This all-brick, four-story estate at 414 West North Avenue is located across from West Park and Lake Elizabeth in the heart of the Mexican War Streets. Prominently positioned on a lovely tree-lined street with sidewalks, the Manhattan-style residence has great curbside appeal and is magnificent throughout.
The sellers, Neill Stouffer of Neill C. Stouffer Fine Interiors and his husband Bruce Harshman, owner of Salon La Te Da and Spa, have lovingly and meticulously refurbished the residence to perfection.
Here you can enjoy gracious living and entertain guests in grand splendor. The house is loaded with ambiance and charm and replete with five bedrooms, five and one-half baths and eight gas log fireplaces.
The historic estate was formerly home to the Wickersham School of Music and the front door still bears the gold-leaf insignia of the school, WSM.
The gated entry with formal garden leads to a covered front porch. Enter the grand foyer then take in the parlor, the music room, the spacious dining room, and the chic modern kitchen. Throughout, decadent chandeliers—from Waterford to Jacques Garcia Baker to Schonbeck Dorchester—adorn the home.
The all-wood floors and staircases are refurbished throughout. Other updates include new windows, architectural façade lighting and remodeled bathrooms. There’s even a caterer’s kitchen in the basement if the buyers opt for a bed and breakfast business.
The house is just minutes to Downtown Pittsburgh and The Cultural District as well as universities, medical centers and hospitals. Enjoy great restaurants and boutiques in the Mexican War Streets and North Side and the 80-acre park with lake across the street.
The house is listed by Re/MAX Select Realty on WPML MLS#1248686. For more information contact Maggie Jayson,
