One of the most idyllic properties in Ross! Rarely available, architecturally significant mid-century Ross residence is perfectly site placed facing southwest on sun-kissed 1.25 +/- acre grounds. Basking in the glow of Mt. Tam, the spectacular gardens, originally designed by Thomas Church, surround a mostly one-level residence, originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's office. Grand scale living spaces with vaulted ceilings open directly to spacious bluestone patios, level lawns in front and back, and abundant gardens of roses, hydrangeas, Japanese maples, and fruit trees. Walls of windows and French doors flood the interior with natural light and provide views of the magnificent grounds and Mt. Tam. At the heart of the home, the custom kitchen with huge center island opens to two family rooms and the gracious dining room. Entertaining and family life are made easy here with wonderful indoor-outdoor flow. Architectural details abound with rift-sawn oak cabinetry, two fireplaces, tongue-in-groove ceilings, and inlaid wood floors. Ideal floor plan with three of the five bedrooms on the main level, including the gorgeous primary suite with vaulted ceilings, and two more spacious bedrooms upstairs, all with adjacent full baths. Built-in desks off the kitchen create convenient work-from-home spaces. The primary suite enjoys a private, garden-side patio and spa area with views of Mt. Tam. Pool site. Beyond the manicured gardens and lawns is a magical oak-studded park-like expanse with endless possibilities. Two car attached garage and plenty of off-street parking. Just off Laurel Grove Avenue, this truly special legacy property is in the award-winning K-8 Ross School District and near popular hiking and biking trails.
