Adjacent to the Carnegie Mellon campus, the Squirrel Hill neighborhood is extremely residential with many homeowners, but there are dozens of great rental options as well. It’s a highly desireable Pittsburgh neighborhood — Murray Avenue is lined with some of the city’s best restaurants, and Forbes Avenue some of the best shops and boutiques — so rent doesn’t come cheap. But it’s more than worth it to live in this charming neighborhood. Check out these beautiful Squirrel Hill apartments.
These apartments in a refurbished carriage house have kept a ton of historic charm while being modern and luxurious. The open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling windows let in ample natural light and the kitchen has granite counters and new appliances. In the bedrooms, there is so much storage built into the unique architecture that you won’t need to bring much more than a bed.
On the north end of Squirrel Hill, these apartments are just minutes away from Walnut Street, a main hub for dining and entertainment, Chatham University, and Carnegie Mellon. A variety of floorplans means you’ll find what you’re looking for, and water, heat, and electric are included. Although not a luxury experience, these Squirrel Hill apartments offer a great location at an affordable price.
Don’t let the basic exterior fool you — the interior of these apartments are unique and up-to-date with recent appliances and tile and wood flooring. The pet-friendly two-bedrooms are within walking distance of Whole Foods, shopping, and several of Pittsburgh’s renowned universities. Parking is also available on-site, but likely won’t even need a car in this highly walkable neighborhood.
Along the southern end of Squirrel Hill, the pet-friendly Walnut on the Park apartments are just steps from the scenic 400-acre Schenley Park. It’s a slightly less walkable portion of Squirrel Hill, but it’s still only minutes to either Carnegie Mellon or the University of Pittsburgh, and you can easily walk for shopping, dining, and more. Plus, the proximity to the park means easy access for taking your pup on its nighttime stroll.
