Wickliff Street townhomes: Three’s company
OPEN HOUSE / PUBLIC REVEAL:
Friday, April 20
Lawrenceville did not become the East End’s it-girl overnight. The neighborhood’s residential and commercial redevelopments began years ago; and while progress has been gradual (particularly in Upper Lawrenceville, the slowest of three subdivisions to adapt), it’s been significant. Independent storefronts are plentiful and eclectic, if not quick to change; the architecture of historical row homes and larger commercial properties continues to undergo largely modern upgrades; and national media has eaten all of it up.
If walls could talk, Lawrenceville’s wouldn’t agree on anything. Still, opinions aside, numbers have proven that homeowners are buying here — and staying here. Our advice? If you’ve ever seriously considering purchasing a home in Lawrenceville, especially within the last three to five years, it’s time to strike. This real estate market is full of energy, and with a smart investment strategy (and the right realtor), buying now nearly guarantees financial benefit in later years.
That said…we recommend starting in Upper Lawrenceville. Not only because we’ve just listed three stellar townhomes on Wickliff Street — but because this part of the neighborhood is simply a low-key, less trafficked, more (physically and emotionally) available version of its Central and Lower siblings.
Did we digress again? (Truly sorry if you only came here for house pics.) Back to Wickliff Street: If you’ve strolled through in the past few years, you’ve seen this building; though until recently, it’s been in development by Pittsburgh’s Urban Capital Group. Presently on the active market, the move-in ready property consists of three individual townhomes (three bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths in each), all of which have been approved for a 10-year LERTA tax abatement.
Quartz countertops, subway tile, bamboo flooring, and stainless appliances are only a sample of the aesthetic perks offered at 5224, 5224-1/2, and 5226 Wickliff Street. The units’ layouts are quite similar — but is variation really necessary with floor plans this efficient? Homebuyers can expect modern architecture, oversized bedrooms with plentiful storage space, and — best of all — private rooftop decks boasting views only truly appreciated during summertime.
Plus, as mentioned, Butler Street’s nationally acclaimed establishments are thriving. (And conveniently, about a 10-minute walk from Wickliff.) Don’t sleep on your chance to join this complex and historically pivotal community. Drop us a line with inquiries.
