3679 Churchview: Baldwin
Built in 1949 on what we’re sure is the sunniest spot in all of Baldwin, this three-bedroom ranch offers prospective buyers the feel of a rural, uninhabited woodland — and the practical benefits of friendly neighbors, central AC, and a (roughly) 7-mile commute to Downtown Pittsburgh. Beyond maximum privacy, 2011 Hampton‘s 9,000-square-foot lot features a broad backyard, designated space for gardening, and a convenient driveway-garage combo. It’s a little more “glamping” than it is “roughing it in the wilderness;” but even with its modern amenities, this place will make any serious outdoor enthusiast feel at home. (Especially with the added security of a brand new roof and a 10-year labor warranty.)
Even the house’s recently remodeled interior bears a rustic authenticity: Original oak flooring has been refinished in the living room, and the kitchen’s solid wooden cabinetry ideally complements new stainless appliances. Neutral, earthy tones are prominent in the master bath, from the tub’s fresh tiling to the vanity’s miniature sliding barn door. We love that two of three bedrooms have retained their original hardwood — but it’s the panoramic window in the hindmost bedroom that brings this country-style gem full circle.
