Bolig

Beskrivelse af vores byttebolig

Distinctive historic 5-bedroom, (currently furnished as 3 bedrooms, 2 studios/studies), 2.5 bath, architectural gem home (Classic Victorian, built 1896), tastefully updated, on corner lot in highly desirable neighborhood. 5 successful rentals in the past to families large and small.

Hardwood floors throughout, central gas heat and central air conditioning. A washer and dryer are located in the basement.

Kitchen recently renovated to include 17 ft long granite countertops, 6-burner restaurant stove, windows on 3 sides, and every other imaginable feature for those who love to cook and/or entertain. Large backyard with flowers on 3 sides and grill, picnic table, buffet tables and lounge chairs on the 4th side. In the era of COVID-19, this garden is large enough, and far enough away from the street on all sides, to allow you to wander among the greenery without worrying about being in contact with others.

Working gas fireplace in dining area in kitchen, and 5 more non-working tiled Arts and Craft era fireplaces in living room and bedrooms.

Bay window, 2-story high original stained glass, and French doors on second floor with bright sunny reading nook.

Master bedroom takes up entire 3rd floor, and includes hidden home theater, cedar closet, and master bath with clawfoot tub and walk-in marble shower.

Abundant storage. May be rented semi-furnished or entirely furnished.

1 block from neighborhood dining street with 6 restaurants and 1 small grocery store. 2 blocks from large park with lake, woods, sledding, dog park, and frequent jazz concerts and movie nights, but away from busy roads. Located in beautiful safe residential neighborhood, near a variety of public and private elementary and high schools. House is close to Carnegie Mellon and the Univ. of Pittsburgh; equally close to Duchesne and other Pittsburgh universities; frequent public transportation is also one block away. 2 bikes are negotiable, as is car.

Pets may be allowed. Garden is surrounded by an electric dog fence so dogs are safe.

Very short distance from the Warhol and other famous Pittsburgh museums. Downtown Pittsburgh is moments away, and Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Falling Water is only a 45 minute drive. Beautiful mountains, state parks and hiking opportunities are easily accessible.

A bit further are Philadelphia, Washington, DC and New York. Toronto Canada is the same driving distance as Philadelphia

This is a perfect home for those who are arriving in Pittsburgh in fall 2020 and want a place all ready for them as they decide where to make their permanent home.

Omgivelser

Beskrivelse af omegn

The Highland Park neighborhood was settled in the late 1800s and is almost entirely made up of owner-occupied Victorian and Arts and Crafts homes. It fell into disrepair in the 1960s and the homes were rescued and renovated in the 1990s, with most (including my own) maintaining their original historic features. It's a residential neighborhood however the one commercial street is becoming popular with 8 restaurants representing 6 different cuisines, a French bakery, and a small market. A small batch ice cream shop has also just arrived!

The neighbors are friendly and have always been helpful to my home exchangers.

The Highland Park is also known for its beautiful large park with picnic grounds and public pool, as well as a beautiful zoo with large open spaces for the animals. It's a very short distance from the Warhol and other famous Pittsburgh museums. Downtown Pittsburgh is moments away. Mountains and rivers a short drive, as is the famous Frank Lloyd Wright Falling Water

Vores lokale tips for muligheder, steder at besøge, mens du er i vor bolig

The house is one block from Bryant Street - Highland Park's center - where there is a french Bakery and 7 restaurants of 6 different nationalities. There is also a small market open 7 days per week.
