$3.5 Million Castle in Pittsburgh

Continuing on with another of the top 20 most expensive houses currently listed in Allegheny County. Here is 724 Bristlecone Drive!

This house wins for most bedrooms of all current listings in Allegheny County. It’s listed as a 12 bedroom, 6 full bathroom, 4 half bath and has 23,247 square feet! It’s for sale for $3.5 million right now.

It’s on 6.8 acres in Pine Township and it’s actually two separate buildings connected by an underground tunnel and a bridge.

I kept some of the agent descriptions at the bottom of the pictures. ha
So here is the $150,000 fireplace.
The bottom right picture here is the custom build kid’s play house.
Theatre room with pillars.
There’s a chapel!
There’s a TV studio which the agent digitally staged into a Pittsburgh themed basketball court.
I’m wondering why they have 12 bedrooms but only a table for 4 people in the formal dining room.
One of the kitchens.
The salt water pool! Pretty amazing.

I’m pretty surprised that this house is only $3.5 million. I wonder how much the construction was. This house went contingent once and then came back on the market. I’ll be curious to see what the final sale price is once it sells. What do you think?

Most Expensive Listing in Pittsburgh

I haven’t posted here in a long time! I have about 5 posts started and none finished. Our home renovations are on hold for the moment so nothing new to report there. Real estate transactions are starting to pick up since the holidays are over. I’m seeing a lot of new listings coming onto the market.

Since I don’t feel like finishing any of the informative posts that I start and then ignore, I thought it would be fun to see the most expensive real estate currently on the market in Allegheny County. Here are the top 20 most expensive listings active right now:

What does $7 million dollars buy you in Pittsburgh?? 550 Market Street. Downtown Pittsburgh. 11,000 square feet! That’s my house x 5. 5 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms + 2 half baths. Annual real estate taxes are $167,668! No big deal. If you’d like to buy this house, I am a real estate agent :):) I’ll help you then be done working for the year.

You get a giant closet that’s bigger than my bedroom. (1 of 2 dressing rooms)
You get 2 sets of built in bunk beds. Because if you can afford this house, your kids are clearly sharing a bedroom.
Mirrored wainscoting. Or maybe that’s a bar?
Very fancy steps
A toilet with its own glass doored room

And here’s the kitchen which I’m not really into. What do you think??

Maybe I’ll continue on with another one of these houses for the next post. I want to check out that 12 bedroom in Pine Twp. Then I should do cheapest listing in Pittsburgh 🙂
