A beautiful 3-Bedroom single-family house with a country-side like living in the very heart of Pittsburgh Metro, located in Green Tree Borough: Available for rent . The house is a 5 minute-walk from a bus stop to downtown, which is only 7-8 minutes by bus or car; The house is also within 10 to 15 minutes of Universities in Oakland, airport, several malls, shopping centers/plazas and hospitals, as well as many other points of attraction in Pittsburgh Metro. Parking is Off-Street on the driveway with enough room for at least 3 vehicles. This is a 1 1/2-story Cape-Cod house with a full-size and a very clean basement, has hardwood floors all over and is furnished with a whole-house ventilator that cools the house within minutes with the flick of a switch after a hot day by pulling cooler outside air in from open windows and exhausting it through the attic/roof. Entrance floor consists of a Living Room with a Bedroom furnished with a closet, a Dining room, conveniently adjacent to the Kitchen, and a Powder room (one half-bathroom) and a coat/jacket closet. The kitchen has an electric range, two ovens, a new refrigerator and a new dishwasher; it has enough room for a small kitchen table with 3 to 4 chairs. Kitchen opens to a balcony overlooking a lovely, deep backyard which provides a great haven for a peaceful, country-side like living. Just check out the pictures for proof. Upstairs has 2 Bedrooms, each furnished with spacious walk-in closets, a Full Bathroom, and a surprisingly spacious linen closet positioned conveniently between the bedrooms and right across from the bathroom. Total living space is 1410 sq. ft. The basement is full-size, tiled wall to wall, and brightly illuminated by natural light coming in through glass-block windows on three sides of the house. The basement contains the central heating/cooling unit, hot water heater, a set of washer and dryer, and a deep freezer. Basement door opens to a storage area (for lawnmower, gardening tools, etc.) under the kitchen balcony, which in turn opens to the backyard. A quiet and very safe neighborhood and is ideal for a family of 1-2 young children looking for a great elementary school (Green Tree's F.L. Aiken Elementary is one of the best in Western PA and typically ranked a top 10 to 30 school in the entire PA). Monthly rent is $1,195. Tenant pays all the utilities (total for gas, electric & water average about $220 per month). If interested please e-mail me your request of interest with general personal/family and financial ability information such as your current employment, spouse employment, family size, financial ability and current interest in renting a house in the Green Tree/Pittsburgh metro area. I will get back with you as soon as I can and will make an arrangement for you to see the house at a mutually agreed upon time. If, upon seeing the house, a prospective candidate would like to go ahead and formally apply to rent the house, he or she will fill out a rental application form. A non-refundable application/credit check fee of $25 will be required to run a background/credit check without which a contract will not be signed. Also, a security deposit equal to one month's rent shall be required before a One (1)-Year Lease will be made at the time of signing. No shorter than one year lease will be signed.
