Don’t be fooled by Mount Lebanon’s suburban facade. Seven miles south of Downtown Pittsburgh, the neighborhood’s central business district and diverse communities offer all the perks of city life — but with a slightly more refined edge. Affluent and sophisticated, Mt. Lebo boasts one of the nation’s highest ranked school districts and one of Allegheny County’s most frequented public libraries. On the home front, we won’t kid you: this mount is first-rate. Though dwellings range drastically in size and architecture, the bulk of the lot are well-built and spacious, designed to stand the test of time. Backyards common and families even more so, here’s the ideal setting to set up that white picket fence you’ve always dreamed of. The neighborhood’s active and health-conscious residents take recreation seriously, as evidenced by 200 acres of land spanning 15 parks. And when hunger pangs strike? These folks do it right. Lining main drag Washington Road are myriad chef-inspired eateries, plus charming boutiques, coffee shops, and dessert joints.
