Beautiful and gracious 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home offering great privacy with spectacular ridge-top views of the Ross Valley, surrounding mountains, and the San Francisco skyline. This custom-built, mid-century modern home with its inviting, warm and open feel was designed and created as a perfect, quiet refuge by the architect Ralph Priestly for his own family in 1958. The current owners have lived in this light-filled home for over 28 years, enjoying its spaciousness and adaptability for family as well as for large gatherings. A short, private driveway leads to a 2-car garage and the main entry. The first floor includes 2 large en-suite bedrooms, a sauna, large deck, laundry room, loads of storage, and a studio that can also be used as an office or playroom. A beautiful staircase and two stories of floor-to-ceiling windows lead to the main living areas. On this main level, more floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outside in to the spacious living room, formal dining room and kitchen. These bright spaces lead immediately out to the terrace, pool, enormous deck and sunny garden areas, overlooked by the stately oaks, rhododendrons, and other mature plantings. Also on the main level are a guest powder room and the master bedroom suite that enjoys more magical views of the Ross Valley as well as of Mt. Tam. You have the wonderful opportunity to make this unique gem your own in the coveted Ross School District.
