Sold!  $3.44 million!  ABSOLUTE AUCTION!!!

Located just south of Pittsburgh in Peters Township, Pennsylvania, this stunning 19,000 square foot home is equipped with everything you may need for entertaining, recreation and family enjoyment. Designed by noted architect Joseph Indovina, Walnut Hill was designed with inspiration from the Main Line stone mansions in Philadelphia, with its stone walls and steeply pitched roofs.


The sprawling home consists of six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and is expertly and intentionally designed to hold over 100 guests for entertaining with its open floor plan. Wanting the property to maintain a homey feel despite its grandeur, Walnut Hill has a more manageable family space that functions as a private and autonomous residence within the body of the larger home. Consisting of the breakfast room, media room, playroom, exercise room and an upstairs master suite, the two levels are connected by a private, back stairway.


While the entertaining space itself provides plenty of inspiration for conversation, Walnut Hill has several indoor recreation options to entertain family and friends as well. The most noticeable is the three-story pool room, located just off the dining room and kitchen with large glass walls to blur the line between indoor and outdoor space. The 45-foot lap pool, spa and waterfall are comfortable and convenient with dual changing rooms and a commercial dehumidification system.


A bedroom wing and a maid’s quarters are located above the six-car garage, where you can choose to have it opened up for guests or closed off to maintain a more cozy, familial home. The kitchen, which has large glass windows that overlook the pool room, features Sub Zero appliances and connects to a rear solarium.


The sunken living room features marble flooring and accents of Delaware Valley sandstone and Indiana limestone, set with a focal point of a two-sided fireplace made of hand-carved limestone. Down a spiral staircase, you enter an entertaining space that consists of a family room and game room with tiled mahogany ceiling and a mahogany bar for six. Spend time indoors perfecting your golf game with a custom, three-hole putting green.


When you do venture outside the spectacular home, the property’s 22 acres provides plenty of additional recreation and entertainment. Begin with the 10-stall horse stable, which has a passive convection cooling system in the stable hayloft above, and enjoy the property’s gorgeous scenery through the Japanese garden. The 19th-century caretakers residents and gentle hills, always expertly maintained, make this residence perfect for an equestrian enthusiast, while its ample indoor space is ideal for entertaining.
