Ross is one of the most prestigious places to reside in Marin. Ross is a town of about 800 homes and is located just 25 minutes from the Golden Gate bridge and San Francisco Shaded roads and lanes enhance this lovely town of large estates and luxury custom homes. Larger properties are in park-like settings, many which have tennis courts and swimming pools. The Marin Art & Garden Center, a ten-acre site in Ross, offers many classes and activities. It is also a beautiful setting for weddings and private parties. Trees, ponds and gardens make the grounds a delightful place to visit, while the many non-profit and artistic groups based here have made this the cultural center of the Ross Valley.
