Description

Old World Charm in Highland Park. 5640 Elgin Street has been in the same family since it was built in 1899. So many of the original features, such as spandrels, carved Newel posts, wood-paneled walls in the foyer, pocket doors, interior window shutters, even the dumb waiter in the kitchen, are still intact. The rooms are large and airy. Stained glass windows and transoms abound. Each of the 8 quarter-sawn oak mantles has its own distinctive carving. The dining room features a built-in wood china cabinet with beveled glass doors. Pantry with floor to ceiling cupboards is adjacent to DR and Kitchen. Huge walk-in cedar closet on the 3rd floor. This house sits on a large corner lot located near the neighborhood's business district and just blocks from Highland Park itself, with its tennis courts, swimming pool, and picnic groves.

    "Everyone in Pittsburgh says their neighborhood is the best. I'd have to argue that Highland Park truly is. The neighborhood is incredibly peaceful and offers a suburban-like feel, all while being a mile away from almost everything you need. There is ample (free!) parking, and it is immediately along 2 buslines, with another 2 within walking distance that can get you to multiple corners of town. There's a wonderful mix of families, young professionals, and older folks. From what I know, the neighborhood is also largely unchanged. There's also a small "business district" with several lovely restaurants, a laundromat, a coffee shop, and even a well stocked small market. Highly walkable, supremely peaceful, and within reach to virtually everything you need, with or without a car. "

    "Highland Park is one of the most livable areas in and around Pittsburgh. Especially in the area nearest the park itself, the best in urban and suburban living are combined: Quiet, treelined streets with well-maintained homes are only minutes away from all the best a sophisticated urban area has to offer."
