Los Gatos may be a bustling town in the heart of Silicon Valley’s high-tech world, but it’s also one of the few towns in the Bay Area where people can have a country cabin for a reasonable price.

That’s exactly what 1850 Bear Canyon Road is: A two-bedroom, three-bath country cabin with a deck that looks out on the mountains and the canyon. The theme here is wood, inside and out, with a stunning wood exterior that blends into the forest, and beautiful hard wood floors, ceilings and trim. This house is green, with enough electricity generated by solar panels to keep it off the grid, and yet it has all the amenities of modern life, including a spacious kitchen with all the modern amenities, including a built-in oven and range. The house features high, vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams. The main bathroom includes a raised claw foot tub. The property is approved for horses and other livestock. This one-of-a-kind cabin is selling for $299,000.

Another country house in Los Gatos is located at 19536 Manzanita Drive. Easy to pick out because of its shingled exterior, this is a three-bedroom, two-bath home near the Felton Station Open Space Preserve. The home features a large eat-in kitchen, a large living room with a vaulted ceiling and skylights to flood it with natural light and a separate den. The deck offers a gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains, with plenty of room for outdoor dining. The house itself occupies 2,300 square feet on a vast lot of over half an acre. This home is selling for $339,000.

Another great home in the country is located at 500 Hawk Crest Road. Don’t be fooled by the size. While the house itself is 1,547 square feet, the property includes an artist’s studio, a guest house and separate guest quarters. The house is set in the woods, with breathtaking views of the mountains, valley and canyon. These can also be seen from the towering bay windows in the cozy living room, kept warm on those crisp winter nights with a massive, freestanding stone fireplace. The kitchen includes all the amenities, including a refrigerator, oven/range combo and dishwasher. The lot is vast, and there is space for a private tennis court available. Set amid the redwoods, there is also a fenced yard, ideal for families with young children. This contemporary country home is selling now for $645,000.
