Marbury is an exception. The entire neighborhood is contemporary and the tree cover is impressive. The Parkway East sits above some of the backyards but you really cannot tell that the interstate is there.

This house in munhall is impressive but out of place considering its neighbors.

Yeah, to me with contemporary there is fine line between nice and a dated 70's look. I like the mix of materials not just the design. All wood doesnt do it for me.

Love those homes. Would love to live there, but so expensive. What school district?

2409 Marbury would be Woodland Hills, it sold back late 2016 for 400k.

Ah the school district might keep me out depending on mileage which usually gets super high in troubled districts. Love that plan though.

Woodland Hills school district. My friend sent her daughter to Ellis and my coworker is an empty nester that upgraded from the Graham Woods section of Wilkinsburg. There aren't too many children on the street I've noticed.

I wonder if the owner passed away. He loved the home and loved showing. He rarely left and was always ready for a conversation. This probably explains the missing art sculptures.

Well getting the itch again. Sure is a tough find. This one is pretty crazy, but I don't want to live in the South Hills.

gg - thought you might like this one:

And of course, this is really amazing, though it's a bit more of a museum piece and in another stratosphere in terms of price. I think an astronaut / CMU professor currently owns it:
