Mount Washington Pittsburgh Real Estate

Named after George Washington, who surveyed the area back in the 18th century, Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington is a blend of historic charm, urban sophistication and wonderful green spaces.  Possibly its most well-known feature is its two historic tension railways, the Monongahela and Duquesne Inclines, which connect the neighborhood to both the central business district and the Carson Street business district.  Mount Washington is surrounded by the neighborhoods of Allentown, Beechview, Beltzhoover, Duquesne Heights and West End.

Mount Washington’s convenient location south of Downtown Pittsburgh living, its excellent quality of life and its unbeatable panoramas make it one of the most sought-after places to live in Steel City.  The eclectic mix of available Mount Washington Pittsburgh real estate also makes the neighborhood more than attractive.  From historic homes to streamlined modern residences and townhomes with gardens, there are enough options here for anyone.

Apart from its postcard-perfect view – the nighttime version of which was voted the second most beautiful view in America by USA Weekend magazine – Mount Washington has a host of other unique features.  These include the Grand View Scenic Byway and its 280-acre park, the vibrant Shiloh Street business district, and Grandview Avenue with its upscale shops and restaurants.
