Elegance of an Older East Cost Town
Ross real estate is comprised of elegant old estates, both large and small. Elm-lined streets and streams follow the hillside, framing homes reminiscent of the best neighborhoods on the East Coast. Ross is small, with about 2,400 residents across 950 housing units. Real estate, because of Ross’s privacy and limited numbers, has always demanded premium prices. Ross equates to quality.
Quiet and Family Oriented
Ross lies both east and west of Sir Frances Drake Blvd. On the west side is the Ross Common Park with a small collection of shops, including a few small restaurants. Mean commute time is 27 minutes and the drive to San Francisco averages 37 minutes. Residents pick up their mail at the post office that faces the Common. The outstanding Ross Elementary School is also on the Common.
On the east side of Sir Frances Drake is the Marin Art and Garden Center, a bucolic garden with an exhibition space, a shop, and The Barn Theater, home of Ross Valley Players.
About a mile west of Ross Common off Lagunitas Road, after you pass by Lagunitas Tennis Club, you enter the tree-covered road to Phoenix Lake. Phoenix Lake is the smallest of the five pristine reservoirs that are part of the Marin Municipal Water District. This is a great place to mountain bike, hike, or go fishing.
