Where: 128 Winding Way in Ross (Listing)

Imagine pairing European elegance with California casual, level indoor-outdoor living with sweeping views, and Maybeck-influenced architecture with updated, contemporary living. It’s rare that a home combines all these qualities, yet Treehaven is just such a home — a truly unique and timeless property in the highly desirable town of Ross, with its abundant hiking and biking trails and award-winning Ross K-8 school.

Built in 1927 by architect Albert John Evers, a protégé of renowned California architect Bernard Maybeck, the house retains the authentic character of a 1920s home, with Gambrel-style ceilings, mahogany custom-built paned windows, batten board wainscoting, tongue-and-groove detailing, and an exquisite living room fireplace, surrounded by original redwood. The home is drenched in sunlight and offers stunning views of the Ross Valley, Mt. Tamalpais, and Bald Hill, all benefits of this home’s truly special and private park-like site.

While the house reflects a European sensibility with features such as the 18th century Rococo panels gracing the entry steps, it also has a distinctly California vibe in the way it seamlessly blends formal and informal, indoor and outdoor living. Both privacy and serenity emanate throughout the home, surrounded by more than an acre of majestic oak trees, gardens and level lawn. From every room, every deck, every window, nature makes herself known.

A covered entry porch leads to the home’s main level, which offers a formal living room, inviting great room, private library, separate den, exercise room and well-appointed mudroom. The sleek kitchen is stunning, with floor to ceiling custom cabinetry in a Farrow & Ball gray palette, an antiqued-mirror backsplash, and Statuario Venato marble island and countertops.

Just off the kitchen and great room are two substantial outdoor living areas. From the great room, two sets of French doors lead to the west balcony, a great place to dine and enjoy the dramatic sunsets or the ever-changing scenery of Mt. Tamalpais. The kitchen opens directly onto expansive Ipe deck with its sparkling pool, hot tub, covered cabana and built-in BBQ. A random ledger wall of Corinthian granite from upstate New York surrounds the pool area, anchored by a large stone fireplace. Meander just a few steps below the pool area and you find an organic garden bursting with vegetables and herbs as well as citrus, figs and nectarines.

The home’s sizeable lower level, which also has a spacious covered veranda, features four bedrooms and two baths. Numerous built-ins can be found throughout the lower level, and throughout the entire home (yes, there’s a staggering amount of storage.)

On the top level, there is a master suite to rival any five-star hotel. With ten-foot tall windows and French doors opening onto a private balcony, the suite offers expansive views. It also exudes luxury and intimacy, with soaring ceilings, custom-finished herringbone oak floors and a European-style master bath of quartz countertops, Waterworks fixtures and a hand-painted tile. A roomy walk-in dressing closet, just off the bath, provides abundant storage.

The oak-studded grounds, valley setting and forever views are reminiscent of a private wine country estate, making it easy to forget the home is just minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and in the middle of everywhere—San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Wine Country — or yet just a stone’s throw from the charming downtown of Ross.

While the home was originally built in the 1920s, it underwent a comprehensive 2-year renovation project from 2013 to 2015, including undergrounding all utilities in addition to extensive site work.
