Located in the heart of Ross, one of Marin County’s finest and most historic estates is perfectly sited on 1.3 +/- acres of land with stunning views of Mt. Tamalpais and Mt. Baldy. This magnificent residence has a rich history dating back to 1903 when Alexander Morrison, Founder of San Francisco law firm Morrison and Forester, selected this land to build his private paradise. The residence was built to exquisite standards of architectural design, quality construction, and traditional detailing. The 7,100 +/- sqft, shingled residence, plus separate guest cottage -- total 7 bedrooms, 6 full baths, and 2 half baths -- has been beautifully revitalized and modernized for today’s most discriminating buyer, while preserving the integrity of the outstanding floorplan. Large scale public rooms and a myriad of additional private spaces offer a wonderful indoor-outdoor connection and make this home ideal for family living and large-scale entertaining. This outstanding estate is graced with mature groomed landscaping, fruit trees, lush lawns, expansive decks, and a spectacular resort-like pool with bluestone surround and lounge area. Covered parking for 4 cars, a large motor court, plus a multifunctional room ideal for a gym, complete this idyllic property where memories will be made.
