Real Estate Monday: Squirrel Hill

Happy Real Estate Monday. Most of the time I try to stay within a "reasonable" budget, but reasonable is relative, really. Today I'm highlighting a dream home for me. I LOVE the style of this Spanish-looking home, and while, yes, it needs some love, the end result could be A-mazing. So someone please buy this, and let me help you renovate it, ok? Good.
Here's 135 Westland Dr. Squirrel Hill, Pa 15217  a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom villa listed for $640,000.
I believe this is overlooking the back and side of the house. 
The foyer. Look at that awesome stairwell and Spanish tile. I'd rip off the orange carpet on the stairs and either refinish the wood (if in good shape) or paint the stairs a shocking black and white. 

The living room. 
Hang on, let me wipe the drool from my lip. Just kidding. But seriously, wide-plank wooden floors, 20 ft beamed-arched ceilings, a fireplace, and French doors that open onto this luxurious patio. 
Look at that cute Juliet balcony. 


Here's where the renovating starts happening. I'd do something like this with the kitchen (inspiration photos from Domaine Home). 


 I'd be sure to incorporate lots of Spanish tile in the backsplash, and chevron laid wood floors are always fun.

Isn't this the coolest doorway/window you've ever seen? 

How about a hand-carved bar off your entry way? 

Now I kind of like this bathroom, but I'd totally seek to update it a little. Maybe replace the wall paper with something like in this photo


There's lots more pics on the zillow website I listed. As always, if you're in the market for a new house, give me a call, I'd be happy to help you look. Have a wonderful Monday.

  1. My apartment was bought up by this group about a year and a half ago. Since then all the pending repairs on the building have have been completed. The dove mountain real estate guys are definitely making this place better.

  2. Before purchasing a property, guarantee you walk around the home two or three times. This will help you to genuinely make sense of it. Nowadays, in light of the web and 'virtual visits', people are lured to make an offer, essentially by what they see on a land intermediary's website. This is a noteworthy mistake, as you simply get the chance to see the positive parts of the home. Condosbay.ca
