Elegant and affluent Ross, hugging the contours of Mt. Tamalpais in the Ross Valley, is the home of many gorgeous large houses and beautiful estates. Styles vary widely, from stunning Victorian estates and Bernard Maybeck-designed works of art, to the height of high-end 50’s modernism. Lots tend to be large, private, and heavily wooded. Ross has some of the best weather in Marin County, and the streets of Ross are quiet and tree-lined. There is a very small but very chic shopping district. Ross is home to the exclusive Lagunitas Club, and is a gateway to Phoenix Lake and the lands and lakes of the Marin Municipal Water District.
Ross has its own elementary school district and is part of the Tamalpais Union High School District.
