Description

Set on an unprecedented 1.8-acre lot and surrounded by five acres of lush, protected parkland, the Baywood Mansion will make anyone feel like royalty. A revitalized portion of the former Alexander King Estate, this iconic, sophisticated home is truly a piece of art that has been lovingly restored to its era, with a focus on quality throughout and superior attention to detail. The owners spared no expense in returning the exquisitely detailed rooms to their original elegance, and the result is a museum-quality residence worthy of hosting grand occasions or displaying the most distinguished art collection. The Baywood Mansion is one of the most distinctive, influential properties in all of Highland Park, a Pittsburgh neighborhood prized for its proximity to local eateries and fine dining options, as well as the large central park of the same name, which is complete with numerous walking trails, two lakes, lots of green space, the Pittsburgh Zoo and the PPG Aquarium. A treasured family home for generations and the former site of the Pittsburgh Art Museum, this beautiful residence is the embodiment of Second Empire Victorian architecture and design, and its current, impeccable condition is reflective of the passion of the owners, who endeavored to preserve the home as a part of history. One of the most historic homes in Pittsburgh, the Baywood Mansion offers the best of many possible worlds. Beyond the walls, the home has been extensively renovated and modernized. Features include a newer electrical system, new plumbing, and air conditioning, a new boiler, and new appliances, including a 24,000-watt backup generator. The porch and roof of the exterior have also been repainted, and the entire home is surge-protected. For those who value properties of historical significance and love classic period details, such as hardwood floors, high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows, yet who are averse to the risks, time, and expense involved with performing renovations, this is the ultimate opportunity.
