Why we have a crush on this property

Something magical happens when a home seamlessly blends the antique and the contemporary. This 1920 Victorian for sale in Pittsburgh is proof of that: its leaded transom windows, brick fireplaces, stained glass, and period built-ins only add to—not subtract from—its more modern comforts.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the kitchen. The updated space features a slate backsplash, a stainless steel gas range with a hood, butcher block countertops, and glass-fronted cabinets. The focal point of the room, however, is the glass-enclosed sunroom the kitchen opens to. The sunny spot overlooks a leafy little backyard garden, though it also makes an ideal spot for raising houseplants in an in-home greenhouse.

Beyond the kitchen, gleaming hardwoods can be found throughout the home. There’s a large owner’s suite on the second floor with its own reading room, as well as a home office with built-in cabinets and a wood-burning fireplace. The third floor could be transformed into a guest suite or apartment, as it has a den, two bedrooms, and a full bath. Updated bathrooms, plus laundry in the basement, are added bonuses.

Outside, the Victorian exudes curb appeal, thanks to a roomy covered porch with a swing, as well as bay windows and a period door. Around back, there’s a stone patio, a garden, and a small potting shed, not to mention a one-car garage. The charming property is listed for $489,900 by Nexthome PPM Realty.
