It is tempting to characterize Ross as one of the premier locations in Marin - but that temptation exists with many communities in Marin County. The truth is that Marin is full of wonderful towns - and Ross is one of them. Tucked in between Kentfield and San Anselmo, Ross has long been a bastion of the well to do. In the late 1800's expansive estates were built as holiday homes for prosperous San Franciscans. Not much has changed; the properties are still large and exclusive, the residents are still wealthy, and Ross is still a highly desirable location.

Ross Common is what they call downtown Ross. With a few small shops and restaurants, the post office, and a small park, Ross Common is the center of daily activity. The same family has operated the Ross Grocery for more than 50 years. Residents still pick up their mail at the post office, as there is no mail delivery in Ross - despite the fact it is one of the wealthiest zip codes in the United States. The rich and famous still stroll the streets. Life in Ross is sophisticated and casual.
Ross has retained its rural feel due, in part, to strict zoning restrictions that limit development. Homes are on large properties surrounded by trees and represent a large variety of architectural styles. Some have a vaguely Victorian influence, others are contemporary or mid-century modern in design, and there are many ranch style homes.
Housing is expensive in Ross, and the market trend continues to rise steadily, but with excellent schools and a well-educated, affluent populace, Ross has a lot to offer. If you are looking for a rural setting with Marin ambience you can find it here.
