The private gated entry with expansive auto court greets you as this exceptional Craftsman is unveiled. A charming beamed trellis covers the brick courtyard drawing you into the foyer.
This custom designed 1904 brown shingled classic is enhanced with a wraparound deck and covered porches that gaze over the 1½ acre park like grounds. The detailed gardens were the creative genius of the renowned landscape architect Brandon Tyson who was commissioned to transform the property into the celebrated dream garden it is today. The bones of this terraced, woodland garden have been honored and updated with an extraordinary collection of rare plants showcased in the Ross School Garden Tour.
The foyer flows easily into the grand formal living room, formal dining room, and the heart of the home: the exquisite open kitchen with its generous breakfast room, and adjoining family room. The open stairway leads to four en suite bedrooms on the second floor. The gracious master is a three-room suite with walk-in dressing room, corner sitting room/study or possible nursery, and an elegant master bath.
This home exudes classic charm with the warmth of a relaxed sanctuary only to be found in rare instances. The design is enhanced with wood floors throughout, original wood sash windows, crown moldings, nine foot ceilings in all the common areas, plus five wood burning fireplaces. A home to be enjoyed and one that invokes a relaxed feeling every moment.
The guest house was transformed from the original barn structure to accommodate multipurpose lifestyles. A home office, kids play room or artist studio with a wet bar, a steam bath, and private decking.
Strolling through the lush landscaped grounds dotted with flowering Dove Trees, we enter a spectacular grove of gorgeous dogwood trees with fluttering white blossoms. The grand 100 year old stately oak trees create a feeling of serenity and quiet rarely found in a close to town site such as this.
Morning sun awakens you to the splendors of this enchanting garden spot in the coveted Ross proper. It provides the perfect blend of privacy, oak forested views and easy access to the quaint town of Ross and San Anselmo. You are irresistibly drawn into this perfectly sited Ross privacy, its lush professionally designed landscaping, free form dark bottomed pool and secluded garden hot tub. The abundant
grounds are dotted with wisteria, rose gardens, extensive walking pathways and level grounds that beg exploring.
