Affordable Home



Located in a low-crime neighborhood on a street with lovely older homes is this c.1900 house whose interior looks like it was put into a time capsule in the 1960s. Sculpted carpets that likely cover hardwood floors, lighting fixtures and Woolworth curtains mixed in with 1930’s linoleum and an a beautiful original floor-to-ceiling pantry cupboard haven’t been changed since the Huff family lived here. The property has view of the forested hills, and although it is only three streets from the Allegheny River, the home is reportedly not in a flood zone.
