Parts of Shadyside and Fox Chapel would definitely be up there. At one time, there were more mansions along one street in Shadyside than any other street in the country, that MIGHT be still true, I'm not sure.

Sewickley, and Sewickley Heights. I believe there is a five acre minimum in the heights.

Are those homes in the Sewickley area actually multi-million dollar lots, though? I didn't think so, but I could be way wrong. I mean some of them are breathtaking and beautiful but I didn't realize they could be so incredibly expensive, I just thought they were steep. :P

Several of the brand new condo's downtown (built and being built) are also fetching multi-million dollars, if you're interested in something like that. Some well-to-do journalist from NYC bought one of the pent house suites in one of the new converted condo's downtown for a couple million.

I don't know if the lots themselves run in that range, but the homes currently on the market run on up into the $3-4 million range.

Fox Chapel Borough---without a doubt.

I did a wealth comparison of Sewickley, Mt. Lebanon and Fox Chapel.

Fox Chapel has the largest concentration of wealth in the Pittsburgh metropolitian area.

Yeah, but realistically, who could ever afford the Fox Chapel Manors besides people like Teresa Heinz? Why do you ask, anyway, jd027 - plan on buying expensive?

There are probably some that are worth more. Most of the homes up there are well secluded, up on private drives behind iron gates. Mario Lemieux lives in Sewickely, as do a handful of other pro athletes.
