With a location worthy of its design, 121 Ninth Street, sits atop the nationally prestigious Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts School.
The 2,900 square foot penthouse, (Including decks) was designed in 2006 by supporters of the arts community who went on a worldwide search for the most unusual and one-of-a-kind materials to showcase in the multi-level space. Access to the unit is gained from street level through a private entrance or the private underground garage with three parking spaces. Both lead to the private elevator.
Inside, multi-level panoramic views of the Allegheny River down to the Point, parts of Downtown, PNC Park and the North Shore await. Evening sunsets are an ever-changing panorama. The first-level features an open floor plan with walls painted in subtle shades of gold, bronze and green with a Venetian plaster effect. The color palette is echoed in other spaces including the kitchen cabinetry, Brazilian marble counters and a custom chandelier in the dining area. The large, contiguous space measures 35 by 32 and sits atop flooring of 24 inch slate tiles with warm undertones. The kitchen appliance package features, Jenn-Air, Fisher & Paykel, Commercial Hood and Miele.
Walls of windows and glass doors open to the outdoor rooftop deck and there is a private guest suite and powder room on the first floor.
A custom art piece by Peter Michael Lambert of Red Star Ironworks that began its life in the Mattress Factory's international exhibit "Gestures" was reworked and expanded to become a floating staircase. French Limestone treads are offset and welcome the homeowner to the second floor suite.
There, the open floor plan features another wall of windows and a 24 by 30 master suite. Long, glass walls provide unobstructed views of the city. Nearby, custom closets and office round out the private space while diagonally, an open master bath has 400 square feet of space including a multi-person shower. Murals by Thommy Conroy entitled "Leda and the Swan" embellish the walks and the entire floor features radiant floor heat.
Airspace above the lower rooftops are built into the deed so the view will never be obstructed. Qualified buyers will be welcomed by appointment.
