Sotheby's International Realty - Sewickley, PA

For those who value privacy and a serene, pastoral setting, but want to have the Sewickley Village and downtown Pittsburgh conveniently located nearby, Oak Knoll is the perfect place to call home. Set off a private road in one of the most sought-after areas of Sewickley Heights, this secluded estate offers a completely renovated and modernized cottage, a pole barn and approximately 23.46 acres of land. Steeped in history, the site is the former treasured residence of Thomas McGinley, a corporate mogul and one of Pittsburgh’s favorite sons. He chose the site for its natural beauty and had a sprawling home built along the hillside in 1910, with numerous covered porches included to showcase the beautiful, endless views. Now, Oak Knoll offers a blank canvas in the heart of Hunt Country, ready for a custom luxury estate aligned with the rich architectural heritage of the area. The cottage would be a perfect venue for supervising construction, with its high-end materials and meticulous attention to detail. Highlights include a gourmet kitchen with quartz counters, custom cabinets and stainless steel appliances, as well as wood floors, new windows, and all new heating, plumbing, and electrical systems. The owners’ plans for renovating the main home were sunk by an engineering report showing it was beyond repair, so it was demolished at great expense. With a chance to make your mark on this unique, historic property, easy access to major freeways, shopping and the airport, this estate is an opportunity that should not be missed. Additional information and due diligence available upon request.
