Out in Belmont, an elegant English cottage sits tucked away, off Rockmont Road, waiting to be occupied. Set up slightly off of the street, this home feels wonderfully private, opening into an expansive backyard with a little bit of a knoll. The historical, late-1800s shingle-style design of the house makes for irregular lines and an asymmetrical orientation, integrating this property with the manicured grounds it sits on.
“It’s a really inviting house,” says Hammond Residential listing agent Patti McTague, “not one of those big mansions.” With French doors and a unique design, this home is a very visual house, full of the charm that many bigger properties lack.
Ascending to the upper floors of the home, a staircase splits to the right and to the left. To the left is the master bedroom suite–which occupies one whole wing of the house over the garage–complete with a fireplace, built-in bookcases, a sitting room with built-in cabinetry, a walk in closet, and master bath. To the right is a hallway to the rest of the bedrooms, with one bedroom and a family room on the third floor.
McTague cites Rockmont Road as one of the best locations in Belmont–part of “The Old Hill,” a typically wealthier slice of Belmont–due to the variety of homes. “There’s no other house like it in Belmont. It’s one of a kind,” McTague says.
