Situated in the rolling foothills of the coveted Trestle Glen neighborhood, 781 Rosemount is a romantic English Tudor steeped in the picturesque charm of period details such as hardwood floors, soaring timber ceilings, elegant arched doorways and windows, Juliette balcony, period built-ins, and glass doorknobs. The 3++BD/1.5BA floor plan includes an updated modern kitchen with breakfast nook, formal dining room, two bonus rooms, updated baths, and three bedrooms on one level. The finished garage may be a useful space for a home office or studio, and the partially finished basement provides an additional retreat for a rec room or work space. Additional amenities include outdoor spaces for entertaining or relaxing – an enchanting front yard, side patio, and an expansive deck overlooking the treetops. Near coveted schools and Lakeshore and Grand Ave shopping, cafes, and restaurants, the home is also moments from outdoor entertainment at Lake Merritt and Joaquin Miller and Redwood Regional Parks.
From the street, stone steps descend at a gentle slope through the verdant front garden to a brick patio. Behind the arched front door the spacious entryway leads to a gracious living room beneath a vaulted plank ceiling with exposed beams and a large arched window overlooking the enchanting front yard. A stone fireplace with wood mantle graces one wall and a whimsical Juliette balcony overlooks the room.
In the sunken formal dining room traditional double hung windows flank multi pane French doors leading onto an expansive wrap-around deck overlooking the treetops – a beautiful spot for alfresco entertaining or just relaxing as the stars appear in the night sky.
Natural light pours into the adjacent bonus room – two sets of double hung windows overlook the expansive deck and period built-in shelves flank casement windows on the adjoining wall. Glass doors open onto the front patio and enchanting front garden.
On the other side of the dining room, the modern kitchen stylish updates – stone countertops, subway tile backsplash, and a new gas range. The charming breakfast nook is lit by corner windows, and a vintage built-in hutch provides space for storage and display. Beyond the kitchen, the attached garage has been finished to provide space for a home office or studio.
Upstairs, the large primary bedroom is warm and inviting with recessed lights and sunny windows. Two generous closets – one with a built-in dresser – provide abundant storage space.
A bay window sheltered by tall trees creates a cheerful treehouse sensibility in the second bedroom, and at the end of the hall a third bedroom overlooks the back deck and the front patio.
The shared bath has been updated with modern hexagonal tiled floor and chevron tiled shower over tub and a stone-topped vanity.
In the partially finished basement is a bonus room features high windows, soft recessed light, and new carpet – perfect for a family/rec room. Also on this level is a laundry area with utility sink.
Named for the railroad baron Charles Crocker, Crocker Highlands is a charming neighborhood with close proximity to excellent schools, Grand and Lakeshore Avenue shopping areas, Grand Lake Theater, and abundant restaurant choices.
