The story of 796 Rosemount Road
Expanded and exceptionally enhanced, this tony Tudor Revival is simultaneously classic and contemporary. Modern amenities and sophisticated surfaces intermix ideally with preserved period panache. Its exalted, expansive living space comprises four bedrooms, including a majestic master suite, three renovated full bathrooms plus powder room, charismatic public rooms, including family room and streamlined butler’s pantry-endowed kitchen, both connecting to a sheltered courtyard.
Both home and Crocker Highlands setting combine equal parts picturesque and practical. Enchanting architecture tucks in along Rosemount Road, while the location remains within walking distance of highly rated schools and Grand-Lakeshore’s vibrant retail, recreation, and café culture. The brick approach to 796 forms a terrace for lounging in view of the home’s towering façade, with dormer windows accentuating a multi-gable roofline, plus Bay and diamond-pane windows flanking an arched entry.
Enter to a center-hall layout graced with well-preserved 1930’s character, including hardwood flooring. Public spaces radiate sunshine and sophistication; the broad living room features a Bay window that spans the front wall and, anchoring another, a marble fireplace with dentil-molding surround. The dining room’s leaded glass window highlights the home’s enduring allure and its seamless connection to modern embellishment via the adjacent contemporary butler’s pantry. Thoroughly renovated, the dine-in kitchen integrates a suite of sleek Fisher & Paykel appliances, including a five-burner double-oven range and double-drawer dishwasher, set amid thick swaths of veined quartz countertop. Tying to the butler’s pantry, the kitchen’s abundance of flat-panel cabinetry sports modern rectangular hardware. From the banquetted breakfast area, glass doors open to a brick courtyard. Also opening to the courtyard, the family room contains a closet, ideal for media or equipping it as a fifth bedroom. Laundry and powder rooms sit just off the kitchen.
Four generously proportioned second-floor bedrooms include the grand master suite.
At the far end of the hallway, a cathedral ceiling tents bedroom and bathroom. An airy retreat, it opens via glass doors to a tranquil woodland garden. A lengthy walk-in closet features entries from two ends, and a lengthier three-chamber bathroom links two commode rooms to a shower room with refined gray and taupe tile scheme. With a similarly neutral palette of glass and ceramic tile, two additional bathrooms, cohesively updated, serve three large and lovely bedrooms.
An array of storage facilities includes closets substantial in number and size, an attached garage, and attic.
