Restored Italianate with City Views

528 Hemlock St, Pittsburgh, PA 15212
$375,000

Description

Great views of the City/ Fenced yard with parking pad/ The house at 528 Hemlock Street has seven rooms on three floors (1,884 square feet)/ First floor/ Living room, dining room, and kitchen with rear deck.   Second floor Bathroom/dressing room, common room, and bedroom with rear porch.   Third floor Bedroom; potential for addition of a master bath onto the roof of the second floor.

I finished the restoration of this house in 2001, with new windows, plumbing, wiring, and HVAC. All the Inselbric asphalt siding was removed and the German clapboard was restored or milled new to match the old. The window and door hoods are from a demolished house on Thropp Way (a nearby alley), or milled new to match the design. I had all the interior wood work and doors stripped, sanded, and polyurethaned. The floors were all sanded and polyurethaned. I took apart all the door mechanisms, cleaned them, wire-brushed and oiled the parts, and re-assembled them. The hinges, door knobs, and back plates were all stripped and refinished. The kitchen and bath have wainscoting from the demolished house on Thropp Way. The cabinets in those rooms were made from the wainscoting. The gutters and downspouts were replaced with copper which lasts a lifetime and does not need painting. The slate on the Mansard roof is reclaimed from another demolition. Two of the mantles are carved with hemp leaves. The other two mantles are slate, one with its original marblizing, the other stripped down to the slate. I looked at a hundred bevelled-glass windows before I found one the exact size and compatible style for the transom window over the living room picture window. The glue-chip glass in the front door was from the kitchen door. The front door is the original vestibule door. The front door on the house when I bought it was from the 1950s. The fenced side yard has a parking pad. The house was built in two stages. The front room on three floors was built in 1898, an addition to the original one-storey house from the 1860s. The back two rooms on two floors were built in 1903, replacing the original house.

I am asking $375,000 but I will consider offers from appreciative preservationists.
