826 N Sheridan: Little bit country…
Not long after bringing this Lawrenceville gem to the market, local developer Steel Town Properties invites homebuyers to get cozy in the heart of Highland Park. Less than a mile from the park (and even closer to neighborhood hub Bryant Street), 826 N Sheridan Avenue feels a little more rural than its city locale lets on. Of course, that might be related to the home’s rustic, countryside-esque interior … or two off-street parking spaces. Or privately fenced yard. If it weren’t for those contrasting contemporary designs or, you know, lack of farm — we’d bet with certainty this place was a farmhouse.
But here it is in metropolitan Pittsburgh, and it’s got the modern perks to prove it: black stainless kitchen appliances, quartz countertops and stacked cabinetry, wet-bar-wine-rack combo, vessel and farmhouse sinks, elegant copper accents. To name a few. Recent replacements include roofing, windows, HVAC, plumbing, and electric — but there’s also a great deal of character here that remains untouched. The first floor’s shiplap, exposed beams, and judges paneling are all original features, for example. The living area’s built-ins were made from joists found on the premises; the master bed’s barn door is a repurposed pocket door; even the exterior’s detailed trim is antique.
As a whole, the building was built to persist and rebuilt to perfection. If you’re the type to appreciate — and we think you might be — that floor-to-ceiling tile and a centuries-old dresser-turned-vanity can co-exist, give us a call. There’s more to this belle than meets the eye.
