Charming Victorian Homes

One of the most attractive aspects of living in Shadyside is the gorgeous Victorian homes that line the neighborhood. We recognized the beauty early on and decided it was our obligation to maintain the character and charm of these homes.

Over the years, we selected and carefully restored buildings of historical value. We paired contemporary interiors like high ceilings, fireplaces, and hardwood floors all while preserving the original characteristics of the home.

One of our most treasured Victorian homes is located at 260 Shady Ave. This brilliantly structured home was built-in 1864 by the Hasting Family! Read more on all of our Victorian homes on Shady Ave!
