Hard to say whether Pittsburgh was ready for it, but Etna’s real estate market is on. the. rise. And we’re appropriately psyched to list this dandy on Wilson Street. By now, you just might be attuned to our public displays of affection for any home with an underdog story to tell. You know the type: the unoccupied, overlooked, creaky ol’ space that — thanks to a kind-hearted developer with a good eye — gets a fresh lease on life.
With respect for 91 Wilson Street, we won’t subject you to the vivid tales of its former appearance. But we’re certainly going to share details of its updated one, designed entirely by local development co. Atlas Estates (they’re new in town … sort of).
Let’s start in the open-concept living room and kitchen. Grounded with engineered, hand-scraped hardwood flooring, the rooms merge to create a casual and modern entertainment space. Throughout are two whitewashed fireplaces and many custom wooden fixtures: a live-edge mantel and a barn door by MPI Woodworking, and kitchen shelving courtesy of John Malecki. The kitchen alone sports white quartz countertops, a butcher block, and a waterfall-edged island (designed to sneakily hide barstools). In an adjacent dining room are two doors: one leading to a half bathroom; one that opens to a fenced-in backyard and one-car garage.
You’ll find two bedrooms (one with a massive walk-in closet), a full bath, and a designated laundry spot on the home’s second floor. But if you ask us, the third-floor bedroom is the real deal. A reformed attic space with exposed beams and limitless design potential, it’s the kind of room you’d reserve for your most creative pursuits … and/or your most serious Netflixing.
Either way, ball’s in your court. Want to be one of the first to see one of Etna’s best? Give us a shout; we’ll give you the VIP tour. No bow ties required.
