Community Description

In Ross, every time you come home you feel like you’ve arrived. Amongst lush, tree covered hills, winding creeks, and graciously landscaped streets and gardens, are some of the world’s most dazzling homes. There is a mélange of architectural artistry and each of these exquisite residences are luxuriously appointed, embracing every fine amenity.

The appeal of an extraordinary home is its distinctive character. Because of the strict zoning restrictions that limit development in Ross, each property’s personality is unobstructed; there are only about 884 housing units. 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 lifestyles. The Town Council strives to preserve and enhance its historical, low-density character and identity. It is spacious, extremely safe, and has schools that continually rank amongst the highest in the nation.
