    Description

    ***NEW ROOF COMING!***Rosemont's cachet comes first to mind, tree-lined streets and those individualized, all-season front porches - the nostalgia of neighborly greetings on early mornings and cool evenings. No need to tidy up the house, lots can happen on the front porch. And you'll find pleasant surprises around every corner.As you enter, your first impression is of a classic, much-loved, 100-year old home: Welcoming interior, living room with wood-burning fireplace accommodates two conversation areas and passes through archway into over-sized dining room. Those huge windows in all rooms plus 9' ceilings on the main level truly brighten any day. A cozy family room with well-crafted built-in cabinets and bookcases and fireplace, full bath, long ago updated kitchen amplified by breakfast sunroom - all with a circular flow. You might miss that door off the living room - a surprise front den/library or sun room - could be an office or studio (all that light!) or a secret get-away.You can imagine this being the very best home in which to stay and be safe! The present owners did so for forty-three years. In fact, it is believed that the home has only had two owners in all these years. Whoever gets to be number three will be the lucky ones!The stairway to the second floor attracts your attention - those windows again! You're amazed by the abundance of space and light: three very large bedrooms, each with their unique charm, and two full baths. The master bedroom gives a tree-house sensation with space for sitting area and a desk. Large armoire conveys! Part of the master bedroom suite upgrade, there is a sizable walk-in closet, unusual in a home this age. An ample master bath with tub and separate shower and WC, complete the suite. A window seat highlights one bedroom and the other features a reading/writing nook with loads of under-eve storage. Both bedrooms have closeted vanities with sinks and mirrors- a stroke of genius!Conveying newer model front loading washer and dryer are conveniently located in a closet off the MBR. Main and upper level have wood floors throughout. But that is not all. Oh no. That is not all!* Return to the kitchen and descend to the spacious unfinished basement - lots of possibilities there. Continue through and out the back door to a small patio with private entrance to a small apartment complete with ensuite bath. Sparkle it up and you have the perfect place for adult children, grandparents - or quarantine! :-)Enhancing the landscape of mature plantings is a picturesque old vine-covered garage - the perfect gardening and/or storage shed. Or take it down and have two off street parking spaces even though there is always ample street parking out front. Use your imagination here and throughout - create your forever home, the home of your dreams! Like any property of this vintage, this spacious Rosemont jewel with excellent bones, will require updates and improvements to achieve that forever home. To give you a head start, Seller is having NEW ROOF with architectural shingles installed by end of July. Oh, did I forget to mention that Maury School and Beach Park are a half block away? *The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Suess
