This five-acre property on the slopes of Bald Hill, highly visible from populated Ross Valley, straddles Ross and San Anselmo, and is adjacent to the Bald Hill Open Space Preserve. It was once owned by the San Francisco Theological Seminary, and for nearly a century, the property’s spring was used to irrigate the seminary’s landscaping. Seminary Holdings LP, run by brothers Amir Kia and Ali Kia Shabahangi, purchased the lot and in 2020 donated a conservation easement over the land to MOST. The easement prevents development, thus protecting the land as a scenic, ecological, and open space resource. The property’s preservation enhances connectivity between nearby protected lands, supporting the wildlife and native-plant habitat. The land is adjacent to the 60-acre property that includes the iconic Bald Hill summit, a property MOST protected in 2023.
