Nestled in between Old Town and Del Ray is the charming neighborhood of Rosemont.

One of the most appealing features of Rosemont real estate is its welcoming suburban feel paired with a walkable urban lifestyle.
Its charming streets and classic architecture have stood the test of time and continue to draw house hunters from all areas.
