If you like Fallingwater you will LOVE this home.
Just a ten minute drive on I-376 East from downtown Pittsburgh, you will find yourself on a beautiful, tree-lined street which ends in a cul-de-sac. Just a short drive past an assortment of homes built predominantly in the 1960s and 1970s, and you will discover this mid-century modern dream, reminiscent of many of Frank Lloyd Wright's finest homes.
This home was the primary residence of its designer and architect, Tasso Katselas- one of Frank Lloyd Wright's best students. Katselas began his professional education in the Engineering and Architectural schools of Carnegie Institute of Technology, now Carnegie Mellon University. He believed that:
" Architecture is life taking creative possession of space. It is a call to share in the world's making -- to enhance what exists by the sheer power of one's presence and activity."
He has received several design awards, and his design for the Pittsburgh International Airport has repeatedly been recognized as the best designed airport in the United States.
This home is a 4-5 Bedroom, 3-1/2 Bath home. It has 3 Fireplaces (one floor to ceiling copper-6 foot wide!) , a 2-car garage, additional parking for up to four cars on a parking pad, without obstructing the driveway. The house is set back from the street and sits on a lightly-wooded lot. A large portion of the lot is surrounded by a privacy fence, gated to the front and the back. Perfect for pets. Two separate, lush courtyards are shaded by a variety of Japanese Maples and other foliage.

A more complete listing of the home's features, room-by-room amenities, and unique construction materials is available at www.homeintheburgh.com. A brand new roof has been installed as of September 2015. No agent solicitations please. Proof of pre-approval required before scheduling a showing.
