The Story of 691 Rosemount Road
Adjacent to the widespread intersection of Rosemount and Longridge Roads, this Monterey Colonial sits among an array of regal architecture neighboring a picturesque little park. The majesty of the setting combines with absolute convenience, offering scenic walkability to everyday everything: highly rated schools, transportation, Grand-Lake’s dynamic hub for shopping, services, dining, and recreation.
Original thirties-era character, well preserved throughout the exterior and interior, intermixes with elaborate refurbishment including a renovated dine-in kitchen and bathrooms, plus infrastructure upgrades. Three floors of living space offer privacy to bedrooms on the upper level, gracious and spacious entry-level public rooms featuring outdoor connections, and lower level opening to a garden terrace endowed with large family-media room, wine and butler’s pantries, fourth bedroom, full bathroom, and separate entry befitting it as an in law or au pair.
Hallmarks of Monterey Colonial style embellish the façade, such as balconies, decorative shutters, and brick topped by clapboard. Outlining the home, broad lawn with a brick walk forms a level entry; brick paths also wind through the park-like back garden. Exalting the interior, polished period elements include random-plank hardwood floors and ceiling detailing, while renovations harmonize with the home’s period aesthetic.
All-contemporary kitchen components impart high-caliber capability with enduring style. Stainless appliances, including a Viking six-burner gas range, integrate amid earthy-hued quartz counters and subway-tile backsplashes in jade, corresponding to the home’s verdant surroundings. Glass knobs adorn abundant cabinetry, including well configured pantries, accentuating them with vintage style. French doors from both the breakfast area and living room open to a deck screened by soaring evergreens that spans the width of the home, ideal for al fresco grilling, dining, and lounging.
With great visual connection to the surrounding woodland garden, the interior merges with the thriving treed landscape. Second-floor bedrooms enjoy tree-top outlooks, while the master opens to balconies overlooking both front and back gardens. All noteworthy for walk-in closets, the master contains a pair. The master and hall bathrooms, as well as the main-floor powder room and lower-level full bath, reflect variations on an earth-tone theme combining tile and natural stone.
Infrastructure enhancements ensure exquisite livability and energy efficiency. They include central air conditioning, double-pane windows throughout, integrated sound systems, dual high-efficiency furnaces, on-demand hot water, and gas fireplaces in living and family rooms. Extensive, like the living space, storage space includes an attached two-car garage.
