“Hi there. This is Tracy Otsuka with Sotheby’s International Realty. I want to tell you about a lovely listing in Ross, Marin County, on Laurel Grove. The property has all the bells and whistles, some which you would expect of a property listed at $8,950,000. It’s big. There are five plus bedrooms, six plus baths, a little over 7000 square feet and the property is sited on this very private 1.4 plus or minus acre lot. There’s a separate guest cottage with full kitchen and bath. It’s just a wonderful arts and crafts style home. It feels very Bernard Mayback and was built in 1903 by Alexander Morrison who founded the San Francisco law firm Morrison and Forrester. When I practiced law, we knew is as MoFo.
How do I describe this property? It’s traditional and it’s classic, but it has no pretense. In fact, it’s warm. It’s comfortable. It is very friendly and when you walk in you can just picture yourself entertaining friends and family during every season for every holiday. There are beautiful traditional rooms with grand fireplaces and coffered ceilings and wainscoting and you can just see yourself there for Thanksgiving, for Hanukah, for Christmas and there’s also English styled gardens. The property was on the Ross Garden Tour. There’s beautiful lawns. There’s fabulous light for spring parties, for Easter and then there’s an amazing pool area which is flanked by pergolas and there’s heirloom roses there and it’s just a beautiful garden setting which would be perfect in the summer for the Fourth of July.
Beyond all this, you have Ross School which is the best in the county. This home will make you, your family, your guests feel welcome and loved year round. It doesn’t hurt that it’s light and bright. It’s on the sunny side of Ross, so it’s out of the shadow of Mount Tam, but it also offers spectacular views of Mount Tam and Mount Baldy.
This beautiful home has not been on the market in almost 30 years. Why don’t you take a look at the photos and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear your comments. You can reach me at tracy@tracyotsuka·com.
Thank you so much for listening and again, love to hear your comments and we’ll chat soon. Have a great day. Bye, bye.”
