Elegance of an Older East Cost Town
Ross, CA real estate is comprised of elegant old estates, both large and small. Elm-tree lined streets and streams wind up the hillside, framing homes reminiscent of the best neighborhoods on the East Coast. Real estate, because of its 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. 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 collection of non-profit shops, a library, and a small theater. Winding, hillside streets provide the setting for elegant homes hidden from view by old-growth trees.
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.
