Pittsburgh townhome description

This darling brick, completely renovated, 'alley house' on one of the best Mexican War Street blocks, dates from the mid 1800's. It has a sweet patio and walled garden set back from the street with lots of greenery and privacy but is only a few blocks from all the stadiums, the new casino, the Andy Warhol Museum, Mattress Factory (one of the country's premiere centers for art installations), the Aviary, the Science Center with an IMAX theatre, and downtown (less than one mile--an easy walk). Allegheny Park is one block away--great for biking and renting kayaks at the lake. The local pub is a block over, and our block, only one block long, is famous for its spontaneous 'stoopings' and very friendly neighbors. On the street parking is always available and very safe.


There is so much to see and do in the 'Burgh and having your own pied a terre right in the middle of everything is the perfect way to do it. Troy Hill is nearby with its incredible collection of saintly relics from the 19th century (and earlier). The Southside and Shadyside with their shops, restaurants, theatres and clubs are a short ride. The convention Center and downtown are just across the bridge. The river with it walks, tour boats and other amenities is a short walk away. Pittsburgh has got to be one of the most interesting US cities with its many distinct ethnic neighborhoods, hilly terrain, and Eastern European feel.

Location

This gem of a petite townhouse is in the historic Mexican War Streets district of Pittsburgh just a short mile to the famous confluence of the Three Rivers where downtown Pittsburgh overlooks the stadiums, the Andy Warhol Museum, the cable cars that go to the top of Mt. Washington, the riverboats, the casino, the bike and walking trail along the rivers, etc. The neighborhood and neighbors are the best.

Other Activities: museum-going, shows, opera, theatre galore, restaurants, shopping --all kinds of urban fun. but if you like you can bike on the three-rivers trails or in Allegheny Park just down the street; rent kayaks on the river, etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have been captivated with Pittsburgh since we fell in love there in the 1960's. It's one of the best undiscovered US cities, and recently has ranked as a top destination and retirement location. We love our little pied de terre and got it in order to spend more time in the 'Burgh after we retired.

Why the Owner Chose Pittsburgh:
Resaca Street is one of the most charming city streets we've ever seen. The Mexican War Streets is located in the heart of the Northside which has been undergoing redevelopment for decades, has its own Historical Commission and has worked hard to keep its original character. We feel lucky to have found such a friendly neighborhood and welcoming block of new friends.
