Field Trip to Ross!July 2, 2009
We’re sure many of you are already breaking for a long weekend, so the time is ripe for a little field trip up north. Get your parents to sign those permission slips so we can hop on the bus and head out!
Destination? 1 Upper Road in Ross. Mission? To scope out a new $17.5 million listing that three of our colleagues just listed. This amazing estate features a mansion, five auxiliary buildings, a tennis court, swimming pool, pool cabana, redwood grove, spa facility, car barn, meandering nature trails, creek, and suspension bridge… sprawled out on 3 acres of Northern California paradise.
If you’re curious how the other half lives, or just appreciate fine real estate, you might get a kick out the website and photo galleries. Want a tour in person? It’s by private showing only, of course, so call us if it’s just what you’ve been looking for. (Sorry, couldn’t resist!)
