Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
This stately stone house in Pittsburgh was built in 1907 by architect David Simpson and builder William O. Wright. Largely untouched, the handsome home features a wealth of period details like original hardwood floors, box beam ceilings, and extensive, rich woodwork throughout, making it feel hefty and historic.
With six spacious bedrooms, four bathrooms, a gorgeous great room, library, family room, enclosed patio, multiple fireplaces, and more, the rambling residence offers impressively proportioned spaces that could take on a number of functions, whether for entertaining, relaxation, or study.
The Squirrel Hill dwelling—just minutes from Chatham University—needs some work, however. A few updates appear to have been made recently, but the kitchen needs a complete overhaul, as do the bathrooms and a couple of the bedrooms. Still, the bones are certainly strong and aristocratic.
The property also includes a detached garage with a carriage-style guest home perched above it. Located at 5867 Wilkins Ave, it’s offered at $1.25 million.
