65 Poplar Avenue , Ross

A very rare opportunity presents itself in the offering of this outstanding residential compound in the heart of downtown Ross. The rarity of the in town estate is unparalleled. The main residence, of Dutch Colonial design, was originally constructed in 1908 and has undergone substantial recent renovations. Great scale with high ceilings, all day sun, and fine, period details throughout, define the +- 3,000 square foot main residence. The heart of the main house is a fabulous newer marble and Caesarstone kitchen/great room that opens directly to the sweeping lawns and in-ground pool. The main residence is further defined by grand scale public rooms and a traditional floor plan with all four bedrooms, including the master suite, on the upper level. The guest/pool house also sits adjacent to the level lawns and pool. The +- 2,000 square foot timber and stone secondary structure allows for complete versatility for the new owner’s particular needs. The two story structure offers large, open main living spaces, ideal for a home office, secondary family room, or teen/rec area. The upper level of the pool/guest house offers two bedrooms and a full bathroom which are conveniently located off the large, open upper level great room. Additionally, there is a full guest/in-law apartment with kitchen, living room, and en-suite bedroom on the lower level.  The +- 15,000 square foot lot/s offer a myriad of recreational opportunities. Sweeping level lawns, an extensive bluestone patio, an outdoor grill, in-ground pool, and stunning mature gardens grace the residence. The property offers its own private gate to the Ross tennis courts and bike path. Gated and completely private, 63 and 65 Poplar Avenue is ideally located just steps from downtown Ross’ many fine shops and restaurants, as well as the award winning K-8th grade Ross School and Ross Common.
