9 Ames Avenue, Ross

Inspired by the great shingle style estates of the Hamptons, this outstanding +- 4,285 square foot Jared Polsky designed residence is available for the first time since its completion in 2003. No attention to detail was spared in the creation of the outstanding architecturally transitional residence, which masterfully combines classic moldings, high-end fixtures, and beautifully proportioned windows and doors with great scale and clean lined, timeless finishes throughout. The heart of the house is a grand scale great room with soaring ceilings that opens directly to the pool, lawn, and outdoor living spaces. The residence also offers a coveted secondary family room with a flexible floor plan. The 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom residence is perfectly site placed on a verdant +- 1.1-acre lot that is fully fenced, gated, very private and quiet. The resort like grounds include the generous use of stone walls, large level lawn, in-ground pool, mature trees and plantings, and elevated areas for additional outdoor entertaining spaces. 9 Ames is located on one of Ross’ most coveted streets, ideally located at the end of a small cul-de-sac with no through traffic and blocks to the award-winning K-8th grade Ross School and Ross Common, with almost immediate access to the vast network of hiking and biking trails in the Phoenix Lake recreational area.
