House for Sale

winton.jpgLooking for a property in Pittsburgh, PA? We’re selling our lovely 1920s Mt. Washington bungalow on Winton Street. I adore this house, but know we’ll likely never move back to Pittsburgh, so it’s time to sell.

Brick and wood frame. 1470 sq ft. 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, walk-in closet, finished attic, antique gas fireplace, privacy fenced back yard, full basement. First floor interior was redesigned by local architect to create an airy, open greatroom with wood floors and views straight through to the back.

New shingle roof in 1996; new gas furnace in 1996; new bath unit in 2004.

Very convenient commute to downtown. The house is within walking distance of South Hills Junction (T and busway) and the local bus stop is only 2 blocks away. There is a grocery store, restaurants and other useful amenities a short walk away. Easy access to supermarkets and shopping malls by car.

All the assessment details are available at the Allegheny County website.

For a tour or more information, please contact Collyer Realty, 308 Boggs Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15211 (412) 431-0500

I’ve passed this information on to Clothilde and she’s miffed. Apparently, she’d always planned on moving back to Winton St. I gave her some 4PM treats and she seemed happier.

I can vouch that it’s a very nice place. I’d buy it if I lived in Pgh, and then I’d make the street wider :)

I wish I had better photos of the house, but they are all in storage. This one really doesn’t do it any favors.

It’s not so exciting on the outside, (though it has charms; I spent hours sitting on the deep front porch) but the interior is delightful—bright, sunny and open. I love the original wood framed windows on the first floor.

If only I could transplant the place to Japan! But I cannot, so I hope to find someone who will love it as much as I did.

Man, with UltraGirl and I looking at building a house here in Japan, the prices quoted for that house seem so very nice. *walks away depressed*

It must be hard to let go of a house you love so much, I hope you can find someone who will do it justice!

I was trying to remain in denial that you were never moving back!
