Surrey Farms, offically called Surrey Farm on the county records, is a highly sought after neighborhood in the Kennedy Road area of east Los Gatos.
A comforably sprawling enclave (it looks to be gated, but the gate never closes) of low-key but spacious homes reside on large, quarter to half-acre lots in most cases (though there are a couple which have more than an acre). Originally built in the mid 1950s to about 1960, these ranch style houses were about 2000 to 3000 SF, but now many are much larger, and some are bigger than 4,000 square feet. Most are still ranch style, though a few have a different look now.
The area once did have horses and a large stable, but those days are now long gone. It is a charming area because it is so unpretentious.
You can read much more about Surrey Farms over at the Live in Los Gatos blog. I invite you to see some pictures and get to know this "close to town" area better by reading Great Neighborhood: Surrey Farms in Los Gatos (an article on the "older" Live in Los Gatos blog site.
If you enjoyed this video drive through of Surrey Farms, please check out my YouTube channel, where I'm building a library of Los Gatos neighborhood videos. There are some slideshows of the area too. Eventually I will add videos of Saratoga, Monte Sereno, and nearby areas of San Jose as well.
