Built in 1767, "Rosemont" is purported to be the oldest house in Laurel. It was built by James Mitchell, father of Delaware's 6th Governor Nathaniel Mitchell (1753-1814). A Georgian structure, it was later adapted to the Greek Revival style evidenced by the addition of a two-story portico. An old millstone beckons you to enter the rear mudroom, which gives access to the back hall, laundry closet, basement, and FR. Access the side yard via sliding doors from the sunroom and FR. The upstairs bathroom has dual entrances from the hall as well as the master BR. Some original mantels, doors, mouldings and hardware can be found throughout the home. A large built-in corner cupboard and plate rail are featured in the formal DR. The knotty pine paneled den (which can be used as an office) has shelving around the perimeter at ceiling level; and French doors connect it to the large FR & sunroom. The home offers good storage options throughout. Embrace the charms, historical appeal and intrigue of this unique property situated on a 1.7 acre corner location near the waterfront district of downtown Laurel.
