A two-bedroom, completely renovated apartment is available as soon as December 1, 2018 in Highland Park. Highland Park has two direct bus lines to central Oakland and the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, Carlow University, and Chatham University. The unit is a spacious 1,400 square feet. The apartment occupies the entire first floor and basement of a mansion turned three-unit apartment building in lovely, quiet Highland Park. The apartment would be ideal for an individual or couple wanting space to make an office or spare bedroom. You are welcome to utilize garden space to grow flowers or vegetables and the apartment has direct access to the back yard and patio. The first floor has high ceilings, original hardwood floors and lots of windows. The lower level is a mix of new hardwood flooring and ceramic tile, with a working gas fireplace and wet bar. Each floor has a full bathroom. The basement has a very large social room and two rooms that could be used a guest bedrooms or storage space. The kitchen/dining room is outfitted with new appliances and Ikea cabinets, including a stainless steel refrigerator, gas oven, and dual-bin sink and dishwasher. The countertops are butcher block and the floor is tiled. The kitchen is perfect for a table with eat-in option. The kitchen has an east-facing window/door that allows for natural light throughout the day. The living room and bedroom are open to interpretation. This space more than any other can be customized to the tenants' own style. The rooms are split with French doors that allow the area to be opened up similar to a loft or closed for privacy. Each room features a fireplace/mantle and large windows. The original hardwood floors were just refinished and are a warm walnut stain. The most attractive element of the bedroom is a triple bay window with a built-in wooden window seat that gives wonderful light and warmth throughout the day. The bed room painted a cheery baby blue. Other elements of the apartment include: whisper-quiet steel ceiling fans in all rooms, huge, covered front porch, attractive backyard and patio, and great landscaping. There is free on-street parking, and there is never a problem finding a space. There is a high efficiency washer and dryer for shared use in the basement. There is also additional storage space in the basement. Bryant Street, with the City's best Thai restaurant and other great dining options, is a five-minute walk, while Tazza D'Oro coffeeshop is an easy three-minute stroll down the hill. The entrance to the Park and its running trails, reservoirs, Pittsburgh Zoo, Olympic-sized pool, tennis courts and picnic facilities are just two blocks away. The street itself is quiet and inhabited mainly by young families. Route 28 is accessible by car in 5 minutes. We live in the house next door and take good care of the property. We like to think we are accessible, friendly landlords. The other two units in the house are occupied by a music professor at Pitt and a residential healthcare professional. Since we will be living next door, it is important to us that the tenant be clean, quiet and respectful. While we are busy and absorbed in our own affairs, it would be wonderful to have friendly tenants who were occasionally interested in sharing a meal or relaxing in the yard. However, there is no pressure to develop a friendship. The price includes all utilities, including wi-fi. No pets, please.
