Property description

Ever wonder what it would be like to live in the woods…come stay at The Green House! It is nestled in the middle of 100+ acres of woods. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, living room, dining area and full kitchen. The house accommodates 6 guests. The woods are great for hiking and exploring…finding antler sheds or morels is always a treat! There is a fire pit for nighttime s'mores or just sitting next to a crackling fire listening to the evening sounds.

The kitchen will be stocked with basic staples to begin your stay, with the option for personal shopping for all of your meal supplies. A Keurig coffee maker and its coffee is provided. The living room has a mounted flat screen television and a wood burning stove. The ‘bird’ room has a queen sized bed. The ‘deer’ room has two twin bunk beds. The ‘fall’ master bedroom has a queen sized bed, armoire, and a couch for exploring a novel or two. All rooms have full-sized closets and dressers. The master bathroom has a custom tiled shower, while the guest bathroom has a bathtub and shower. There is a stackable washer/dryer with all the provided laundry supplies. All linens and towels are also provided.

Around the house is three acres of manicured land to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods. Bird watching is a great pastime at The Green House. Swarms of humming birds visit through the summer, as well as a whole host of birds that make nests and visit the bird feeder. These birds include: tufted titmouse, wood thrush, cardinal, scarlet tanager, black capped chickadee, grouse, eastern phoebe, nuthatch, blue jay, goldfinch, evening grosbeak, turkey, kestrel, red tail hawk, goshawk, northern flicker, and pileated woodpecker, to name a few. Yard games are a family past time with corn hole, bocce and horse shoes provided.

The Green House is also great for a 'first' family camping experience. There is a fire pit near the house. There is a second camp site further in the woods. These sites allow for a great experience for those who want to camp deep in the woods, and for those who prefer the camping with modern amenities!!

When you decide to venture off the grounds for some area attractions, fill up your coffee cup for a quick trip to Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. The home is approximately an easy 35 minutes to downtown Pittsburgh where all the professional and collegiate sports team venues await. In addition, a wide range of cultural activities, including museums, concerts, and festivals are year round. Previous guests have enjoyed their time at the Fiestaware Factory Outlet, Raccoon Creek State Park, Penguins games, concerts, three area casinos and exploring Pittsburgh. What will your stay entail?

The home has also served as a long term residence for professionals working out of state. The home's location allowed them easy access to Pittsburgh, Ohio, West Virginia, and Pittsburgh International Airport. These guests lived for months in hotels and missed having the ability to cook their own meals, space for their clothes and belongings, and the room to roam about outside the confines of a hotel room. Another common theme our long term guests stressed was their need for privacy. Working 10-16 hours a day, they wanted a place where they could unwind, outside the public eye...they wanted a home away from home.

Whether you stay with us for the solitude and peacefulness of the country, the proximity to Pittsburgh, or both, you will find a comfortable home to meet all your needs.

The Green House is a 'house in the woods', where you live in the peace and quiet of the woods, though a short drive to anything and everything needed...sports, shopping, eating, and other adventures. You can stay solely on the property and enjoy the birds, quietness, deer, camping and just 'being away'. If you want to venture out, the house is close to Pittsburgh, West Virginia and even Ohio for outings.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: The Green House family has owned the property for over 20 years. It has been the residence of several family members and it is still enjoyed today as a weekend get away. Historically, this property was a sheep farm, and speak easy which has grown into a wooded wonderland!

Why the Owner Chose Burgettstown, PA, USA:
The property was purchased to be a place to escape traffic, neighbors and the hustle-and-bustle of suburban living. The Green House was love at first sight for the family and it has stayed that way as it has been passed down to younger generations. Everyone who visits the property loves the warmth, peace, and feeling of 'living in the woods' that it provides. If you ever wanted to experience living away from neighbors and having peace and quiet, give it a try! Although the house is situated within 100+ acres of land, there is still civilization within a 15-20 minute drive.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Green House allows one to escape the din of modern life. Distractions are minimized so that families and friends can focus on their time together whether its during a favorite meal or a quiet walk through the woods. Falling asleep at the base of a large oak and awakening to deer and squirrels feeding nearby is a favorite pastime. The property allows campers to camp in the woods (a site is cleared), while other campers to camp inside. Another benefit is the pure serenity of being still and enjoying Nature as it was intended, uninterrupted.
