PITTSBURGH, PA—(Marketwired – Jul 31, 2014) – A home in Peters Township, Pennsylvania sold at an absolute auction conducted by J. P. King Auction Company on July 31, reaching a sales price of over $3.44 million. The home included a three–story, indoor pool and sat on 21 acres.
Of the 21 people who toured the property in the days leading up to the auction, the registered bidders brought opening bids that ranged from $700,000 to $2.5 million. After nearly 20 minutes of bidding, Matthew and Sally DiAngelo of McMurray, Pennsylvania, purchased Walnut Hill and will use the home as their primary residence. They were represented by Century 21 Frontier agent Lisa Browell.
The sale of Walnut Hill adds to the 12 luxury properties J. P. King has previously sold in Pennsylvania, now totaling $40 million in sales.
With six bedroom suites and 10 total bathrooms, Walnut Hill was designed for entertaining with its large, open rooms and indoor recreational activities. The most noticeable of these is the three–story indoor pool with large glass walls. The 45–foot lap pool, spa and waterfall also feature dual changing rooms and a commercial dehumidification system. Combined with a solarium, media center, and game room, along with living quarters that function as an autonomous residence within the larger home, the property transforms to the needs of its owners.
In the home's 21–acre outdoor space, Walnut Hill features a 10–stall horse stable with a passive convection cooling system, a Japanese garden, a walking trail through the property and an abundance of privacy.
