About this listing
Completely private room and bath in the historic Mexican War Streets of Pittsburgh within walking distance to downtown, PNC Park, Heinz Field, the Mattress Factory, the Warhol, the convention center, and many restaurants and theaters between.
I have a private bedroom and bath available. The room features an antique desk, a new full bed, and a private porch with a comfy couch overlooking a beautiful yard. There is an off street parking spot for guests. The room also has a radio alarm clock, a hair dryer, an iron, and an ironing board.
The Crazy Mocha coffee house is a short walk away. This neighborhood was laid out during the Mexican American War, and thus features some really old and beautiful townhomes. My house was built in 1890.
The Allegheny Commons Park is a short walk away--great for running or just relaxing by the pond. Beyond the park (a 15 minute walk) are PNC Park, home of the Pirates, and Heinz Field, home of the Pitt Panthers and the Steelers. Downtown is about five minutes beyond.
Other attractions include the Mattress Factory Museum (right around the corner), the Byham Theater (in the park), the Andy Warhol Museum (down by the stadiums), the Children's Museum (in the park), and the National Aviary (in the park).
There is easy access to buses on Federal Street (50 yards away) and North Ave. The 54 bus is a 30 minute ride to the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.
See 'House Manual' after you book.
All I really ask is that you don't do any serious or lasting damage. No smoking inside.
The house has a free private gravel parking pad in the back. Guests should park in the back and arrive at the back door on the porch.
I have two kitties and while they shouldn't be in your room sometimes they hide under the bed and then shoot out the door. Please don't let them out! Let me know if they do get out and I'll gather them from whatever mischief they're in.
