About Bob & Sheila
Sheila and Bob love the compound lifestyle with their home and art gallery located within steps of one another separated only by a private car park and walkway. For the past thirty years the Couple has lived, raised four kids, and totally enjoyed the eclectic nature of the architecture, the privacy afforded by the private drive, gated entrances, and large parking area. Most recently, however, the ten room "Pittsburgh House" has acted as an accidental guest house since Bob & Sheila's 2015 retirement from their marketing communications firm which was located in downtown Pittsburgh. And, as fate would have it, the couple decided to downsize their lives and at the same time purchased a century old Frank Lloyd Wright connected farmhouse and vineyard in Chautauqua County, New York. Now, with too many houses with too many bedrooms, Bob & Sheila decided to set-up a small loft apartment within the confines of the adjoining "Eclectic Art & Objects Gallery" and move out of the "Big House" and instead, share it with visitors who are interested in a comfortable, convenient, and affordable extended stay home experience in Pittsburgh. With that background, we welcome you to Pittsburgh and hope that you will choose to stay at "The Pittsburgh House" the next time you visit "The Burgh"! "The Pittsburgh House" is an Experience...Not to be missed"
Bob & Sheila purchased this House in 1980
Why Bob & Sheila chose Emsworth
Since Sheila and I are retired owners of an advertising/marketing firm in Pittsburgh, we sought, in our retirement, a more sedentary lifestyle and decided to restore a century old Prairie School Bungalow on what is left of the Mogen David Wine Vineyard in Western NY, open an Art Gallery, and convert our family house into a world class showroom for the Eclectic Art Gallery as well as a short stay house rental in Pittsburgh... This is our American Dream!
What makes this House unique
The Pittsburgh House and private compound is close to the hustle and bustle of Downtown Pittsburgh contrasted by the privacy of the compound's green space full of trees, shrubs, and hedges, yet situated on Ohio River Boulevard, a convenient and direct artery to downtown Pittsburgh...It is the best of both the urban and suburban lifestyles.
