Property: Thrash House, 367 Los Gatos Boulevard <br />B. Historic Designation No.: HD -84 -3 <br />C. Description of Designation: Structure <br />D. Description of Characteristics which Justify Designation: <br />This wooden structure, with its low pyramidal roof and overhanging <br />eaves is modestly Itallante in style. It combines details from a <br />variety of sources including shingle and Victorian styles and is best <br />described as "eclectic." Its value lies not in its representation of <br />any particular historical style. Rather, the axiality of the building <br />mass and the landscaping with its two stately Palm trees, maintains an <br />image of grandness reminiscent of a time when large homes lined the <br />street. Preservation status should be considered because this is one <br />of only a few surviving structures representative of the character of <br />Los Gatos Boulevard as it existed in the early part of this century. <br />
