This modern mansion offers plenty of high architectural drama as well as a setting worthy of a dramatic slice of cinema. Sitting on 7.5 acres near Pittsburgh and on the market for $2.9 million, the estate played a starring role in the movie “Love and Other Drugs.”
According to the listing, the estate has been featured in magazines and is “considered by many to be the finest in town.” Built in 1995 and located in Fox Chapel, PA, the home is surprisingly warm despite its minimalist aesthetic.
The exterior is appropriately grand with two overlapping walls ranging in height from 18 to 28 feet high. The privacy these walls afford balances the transparency of the floor-to-ceiling glass walls around the house—letting in natural light without putting residents on full display to the neighborhood.
The 8,000-square-foot home is situated around a reflecting pool, which provides abundant light and serene views to nearly every room.
The master suite features an incredible bathroom with two walk-in showers and a sunken tub. In addition to the five-bedroom main home, there’s a guest cottage and heated stone pool. There’s also a wine cellar and a large room, which is currently decked out as a nursery. Outside there are wooded grounds, plenty of porches and patios, and a gazebo next to a small pond.
The current owners purchased the home in 2014 for $2.6 million. The film was featured in the 2010 film “Love and Other Drugs,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway. The film is set in 1990s Pittsburgh and tells a love story between a successful pharmaceutical sales rep, played by Gyllenhaal, and his strong-willed college sweetheart, played by Hathaway.
Sophisticated, luxurious, and graced with a touch a Hollywood magic, this home is definitely ready for a homeowner looking for something spectacular.
