4014 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15224
Sitting astride two of Pittsburghs most sought after neighborhoods, Bloomfield and Lawrenceville, 4014 Liberty Avenue provides a subtle luxury and simple elegance that is felt as much as it is seen throughout the more than 2,000 square feet of this European inspired home. Carefully restored and thoughtfully redesigned by local architects, Cullen & Associates, clean lines and quality materials result in a stunning dwelling to call home. Upon entering, light dances across the solid oak, wide plank floors sourced from Foglie dOro. Contemporary, gas-fueled fireballs complement the original brick fireplace while full sightlines offer sweeping views of the main levels inviting living space. The original brick, exposed and beautifully restored, offers a stunning backdrop for the custom and imported finishes throughout. Century old beams from the original garage now form the treads for the stairs on the main level. Adjoining the gorgeous treads is a custom-designed metalwork that is as much a work of art as it is a functional structure. Modern entertaining and Italian design coalesce in the breathtaking kitchen. Dramatic and gorgeously veined Iranian marble crowns Tabula cabinetry imported from Italy with solid wood construction, clean lines, and embedded LED lighting. Black stainless KitchenAid appliances complement the deep charcoal of the counters. Open to the dining area, an additional prep sink and wine fridge provide entertaining ease while a solid oak slab set atop the counter in the Italian way create a rich and welcoming bar. Beyond the kitchen is a convenient powder room followed by a generously appointed laundry and mudroom. High design and attention to detail continue through these spaces, evident in the Pivato doors and trim. Fabricated and pref-finished in Italy they grace every doorway throughout the home. Soss invisible hinges, a magnetic latch, and gasket close transform even the simple act of opening a door into an experience to savor. Continuing through the main level and out the rear door is an abundant deck perched atop the two-car garage with views of both the Bloomfield Street Bridge and the Pittsburgh skyline. Upstairs, each of the three bedrooms enjoy private en suite baths complete with European style floating vanities, glass-enclosed showers, and high-efficiency commodes. The elegant master suite includes an entry hall and private balcony overlooking the Avenue. A brick fireplace complemented by the wide plank hardwoods create a warmth and sense of intimacy within the space. The master bath boasts double vanities with quartz counters and Italian porcelain tile. A soaker tub offers a haven of relaxation in which to unwind while one may also enjoy the sensation of a rain shower to begin the day.
