Constructed from c. 1890 to c. 1910, this impressive house features an original two-story, triple-A- roofed, I-house on the left (west), with a c. 1910, two-story, front-gabled, wing on the right (east). The I-house form is three bays wide and single-pile with a decorative gabled centered on the façade and two exterior brick chimneys on the rear elevation. The house has a fieldstone pier foundation, plain weatherboards, and six-over-six wood-sash windows throughout. Wood trim includes rounded cornerboards, deep boxed eaves with wide friezeboards, and quatrefoil vents in the gables. The six-light-over-two-panel door is sheltered by a near-full- width, flat-roofed porch supported by grouped square columns with a decorative railing at the roofline. There is a six-light-over-two-panel door centered on the second-floor façade as well. The front-gabled wing has a canted bay on the façade with four-over-four windows on the cut-away elevations, an interior brick chimney, and a fifteen-light French door on the right elevation that is sheltered by a flat-roofed porch supported by grouped square posts. A one-story, gabled wing projects from the right rear (northeast) with a standing-seam metal roof and grouped four-over-four windows. A modern addition is under construction at the left rear (northwest). Deed indicate that Edward Atkins Rosemond purchased the property in 1885 and Sanborn maps show that the house was constructed between 1888 and 1894. The house appears enlarged on the 1905 Sanborn map with construction to the west of the rear ell, and was further enlarged to the east with a front-gabled form shown on the 1911 edition. Upon his death, Edward Atkins Rosemond left the house to a daughter, Susan Gordon Rosemond Robertson, who then passed to her daughter Mary Susan Roberston Gattis.
