I love visiting my family in Pittsburgh, but I am not a city person. This house offers the best of both worlds. It is in the middle of everything, yet it is completely hidden and private. The house is built into a hill, and the road leading to it is a bit tricky. However, once you get acquainted with the location, it is easy to navigate. Do not get me wrong, there are other houses up and down the street (and on the hill above and below you), but the way the house is situated, it is very difficult to see any houses or people (especially when seated on the back patio area). The house is very rustic, yet it has all the modern conveniences you will need. The wifi is exceptional, and the TV has all the channels you could want. Because of the privacy and seclusion of the location, it is almost surprising to step outside and hear the "noises" of the city. You completely forget you are in Pittsburgh! However, I never heard any noise when inside the house. I completely and thoroughly enjoyed my time in this house while visiting Pittsburgh, and I will be staying here on all future visits! You will never find this amount of privacy and seclusion in the middle of the Pittsburgh Metro area.
