Here’s a property coming on the market that you don’t see every day. The Cats estate in Los Gatos is for sale. It’s right off Highway 17 just a mile south of downtown Los Gatos, next to the The Cats Restaurant & Tavern. Thanks very much to Burbed reader Kir from Inside Los Gatos for passing this item along.

Does nine million seem like the right price for a property like this? Think of all the fun you’ll have with everyone who ever knew you in elementary school dropping by because “they were in the neighborhood.”
This is the gatehouse above right. Below is the main house.
All these pictures were snagged from the videos on Duane Adam’s site. Below left is a view inside the main house, and below right is the Poet’s Cottage. The latter gives just a taste of the views from the property. Plenty more in the videos, plus footage from the 1930s!
Watch the daughter of the current owner get all choked up over the property being sold. She says whoever gets the property will be “very lucky,” so why didn’t they price it at $8,888,888?
One thing we did discover that isn’t on Adam’s site: the actual address. If you bought the Cats Estate, you’ll be receiving your mail at 17525 Santa Cruz Hwy, Los Gatos, CA 95033.
