Charm & location come together in this classic Ross shingle-style cottage! Coveted Woodside Way is a cul-de-sac just 3 blocks from the distinguished Ross School (K-8).

The magical back yard features a patio, play area (with play structure & swing), & mature gardens. Close to Ross School, Branson School, downtown Ross, and Phoenix Lake hiking/biking trails. Don't miss this!
Don't let the grand homes, private tennis courts, and gated drives fool you. Beneath its leafy exterior, Ross remains a perfect place to raise a family. That's not just an opinion--according to the 2000 census, 30% of the residents of Ross are children and teenagers.
The kids of Ross typically attend Ross Elementary School (K-8), which was recently named one of the 10 best schools in the country by Child Magazine. Nearby Redwood High School is one of the top high schools in California. The Branson School, also in Ross, is a private college preparatory school serving students in grades 9-12.
When they aren't attending the some of the best schools in the nation, the kids of Ross, along with their parents, can be found in the pristine Ross Common, or picnicking, hiking and fishing in nearby Phoenix Lake. Hiking and biking trails abound, and it's easy to spend the day on Mt. Tam. The Ross Recreation Department offers a multitude of classes for children and adults, as well as public tennis courts.
Be sure to start by visiting Cafe on the Common, a hole-in-the-wall bakery and load up on their fresh, out of this world pastries and coffee. Diners can choose either Italian home cooking at Trattoria Fresco, or the French Provincial cuisine at Marche aux Fleurs, a restaurant noted for its elegant garden dining, and menu featuring the freshest, local seasonal ingredients available.
The delightful Marin Art & Garden Center, also in Ross, hosts Pixie Park, a cooperative park for young children. MAAGC also offers free public concerts in the summer season.
