Property description

Hello & welcome to our loft!


We are in the North Side of Pittsburgh, right across the river from Downtown & the Strip District, in an urban neighborhood currently on the rise.
We are within walking distance to many places of interest Pittsburgh has to offer- here are some details (according to popular maps website):
- to Downtown: 1.1 miles/ a 22 minutes walk
- to Heinz Field (the football stadium): 1.44 miles, a 34 minutes walk
- to PNC Park (the baseball field): 1.0 mile; 20 minutes walk
- to Consol Energy Center (the hockey stadium): 1.6 mi; 33 minutes walk
- to Carnegie Science Center: 1.7 miles; a 34 minutes walk
- to Children’s Museum: 0.7 miles, a 15 minutes walk
- to National Aviary: 0.9 miles, an 18 minutes walk
- to Andy Warhol Museum: 0.8 miles, a 17 minutes walk
- to David L. Lawrence Convention Center-1.2 miles/ a 25 mins walk
- to Greyhound Bus Station & Amtrak Train Station: 1.1 miles/ a 22 mins walk
So you see that you can just put on your walking shoes, leave your car safely parked in our private garage and go exploring. The hiking/biking path which leads to the stadiums, Carnegie Science Center & Downtown is part of 3 Rivers Heritage Trail, which goes right along the Allegheny River and offers some of the most beautiful scenic views of the city.
If you need to use public transportation- we are located on major bus lines and the bus stops are approx. 50 yards from the building.
If you prefer using a car we are located a short block away from Interstate I-279 and a block away from PA Rt.28, both of which are major routes leading into & out of the city.

Our loft occupies the ground floor of a post-industrial building and has nice views of the city skyline and surrounding neighborhoods.

The loft has a free-flow layout, with 1 separate bedroom, bathroom, open dine-in kitchen, and a large open living/ dining/ entertaining area
There is a space for 1 car in our secluded 2-car internal parking garage available for guests’ use.
Individually-controlled heat and AC. Free WI-FI internet (FIOS).
All floors are hardwood floors,(oak and bamboo), except for the bathroom.
There is a washer/dryer combination in the loft available for guests’ use, as well as an iron & ironing board. A starter supply of dishwashing soap as well as laundry detergent and dryer sheets is also provided for guests.

Sorry, no pets are allowed in this loft.
Both the loft and the garage are smoke-free zones.

Bedroom has a queen size bed flanked by matching night tables and night lights and a large wardrobe for guests' use.
There is a study/ reading area w/a large desk & a chair.

Shower stall, sink, toilet, storage cabinet.
There is a combo washer/dryer in the bathroom.
Starter supplies of soap, shampoo & conditioner, toothpaste and toilet paper, as well as laundry detergent and dryer sheets are provided.
Towels provided. There’s also a hair dryer for guests’ use.

Kitchen has stainless steel commercial-style cabinets & countertop and is fully equipped with: stove w/electric hood, microwave, toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker, cappuccino maker, electric kettle, blender, and grill/panini press.
Cookware (pots, pans, bakeware, cooking utensils & cutlery), as well as dinnerware, glassware & utensils provided.
Whether you fancy a 3-course dinner, a morning cappuccino or a margerita at sundown- all you’ll need to get- are just the ingredients.
And just in case- we always keep a starter supply of coffee, tea & sugar around.
The kitchen has a small bistro style table w/2 chairs.
There is also a dining area with a table & 4 chairs.
With its window overlooking the scenic panorama of downtown Pittsburgh, and a flat-screen tv it offers quite a dilemma: “What to watch?”
Whichever you choose, the 2 leather chairs and a full-length futon will surely provide a comfortable seating/lounging option.
The futon creates additional sleeping option for 2 people.

We have happily lived in this loft for over 10 years and will gladly share our experience and advice with you. We also try to provide our guests with directions, recommendations, written reviews etc., especially folks from out-of-town, who have never visited Pittsburgh. If you have any questions or need advice please do not hesitate to ask.
And please, make sure to examine all the enclosed photos and read the entire listing, especially the part about house rules, policies etc.-first. So often we are asked to explain details which are already clearly stated and/or shown in photos in the listing.
To ensure a good & trustful relationship we like to learn a little about our guests and the goals and expectations they have for the visit prior to accepting a booking. This also helps us come up with possible recommendations and some custom-tailored advice for your stay.


Hope to see you soon!
