Secluded Country Lifestyle with Close-in Convenience

19460 Bainter Way, Los Gatos

Surrounded in natural beauty with heritage trees and sun-swept open space along a gently flowing creek, this property seems miles away from everything yet is ever so convenient to the Saratoga Village and downtown Los Gatos. The property is on the market for the first time – a cherished home on more than 1.1 acres that was once part of a larger parcel owned by the same family dating back to when there were just two other homes on the street.
The sprawling home is oriented to the surrounding natural beauty of the grounds and the sounds of the seasonal creek. Custom stained glass, in a Frank Lloyd Wright pattern, introduces the home beneath a majestic heritage redwood and oaks. The interiors are freshly painted complemented by high-end flooring and new carpet. Skylights and expansive windows fill the home with abundant light and garden views. Spacious formal rooms are scaled for entertaining served by a large kitchen with quality appliances and significant counter space. An adjacent family room, with wood-paneled ceiling and accent walls, offers a warm and inviting spot for everyday living.
Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, including the primary suite, a second suite ideal for guests, plus two bedrooms with a shared bath. California living awaits outdoors with a fire pit, a fully protected vegetable garden, and mature orchard with rare pink lemons, peaches, plums, and citrus. The gentle slope of the grounds also lends itself to a possible vineyard. Whether enjoying the home today or transforming it into your own dream vision, this is clearly a wonderful place to call home for the next generation.
