Best Monroeville Houses for Rent

Posted · Add Comment

Pittsburgh is a beautiful city in the confluence of three scenic rivers: the Ohio, the Allegheny, and the Monongahela. There are hundreds of tech firms in the area, leading to a breadth of job opportunities in the field, as well as a host of educational opportunities, such as the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon. There’s the sprawling and picturesque Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and all of the culture that yinzers can muster. But living in a city with such opportunity also means paying a high price for rent, and space comes at a premium.

That’s why many homeowners and renters alike choose to live in suburbs like Monroeville. Just 13 miles east of downtown Pittsburgh, Monroeville is a cozy small city of just under 30,000 that gives you more square footage for your dollar. If you’re a renter looking to escape the city for a breathing room, check out these Monroeville houses for rent.

505 10th Street

This quaint home would be a perfect fit for any young professional or student renter. It boasts three bedrooms, a washer-dryer set in the finished basement, and an enormous fenced-in backyard just waiting for your pup to run around in (this home is cat-friendly, too). The living room has a decorative fireplace and you’ll find unique architectural touches are throughout, such as an arched entry to the shower and stone-pattern walls above the fireplace.

618 8th Street

This large three-bedroom home welcomes dogs and has a quirky interior that would delight tenants who love their home to have personality — such as a roomful of paneling and mauve tiles in the bathroom. A spacious balcony overlooks the street, but for some outside privacy, it also comes with a grassy backyard.

323 Shady Ridge Drive

Technically part of a row of townhomes, this recently remodeled three-bedroom unit will give you all the privacy of a full home rental, plus a host of perks not found in your typical house. The bedrooms, with walk-in closets, are upstairs; the main level holds a living room, dining room, fireplace, and full bath with jacuzzi-style tub; and the lower level has a finished basement with a den and laundry room — washer and dryer included. In the back, find a large balcony overlooking trees and a grassy field.

742 Heartwood Road

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this home is large enough to accommodate a roommate or a family. You (and your pets) will admire the large fenced-in backyard, and the attached garage and in-home laundry add to your convenience. The kitchen was recently redone with granite countertops, new backsplash tile, and stainless steel countertops. Plus, you’re just steps from Glenwood Park and the Cottonwood Sunnyfield Site.

109 Mac Arthur Drive

With a floorplan of just over  1,000 square feet, this quiet home has three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. Surrounded by woodland areas, observable from the back porch, this home is a great choice for nature-seekers, but it’s still nearby malls, restaurants, and more. The exterior might look a bit dated, but the interior has fresh flooring, newly painted walls, an expansive finished basement area, and updated bathroom and kitchen fixtures.
