51 Loma Linda Avenue, Ross

Richly steeped in Ross history, this outstanding estate was originally developed in 1913 as an iconic hunting lodge for visitors from all over California. Site placed on one of the very best properties in the Winship Park neighborhood, the current owners have spent over four years on a timeless restoration of the main residence. The outstanding design incorporates a unique blend of high-end, customized design and classic vintage architecture. The extensive use of white marble, board and batten, box beam ceilings, custom wall coverings, designer lighting, and high-end fixtures grace the just under +-6,853 square foot main residence and detached guest house. The ideal floor plan in the main house incorporates four bedrooms on the upper level, including the hotel like master suite, with two additional bedrooms on the lowest level. The detached one-bedroom guest house is ideal for in-laws, au-pairs, or a fully contained “work at home” office. The residence additionally offers two grand scale family rooms, one located on the main level and a secondary family room on the lower level. Ideal for entertaining, the residence has played host to a myriad of community events and is also ideal for smaller gatherings and more intimate holiday dinners. Perfectly site placed on a sun filled, south facing, +- 6/10th of an acre, the residence takes advantage of unparalleled sweeping views that extend from the hills of San Anselmo, to Mt. Baldy, to Mt. Tam. The mature and mostly level exterior living spaces offer a gated garden oasis that includes an in-ground pool and spa, sweeping level lawn, shaded outdoor dining area with gas grill, and grand scale deck and firepit conveniently located off the kitchen. The mature, lush gardens include old growth Palms, Oaks, Olive trees, Apple trees, veggie gardens, and beautifully designed rose gardens. There is an additional adjacent parcel (PN 072-121-02) that could potentially be developed located in the rear of the property (buyer to verify with the Town of Ross). Located in the coveted K-8th grade award winning Ross School District just one block above the coveted flats of Winship Park.
