44 Chestnut Avenue, Ross

This outstanding Ross residence was designed in the fashion of the great shingle style homes of Nantucket. Famed architect Steven Wisenbaker (www.stevewisenbakerarchitects.com) created a work of art in the execution of the East Coast style 5 bedroom, 3 full and 2 half bathroom residence. Soaring ceilings, great scale, all day light, milled woodwork, and timeless finishes grace the +-4,285 square foot home. The heart of the home is a grand scale all white Carrera marble kitchen and adjacent great room that has been beautifully updated with classic, high-end designer finishes. All of the home’s public rooms open to a level outdoor entertaining area for optimal indoor/outdoor living. Perfectly site placed on a +-1.4 sprawling acres, the bucolic grounds include old growth Redwoods for needed shade in the warm Ross summers, classic stone walls, sweeping level lawns, bluestone patios, mature gardens, and multiple level outdoor entertaining areas. The residence is ideal for entertaining from both outdoor dinner parties to large scale events. Ridgeline views are enjoyed from many of the home’s main living spaces. 44 Chestnut Avenue is located in one of the community’s most coveted locations, just a few blocks from the award-winning K-8th grade Ross Elementary School and Ross Common.
