Pittsburgh is a vibrant, multi-cultural jewel in western Pennsylvania with huge offerings in the educational, medical, and technology sectors, a far cry from the gritty, rusting steel town associated with its past. The City of Bridges — so named for having more bridges than any other American city — is also the site of a gorgeous period-restored bed and breakfast for sale.
Located in one of the city’s most upscale residential districts, this amazing Pittsburgh Inn for sale offers guests and owners an amazing experience. Though it only has eight bedrooms, it is immaculately restored and furnished to create a spectacular atmosphere. Along with period furniture, all the rooms have modern amenities including TVs, wireless Internet, and private bathrooms. The surrounding neighborhood is charming and historical – many of the houses were built by the steel, railroad, and banking magnates that made Pittsburgh a boomtown during the Industrial Revolution.
And as much as the Inn itself shines, the area and the city shine even brighter. This B&B for sale is located in the heart of a central residential district, just north of the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. The area gets a great deal of student and parent traffic, giving it a friendly, urban vibe (and also providing a steady stream of business, especially around homecoming and graduations).
Your guests will have access to plenty of big-city amenities without dealing with big-city prices or crowds. The Inn is only a few blocks away from one of the most popular boutique shopping districts in the city. There are a huge number of excellent restaurants nearby, including Pamela’s Diner, a popular local brunch spot; Soba, an upscale Asian-fusion restaurant; and Girasole, a contemporary Italian eatery.
Outside of the immediate area, Pittsburgh offers plenty of other attractions and interesting destinations. A number of parks are within a short drive including the well-known Schenley Park, a 456-acre park in the heart of the city, perfect for families and outdoor-lovers. The park is also home to the Phipps Conservatory, a large multi-environment conservatory featuring flowers and plant life from around the world.
Sports are another big draw to Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh’s famous football and hockey teams, the Steelers and the Penguins, are popular with locals and tourists, and the stadiums are both within easy driving distance of the Inn. Pittsburgh also has a (less-successful) baseball franchise, as well as strong college sports programs from Pitt, CMU, and Duquesne University.
Finally, the Inn is also very close to some of the top medical centers in the country, including the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Hillman Cancer Center. This center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in western Pennsylvania, and it has an excellent reputation. This has made it a popular destination for medical visitors in need of room and board.
Overall, we are proud to represent this Inn and to shine the spotlight on the city that it calls home. To learn more about this or any of our other inns for sale, contact Inn Partners today.
