Welcome to 170 Laurel Grove in sunny Ross. This magnificent gated estate is situated on a very private parcel with a total of five buildings on the property. Boasting an enormous flat yard adjacent to the pool, spa and pool house, this amazing residence embodies indoor/outdoor living at its finest.

At the rear of the estate is a hillside with two guest cottages perched above. Accessed by a quaint nature path or the automatic hillavator, these cottages add tremendous value to the property as they are as flexible as they are charming.

The main house was constructed in the mid-2000s which means modern-day construction quality, great closets, and an open layout. The home features six bedrooms and four full baths on two floors. The lower floor is comprised of huge open living space with two kitchens, a wet bar, and the master wing. The living, dining and primary kitchen are all open to one another for ideal flow while entertaining and everyday living. Perhaps the best feature of this open area is the adjacent outdoor entertainment area - which includes a stainless BBQ grill, plumbed fire pit, and plenty of room for al fresco dining and lounging. This area overlooks the sprawling lawn, exquisite landscaping, and in-ground pool/spa.

The kitchen is outfitted with top-end appliances by SubZero, Miele, and Wolf. A center island with butcher-block top provides casual dining and plenty of food-prep areas while a secondary kitchen is perfect for keeping the cooking messes out of sight. The wet bar is equipped with a Fisher-Paykel glass washer and a Eurocave wine refrigerator.

The master suite enjoys easy access to the outdoors through a set of French doors opening up to a master patio. Built-in shelves, air conditioning, gas fireplace, and his/her closets are features of the master, culminating in a luxurious bathroom with a glass-stall steam shower, free-standing tub and sitting room (or nursery) with Murphy bed.

An office and powder room round out the first floor, the latter of which is located near the towering atrium-style staircase that ascends to the second floor. Upstairs are four huge bedrooms, each flexible in use and some featuring vaulted ceilings. One of the bedrooms has a wall of built-ins which could double as a home office, and another features a cute kids' fort. The bedrooms are air-conditioned as well and two full baths are located on this level.

Other features of the main house include hardwood floors throughout, recessed lights with Omni-directional art spots, Lutron lighting scenes, Sonos system with multiple zones and high-end components/speakers, handsome wood-beamed ceilings, and gorgeous light fixtures.

At the foot of the pool is a totally remodeled pool house which opens completely to the outdoors by way of a collapsable Nana wall. The pool house has a kitchenette, flat screen television, air conditioning and a full bath with high-end finishes. The pool and spa itself are brand new.

At the rear of the home is a huge 2-car garage with plenty of room for storage. Above the garage is a legal loft space, perfect for a kids playroom, home gym, art studio or media room. The upper section of the garage leads to the hillavator, which wisks guests up the hillside to the two cottages.

170 Laurel Grove is ideally located in the flats of Ross and benefits from a highly desirable, award-winning school district. Commuting to San Francisco is easy as the home is proximate to the Sir Francis Drake artery.
