Pittsburgh house description

This an extraordinary house surrounded by trees and natural beauty. The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood 20 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, and when you pass through the front door you enter a very private, serene space.

The two-story family room is spacious and comfortable. A 60-foot long deck runs along the entire back of the house, overlooking acres of woods. The deck features a covered gazebo, comfortable outdoor furniture, a wood-burning fireplace, tiki torches, and a combination gas/charcoal grill. There are doors leading out to the deck from the master bedroom, living room, and dining room.

The back yard is very unique and beautifully maintained, with a large koi pond, two waterfalls, and an artificial stream.

There is a large, modern kitchen, dining room, laundry room, and 2.5 bathrooms.

The property is best suited for a couple or a small family. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and the second bedroom features a full-size bed. The bedrooms are separated by a hallway with closets and two bathrooms, but you have to go through the master bedroom in order to get to the second bedroom.

The property does not have cable TV at this time, but Apple TV, Netflix and Hulu are available.
