Your Private Ross Retreat

Refined and renewed in 2018, with thoughtful updates throughout, this Maybeck inspired 1904 estate embodies the Craftsman ideal with a rare balance of warmth and spaciousness. Breathtakingly private while a short distance to two terrific downtowns, here is a retreat where you’ll relax with family, confidently entertain your most worldly friends, and celebrate any occasion. Its beauty lies in its strong bones and its magic in a bright, airy flow from room to room. Wherever you go in this home, from its big, sunny breakfast room to the grand heart of the house or upstairs to its three-room master suite, you’ll find depth and lightness, comfort and luxury, simplicity and intricacy—both inside and out. And what an outside it is! The 1 ½ acres—curated by master landscape architect Brandon Tyson—offer a splendid show of small and grand beauties, year round. And where exactly are you? At the threshold of Mt. Tamalpais and all that amazing hiking and biking.
