Newly renovated in July 2016, this artfully-appointed and spacious two bedroom flat is located in one of Pittsburgh's most architecturally rich, historic, and ideally-located neighborhoods.
Within walking distance of restaurants, coffee shops, Heinz Field, PNC Park, downtown, Stage AE, The Warhol Museum, Mattress Factory, Allegheny General Hospital, Point State Park, The National Aviary, and more (all within a 5-10 min walk).
Premium HD cable, WiFi, & Bluetooth speaker included.
Our spacious two-bedroom apartment is located in Allegheny West, on Pittsburgh's Northside.
Officially the smallest neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Allegheny West is home to 19th century architecture characteristic of the gilded industrial era.
Originally named Allegheny City, the neighborhood was considered the gold coast of the region, and stood among the wealthiest in the world before annexation by Pittsburgh in 1907.
Built in the 1870s, our apartment is part of a historic row house district. Many of the original floor beams, as well as exposed brick, were preserved during the renovation.
Ceilings were restored to their 12 foot height throughout the living room and kitchen, while lofted ceilings were constructed in the bedrooms.
The neighborhood is home to a mix of eclectic businesses and historic sites, including a local bookstore, bars, an excellent Thai restaurant, Peppi's legendary cheese steaks ("home of the RoethlisBurger"), the Jones Mansion, and the birthplace of writer and poet Gertrude Stein on Beech Street.
Nearby is Allegheny Commons, a beautiful and peaceful city park. We hope you enjoy the setting as much as we do!
Guest Access: our second floor apartment is accessible through the rear door of the building. Keypad code is provided upon booking for convenient access.
Pittsburgh has been our beloved adopted city for over 10 years. We're happy to provide recommendations for everything from the best dive bars to the city's broader cultural, artistic, and scenic destinations.
The apartment is accessible via keyless code entry, and the code is provided on the day of arrival. We are readily available to answer any questions and address any concerns throughout your stay. Let us know if you need anything!
Free guest parking permit included in rental (for parking on back street, Beech St). Plus, inexpensive metered street parking is available (on Western Ave, the street in front of our building).
Our free parking permit works great for Steelers game day, Pirates games, and stadium events (including concerts). We are located within a short walking distance of Heinz Field, so close that the parking lot across the street is used for fans and charges $45-65 to park on game day, making the free parking parking pass that is included in this rental a huge perk! The permit must be promptly returned after guest stay to receive full deposit.
Getting Around: Our apartment is centrally located within walking distance to bus and light-rail lines, as well as a city-sponsored bike rental station (1 block from our place).
