A Home History: 5867 Wilkins Avenue

5867 Wilkins Avenue is a stone mansion in the quaint Pittsburgh neighborhood of Squirrel Hill. Built in 1910, it’s no doubt this six-bedroom home has a rich past.

We contracted Carol Peterson to research the home’s history. Read the full report here.

  • Built by Oscar and Anne Babcock in 1910, the home’s construction cost was around $20,000.
  • Oscar’s brother Edward was a mayor of Pittsburgh.
  • The Babcocks employed two servants who lived at the home, and chauffeurs who lived above the garage.
  • The house’s unique design  was influenced by Prairie and Mission styles.
  • After the Civil War, prosperous families moved to Squirrel Hill to escape the crowded, smoky Downtown Pittsburgh region.
  • The home has had a total of six owners.

This home is currently for sale and listed by our broker Mark Jennings. Learn more about 5867 Wilkins on our site.

Sotheby’s International Realty® Comes to Pittsburgh

Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC announced that an affiliate of Millcraft Real Estate Services in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is the newest member of its network and will now operate as Piatt Sotheby’s International Realty.

With over 60 years of experience in the real estate industry, the boutique firm will be led by Lucas Piatt, owner, and Mark Jennings, managing broker.  Piatt Sotheby’s International Realty will serve the luxury residential real estate market in the greater Pittsburgh area.

“In the past decade, Pittsburgh has undergone a cultural and technological renaissance and has a budding culinary and arts scene,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.  “The luxury residential real estate market is also growing as new development properties are being built in downtown Pittsburgh and the surrounding neighborhoods.  We are proud to welcome Piatt Sotheby’s International Realty to our network.”

Piatt’s brokerage firm is deeply committed to innovative projects that have changed the landscape of the Pittsburgh region without compromising the integrity of the environment, and in additional, it is heavily involved with philanthropic initiatives with numerous charitable organizations in the region.

Piatt Sotheby’s International Realty is located at 260 Forbes Ave, Suite 1525, in Pittsburgh.  With this addition, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand now has three independently owned and operated affiliate companies in Pennsylvania; also operating in the state are Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty in Philadelphia and surrounding Bucks County, and Lusk & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty in Lancaster County and south-central Pennsylvania.
