A stately 1910-built home awaits new owners to return it back to its former glory. Designed by renowned local architect Frederick C. Sauer, the Pittsburgh abode boasts incredible architectural details like a brick facade, large porches, and an overhanging roof on the exterior.

Inside, gorgeous millwork like ornate molding, paneling, pocket doors, cornice detailing, a grand staircase, multiple fireplaces, hardwood floors, and more (like stained glass windows) have stood the test of time and are just begging for a refresh.

And with a total of five bedrooms and four baths plus expansive living areas unfurling across nearly 3,700 square feet on three stories, there’s a lot to work with.

The house is situated on a sloping .59-acre site surrounded by trees that provides ample outdoor living opportunities, while a basement billiards room offers additional recreational living. Sold as-is, the property at 311 Highland Terrace has been in the same family since 1920 and is offered at just under $300,000. Have a look.
