When we decided to buy 315 37th Street and restore it, the house was literally falling down. This house was one of the very first places Wylie Holdings looked at way back in the day – and it looked like it hadn’t been touched in all those years. On one site visit someone almost fell through the floor!
Through our renovations, we rebuilt one of the exterior walls brick by brick. We also patched the existing “skylights”, which were really just holes in the roof. Yet, the house maintains a bright and airy feel without all the holes in the walls and roof.
The house now has 3 spacious bedrooms and 2.5 baths. We’ve incorporated the usual Wylie perks like brand new mechanical systems, gorgeous tiles in the bathrooms, glass enclosed showers, granite kitchen counters and stainless steel appliances.
A loft-style master suite on third floor features exposed brick , 3/4” hardwood floors, a California Closets custom walk in closet and views of Downtown Pittsburgh. The bathroom has a dual vanity and enormous glass-enclosed shower complete with with custom stone and glass tile.
The second floor bathroom also features a dual vanity with plenty of counter space and a glass enclosed shower with stone and glass tile. A half bath and laundry are conveniently located right off the kitchen.
The outdoor spaces are just as generously sized as the interior. One of the best backyards we’ve ever seen in Lawrenceville includes a concrete patio and large grass area. The yard is completely fenced in, making it dog friendly, too. On the side of the house you’ll find off-street parking for up to 3 cars.
The exterior has been restored to maintain its historic charm with funky modern touches like galvanized steel siding on the façade, third floor and rear addition.
