Statement of Interest

248 and 250 Rosemount Place follow the same formula of the "Aberdeen Cottage" (Brogden), developed from the Butt and Ben by the 1820's. They usually have 2 main rooms on the ground floor, a smaller room tucked behind and further accommodation in the attic, lit by canted dormers. However, 248 and 250 Rosemount Place form one of the grander examples in Rosemount, here the canted window has been replaced by a bow, as has the traditional dormer. The doorway too is more decorative.
