Great Pittsburgh Neighborhoods: Greenfield

Greenfield HomesGreenfield is the kind of neighborhood that Pittsburgh is known for. Close-knit, working class, bedroom communities that once were considered the “burbs” until the city expanded to meet them. The area, located just south east of the city, still holds true to its roots with a friendly atmosphere and affordable home prices.

Greenfield is a prime location for a home buyer that wants a suburban atmosphere combined with the convenience of city living. Most homes are walking distance, or a bike ride, from Schenely Park, Squirrel Hill and Oakland. Just four miles from downtown, some residents even can watch the 4th of July fireworks right from their front porch.

View from GreenfieldOlder homes dominate the area, with Victorians, American Foursquare and post-WWII homes commonplace. The median sale price in the area is $134,693 (Nov. 2009) and has even seen a 0.2% increase over one year ago.

Greenfield AveA grocery store, several restaurants and a pharmacy are all located in the community and for major shopping; the Waterfront is less than 2 miles away. Recreation is also close by. Schenenly Park offers movies on the lawn in the summer time and Phipps Conservatory is a great tropical getaway during the winter, both just a mile up the hill from Greenfield in Oakland.
