WHY WE LOVE IT: A neighborhood as walkable as it is scenic, Manchester serves as an all-encompassing gateway to Pittsburgh’s public transportation and roadways. Tree-lined parks lead to the front steps of 1005 Allegheny, one of our most dramatic North Side flips to date. Inspired by a combination of Modern American and Victorian design elements, this single family home boasts pocketed doors, wood flooring, original banisters, and — our favorite part — a slate tile hearth fireplace in the living room. In the gourmet kitchen, we opted for traditional maple cabinets and granite countertops to give the space a bright, welcoming feel. Upstairs, a walk-in, two-person shower keeps things interesting — particularly when paired with an extravagant, 100% original black marble fireplace.
