[Single Family + Lot] Old Coal Hollow Road — Penn Hills, 15235 For Sale

  • $72,500
  • 3 beds
  • 1 baths
  • 1,171 sqft

One-Owner 1955-built Raised Ranch sits high up off the Penn Hills/Verona main veins (Coal Hollow@Frankstown).

ONE sweet elderly owner, 1-level property; privately set 3-BR of around 1,200 sq.Ft. Comes with lots of family love & parking. Has a long driveway. A huge bonus for this property is that it can also be accessed from Frankstown Road (to pull into even more parking in the rear). Needs updates. Not much else.

**They are paving Old Coal Hollow as of this week! Looks great.

Owner had it built in 1954. Now is at the age to sell. Bittersweet, but an enjoyable, highly central house with privacy and instant equity. If you’re familiar with that short road, you might know the proud neighborly vibe there, yet with all being nicely spaced out. Outdoor spaces aplenty.

Adj. lot comes WITH. Total lot area right under 1/5-acre. Taxes quite low at ~$1,100 (incs. both parcels)!

Kitchen actually rental-sufficient. Bath is clean & works, is just dated! Bath is clean & works, is just dated! It’s essentially a functioning prop that can use handywork, some updates & landscaping, and a hot water tank that also has:

  • Decks
  • Walk-out basement
  • Roof that’s tight (zoom in on photos if you like)
  • Landscaping with some pretty foliage
  • Central heat (has quite the nice furnace; can’t really stop a Trane®!)
  • “Be in the middle of everything ‘Penn Hills’”

  1. Do the patching/paint, flooring, tighten it up, market it as a P. Hills Oasis, and CAP it out at roughly 17%.
  2. To resell, direct (same-street) comps hitting for $160k avg. (130k, 150k, 163k, 199k in past year); here are 2: 991 OCH Road (next door) $130k  ||  1060 OCH Road $199k 

Good opp on this one as the property’s not really old enough to have become completely destroyed like some of our Pgh.-area finest.
