Posted by Karen Monroe — May 27, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO – (May 28, 2008) – Build it and she will come. And that’s just what happened when Ross resident Dr. Rick Newton built his dream home. Only now he and his new bride will be moving to Costa Rica rather than into the recently completed custom-built dreams-do-come-true dream home at 94 Laurel Grove in the desirable town of Ross.East Coast-style, custom-built property in Ross features fine details and finishes throughout.The East Coast-style, grey shingle home with exquisite details and finishes throughout is now available to tour by appointment. Prominent Pacific Union GMAC Real Estate agent Donna Goldman represents the seller. The Ross house is a brand new, ideally situated and designed home that offers a lucky buyer the opportunity to create their own new beginnings. Price is available upon request.“This is a story of how dreams really do come true,” said Goldman, who works exclusively through Pacific Union. “My client built this incredible home all the while noting that it was fabulous in every way except he was lacking what he considered the most important finishing touch: a wife to enjoy it with.”Newton lived as one of the Bay Area’s most eligible bachelors in the original Laurel Grove home for many years with his children. A couple of years ago Newton thought it would be a fun adventure to develop the property and set out to create a home that would take full advantage of its sunny and private park-like setting. Every last detail was incorporated to enable the ultimate in luxury for a family-oriented lifestyle.As fate would have it, while the house was under construction, Newton met his wife through a blind date. During their courtship they often stopped by the house during construction and enjoyed discussing the numerous finish options and making the seemingly daily decisions on one thing or another. The result of this effort is indeed exactly what Newton set out to create."I set out to plan and build one of Marin County’s finest and most beautiful homes. In the process I unexpectedly met one of the world’s finest and most beautiful women. Having just gotten married, we want to build our own dream house together in Costa Rica,” said Newton. “The 94 Laurel Grove home in Ross can now become the reality for some fortunate family’s dream. Donna Goldman is the ultimately skilled realtor who can help make more dreams come true."This sunny, single-story home sits on approximately one mostly level acre of private, gated property. The home has 10-foot-high ceilings, four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths. Its formal living room and dining room, and large front porch and poolside patios are spacious gathering spots just perfect for entertaining. Black walnut floors, CATV wiring and air conditioning are throughout the house. The eat-in kitchen features marble countertops and adjacent media room, and a large suite that opens up to the pool and spa area. The multi-functional suite could be used as an office or guest room, or fifth bedroom. In addition, a separate apartment with full kitchen sits over the carriage house-style, three-car garage.The lush, manicured grounds include extensive use of Connecticut blue stone and New York cobblestone. The heated pool, spa area, indoor steam room and outdoor open-to-the-sky shower are reminiscent of a private resort.During a recent trip to Newton’s beach house in Costa Rica, the newly married couple purchased land and are preparing to build there, thus the sale of 94 Laurel Grove.For more information about the property, visit, or to request a showing, contact Donna Goldman at 415.458.3500,, or visit Union GMAC Real EstateSince 1975, Pacific Union GMAC Real Estate has thoughtfully matched generations of buyers and sellers throughout the entire Bay Area.
