41 Upper Road, Ross

Reminiscent of a picture perfect elegant “country house” in the Napa Valley, this legendary Ross compound has been beautifully updated with stunning, timeless, high-end design finishes throughout. The main house, comprised of 5 bedrooms, 5 full, and one half bathrooms, offers grand scale public spaces with seamless indoor/outdoor living enjoyed from every room in the home. The heart of the house is a fabulous great room with soaring ceilings that spills out to a sweeping level lawn, in-ground pool, and multiple level outdoor entertaining areas. The shingle style main residence offers a rarely available one level living floor plan with the primary bedroom and one additional bedroom, ideal as an office or nursery, on the main level, and three additional en-suite bedrooms on the lower level. The detached guest house offers a myriad of uses including the option for a generous home office, large enough for board meetings, an additional game/family room, or 7th bedroom. The guest house building also offers a small kitchenette and additional private guest quarter with a separate entrance, ideal for an au-pair, or visiting relatives with direct access to a private garden. The lush European inspired south facing grounds offer a total of three grand scale sweeping lawns, in-ground pool and spa, mature plantings with lush rose gardens, +- 1.6 acres of walking paths with beautifully stacked stone walls, a fire pit, large parking court with circular turnaround, old growth trees, vegetable beds, and multiple level outdoor entertaining spaces; ideal for al fresco dining or for hosting large events. “Reach out and touch” Mt. Tam views are enjoyed throughout. The residence is ideally located just a few blocks from the award-winning K-8th grade Ross School, the Ross Common, and in very close proximity to the vast trail network accessed through Mt. Baldy’s trailhead for the “loop” to Phoenix Lake and many of Mt. Tam’s trails for hiking, biking, and running.
