From tasteful, quaint row homes to opulent stone mansions, Shadyside architecture is a cut above the rest in this part of the world.

Rated the best neighborhood in America for millennials by Niche Magazine, Shadyside is a gem in the landscape of Pittsburgh communities. Slightly above the citywide average household income, this neighborhood boasts world-class shopping and nightlife, and a wide range of dining options from white tablecloth establishments to some of the city’s finest pizzerias.
