Ross is nestled among lush, tree covered hills, winding creeks, and graciously landscaped streets and gardens. In the 1800’s expansive estates were built by wealthy San Franciscans as holiday homes. Many of these mansions remain and Ross still represents the pinnacle of luxurious living. The Town Council strives to preserve and enhance its historical, low density character and identity. It is also home to some of the world’s most dazzling estates.
Because of the strict zoning restrictions that limit development in Ross, each property’s personality is unobstructed; there are less than 900 housing units. There is a mélange of architectural artistry and each of these exquisite residences are luxuriously appointed, embracing every fine amenity. It is spacious, extremely safe, and has schools that continually rank among the highest in the nation.
