The Overlook House is sited on a unique and challenging parcel, with the home’s footprint carved right into the mountainside. Designed to be a nested, modern cabin with earth tones, natural stonework and dark wood overhangs, the house takes advantage of its high perch with panoramic views and exterior terraces on all three levels.
You enter the home either through the lower-level garage or the existing stone walls near the main entryway on level two, which then opens to the main living areas and panoramic views of the city. Upstairs are the owner’s suite and additional bedrooms, as well as the top-level gym and roof deck. Taken together, it’s the ultimate forever home.
The owners were also able to add land around the lot to the property’s footprint, where they created walking trails, installed outdoor artwork and built a hillside viewing deck. These unique additions make the property feel like an enchanted woodland retreat with incredible urban views.
It really is a special home, and we can’t wait to start sharing photos of its construction progress. If you’re searching for new homes in Pittsburgh or someone to help you with Pittsburgh custom home design, reach out to Cipriani Studios today for a private consultation about your project idea.
