Shadyside has long been a destination for Pittsburgh area shopping, dining, and nightlife, but recent years have highlighted another neighborhood attraction – the annual Shadyside House Tour. Every September, the Shadyside Action Coalition sponsors this self-guided tour of roughly eight renovated, historic, or architecturally relevant homes, allowing curious visitors to learn about the rehab, styling, and history of the properties along the tour.   This annual home showcase celebrates its 35th year in 2013, clearly demonstrating the local interest in the community and the houses that dot the city blocks from Centre to Fifth and Neville to Penn Avenue. Proceeds raised from ticket sales to the House Tour are dedicated to funding scholarship programs at Winchester Thurston, providing assistance for children to attend the Shadyside Center for the Arts summer camp, as well as other community oriented projects: installing bicycle racks, neighborhood watch signs, and developing information packets for new residents of Shadyside. The House Tour is certainly one of the most interesting and original aspects of this popular Pittsburgh neighborhood as it offers non-residents the opportunity to briefly experience life in Shadyside.


Of course, the House Tour is also open to current residents of the neighborhood, and what better place to live than in Lobos Management’s James Manor. Located along the tour route on Ellsworth Avenue, James Manor offers one and two bedroom apartments with convenient off-street parking on site. Just blocks from the entryway to the building is the bustling business district of Ellsworth Avenue where boutique shops and high end restaurants draw visitors from all over the region. Notable restaurants include the Harris Grill, the Big Burrito Company’s Soba and Umi, and the 1947 Tavern.
