We cover a lot of high-end properties, but when a home with a blue-blood name, a pedigreed architect, a dream pool, and an oak tree-covered lot comes on the market, we get to use the "E" word. Treehaven, located at 128 Winding Way in Ross is what we call an estate (see the aerial photo above). It was designed by Albert John Evers in 1927. Evers was a Bernard Maybeck protege, and it shows in his work on this classic, shingle-style home. A two-year remodel was completed in 2015, and now it's on the market for $8.875 million.
There are a lot of traditional elements in the house, and we assume some are original to it. It has a gambrel roof, mahogany windows and doors, tongue-and-groove ceilings, and batten-board wainscoting. But in addition to those classic features, there's an undeniable element of easygoing California cool about the place. Maybe it's the many outdoor living opportunities, including multiple decks and an amazing pool area that includes a cabana and a grand stone fireplace.
You can't write about this property without mentioning the views. From the house you can see Mt. Tamalpais, Bald Hill, and Ross Valley. The listing calls it "park-like," and that might be an uncharacteristic real estate listing understatement.
