Property description
Resting high on a hillside nearby the village of Sewickley, this beautiful and secluded estate is the opportunity of a lifetime. Built in 1897 and renovated with meticulous attention to detail, this historic Sewickley Heights property boasts a luxurious, designer-quality interior with approximately 10,000 square feet, a pool, and a six-car garage, set on more than 23 acres of enclosed manicured gardens and pristine, rolling countryside. A unique partially obscured porte-cochère entry and a circular driveway create an instant appeal for this home, which offers classic period details such as cedar shake siding, a slate roof, high ceilings, custom millwork, and moldings. The sunroom is perfect for morning coffee or board games; a handsome library with hardwood paneling, built-in shelving, and a fireplace invites contemplation. Designed for entertaining on a grand scale, the estate features a sophisticated dining room with space for a grand 12-person table, a billiards room, and a spacious formal living room with a fireplace. French doors in many of the rooms provide a seamless transition to an expansive covered porch that wraps around the home. Accented by custom-made, cast iron filigree railings and hardwood floors, the covered porch is a hub of this amazing property. It offers easy access to the private motor court and leads to an impressive former ballroom/second living room that feels like the inside of a ship, as it features soaring vaulted ceilings with exposed oak beams.

Numerous outdoor seating areas on the covered porch showcase peaceful views of the outdoor living rooms, which include a small hedge maze, a bocce court, a reflecting pond, manicured gardens, and a large pool surrounded by expansive stone patios. Ready for any occasion, the spacious open kitchen boasts a center island with counter seating, travertine heated floors, and high-end appliances, including a distinctive gas range that recalls the time, character, and place in which the estate was built.
