Sportive, modernist estate in Ross asks $22 Million

By

If you truly want to get away from the city, you could easily check in move in to this 8,000-square-foot manse on two acres in the private-feeling sanctuary of Ross.

The gated compound sits on pristinely manicured grounds and has indoor-outdoor design for soaking up those warm Marin days, plus gallery-esque common spaces and endless creature comforts. It's modern life in the lap of luxury—and yeah, it comes at a Bay Area price.


Ringed with nature, the modern structure has a dramatic drive, covered entryway, and bubbling fountains. Inside, the white open plan flows well for entertaining. The chef's kitchen, clad in wood and marble, opens onto a casual living space with built-ins for TV and books; a formal dining room and easy breakfast nook both have views and access to the outdoors. Meanwhile, a limestone fireplace warms the elegant sitting room. Also on the main floor are a study overlooking the reflecting pool, a home gym, and wine cellar.

The home has five bedrooms, but it's the master suite that stands out with its sprawling sitting area and ample natural light through sweeping windows. Of the seven bathrooms in the home, the one belonging to this area is the most stunning, with two marble vanities, a central soaking tub, and more outdoor views.

A separate guest house would be move-in ready for any San Francisco apartment dweller with a full kitchen, large bedroom, and outdoor patio. Pickup a game on the basketball court immersed in a grove of trees, wander the gardens with winding paths, do laps in the 20-yard pool, and grab fresh eggs from your chicken coop.
