3009 Cobden: South Side Slopes
Here’s the thing about the South Side Slopes. The neighborhood isn’t nearly as bustling as its sister, the Flats, which is known for its rampant bars, restaurants, and shops. (Both ‘hoods are aptly named for their geography, FYI.) But the primarily residential Slopes offer myriad perks of their own: ample and affordable housing, a relatively calmer ambiance, and, oftentimes, outrageous views of Pittsburgh — like the ones accessible from 3009 Cobden Street’s rear deck. Now on the market, this two-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath home is yours for the taking. And it offers more than just a wildly photogenic backyard.
We’ll let the photos speak for themselves, but we’ve also rounded up a few aesthetically and functionally pleasing features you’re bound to appreciate: wooden floors and mantels, exposed brick fireplaces, stainless appliances, fresh bedroom carpeting, and a finished basement complete with its own bathroom. It’s no secret we’ve got a thing for lil’ blue houses…and this darling is no exception. Make it yours ASAP and soak up that scenery while it’s still colorful.
