Ross is a small town in Central Marin County off of Sir Francis Drake Blvd. between Kentfield and San Anselmo. Ross has a population of about 2500. The town is bordered by Kentfield and Greenbrae to the east, Larkspur to the south and San Anselmo to the north.
Ross has long been home to the very wealthy. In the late 1800’s sprawling estates were built as summer homes for well to do San Franciscans. Today Ross remains a very exclusive community with homes that are still large and quite pricey.
Downtown Ross is called Ross Commons and comprises a few boutiques, a couple of restaurants, a coffee shop, a grocery store owned and operated by the same family for over fifty years, and the award winning Ross School. At the center of social activity is the post office where residents pick up their mail as there is no mail delivery in Ross.
At the end of Lagunitas Road, Phoenix Lake and the Mt. Tam Watershed park area offer hikers pristine trails with beautiful views of the lake and nature at its best.
Easily accessible from Highway 101 via Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, Ross boasts some of Marin’s most prized and coveted real estate—majestic gated mansions and beautiful hillside homes with breathtaking views of Mt. Tamalpais. Single family homes range in price from about $1,000,000 to $22,000,000.
