  21 Rockridge Rd SW Rome, GA 30165

Active (17 Days)


One of the prettiest houses in Rome is being offered for sale for the first time. 21 Rockridge Rd. is a gorgeous 4-sided brick, traditional Southern architectural style home, lovingly built by Rena & Harold Storey in 1953 as newlyweds and lived in by them ever since. Situated on 2.51 acres in College Heights, it personifies quality construction & attention to detail, both of which are apparent from the moment you step onto the wide front porch with its stately Ionic columns. It's a gracious yet comfortable 5+ bedroom/5.5 bath home, perfect for large-scale entertaining and smaller gatherings with family and friends alike. The MAIN LEVEL includes a welcoming foyer...formal living room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a fireplace (hardwoods under the rug)...banquet-sized dining room...handsome paneled den with fireplace...wonderful sun room with floor-to-ceiling windows on 3 sides and a brick floor...spacious kitchen with both a walk-in pantry and cabinet pantry with pull-outs...breakfast room with butler's pantry...large main bedroom with en-suite bath (hardwoods under the carpet)...a guest bedroom (or home office) with its own bath and a powder room. UPSTAIRS, which can be accessed by a beautiful spiral staircase from the foyer or rear stairs off the kitchen, are 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, including a second main bedroom. There are finished pine floors under the carpet in all 3 bedrooms (hardwood in the upstairs hall landing) and unbelievable storage throughout the second floor, including a huge cedar closet. A finished basement DOWNSTAIRS includes a large rec room with fireplace, laundry room, 2 additional rooms that could be used in multiple ways, 2 half baths and storage galore. A 2-car GARAGE on the basement level enters directly into the lower hallway. The GROUNDS are beautiful and include a brick patio/secret garden enclosed by a pierced-brick wall...lots of established plants and shrubs...and woods that provide privacy and low-maintenance upkeep. The MECHANICALS include 3 HVAC systems, 2 electric panels, a generator that serves the first floor and 2 Ring cameras for security at the front and back doors. One of Rome's most iconic homes, 21 Rockridge epitomizes the old saying they don't build 'em like they used to. It's an exceptional property.
