Monte Sereno is the smallest city in Santa Clara County (where most of Silicon Valley resides). Adjacent to Los Gatos, it shares the police department, parks, and library services with its larger neighbor. Most of Monte Sereno’s homes are within the Los Gatos Union School District, too, though some enjoy Campbell schools.
Like Saratoga, Los Gatos, and the Almaden area of San Jose, Monte Sereno is a west valley community situated at the base of the coastal range or Santa Cruz Mountains, and those lovely hills dominate the scenery there.
Unlike everywhere else in Santa Clara County, Monte Sereno is residential only. There are no shops, restaurants, bars, salons, or other commercial buildings there. There are churches and city offices, but no shops or businesses.
We’ve written about Monte Sereno much more extensively on my “Live in Los Gatos” blog and invite you to learn more about this pretty, upscale suburban community and follow its real estate market there.
