Christened Quail Hill Estate, named after the area’s onetime quail population, this Japanese-style midcentury mansion sitting on 20 acres overlooking Mount Tamalpais comes with a price tag asking $43 million.

If sold at its eye-popping offering, it would make it one of the most expensive homes ever sold in the tony town of Ross.

Featuring eight bedrooms, eight and one half bathroom, and over 11,565 square feet, Quail Hill Estate comes with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of not only tree-studded mountains in the distance, but also of the home’s center courtyard gardens designed by Nagao Sakuri, noted landscape architect who designed the Zen Garden in the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park.

Gardens and a stone pathway greet you as you make your way to the entrance.

The massive estate also includes a swimming pool and pool pavilion, staff quarters, pitched roofs, numerous gazebos, a bar, and garage parking for six vehicles.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the same family has owned the home for around 50 years, designed by architect Mitsuru Tada and built by Robert Pomeroy, who worked for J.H. Pomeroy, a construction company that helped build the Golden Gate Bridge.

The home is listed off-market by Compass agent Neal Ward.
