    Thanks CocoaG for sharing this one.

    I guess the style is a cross between Italianate and Greek Revival…maybe? lol

      Yeah, I’d call it transitional.

      You see a fair number of Italianate/ Greek Revival hybrids. Both styles were very popular in the mid 19th century, so it makes sense people would mix elements. I see more Italianate here, especially when you consider the front porch has likely been replaced at least once, as they seldom last more than half a century or so. Shame the photographer cut off the bottom of the newel post.

    Poor old lady. I’m game, but it’s not my part of the country, too bad!

    This is not too far out of Pittsburgh, an easy commute to the city. I’m about an hour away. I think that the price is set a bit high (even with the 3 acres) with all of the mechanicals that need to be done. I hope that someone can takes this back to what it once was!

    To make a decision on this property, a potential buyer should be sure exactly what is meant when the mineral rights don’t convey in the state of Pa.

    I’m working on a 1790’s log cabin about 3 miles from this. I’ll check it out this afternoon. Seems pricey for the area. There was a similar but smaller house in Tenmile, a few miles south, that was around $50,000, and it was livable.

    After his Civil War service as a teenager, James A. Moninger (1848-1930) bought this home and its 90 acre farm at Lone Pine. He bred a fine herd of Merino sheep, their bloodlines noted in period journals. He and wives Rachel Horn and Ellen Yorty raised 8 children here, where later Moninger died and his funeral was held. Son Charles remained in the home, while his other children had moved on to Chicago and Hollywood.

      I thought this home at one time belonged to one of the families that I have researched in my family tree! Most of my people came from Washington County PA, and I have researched them back to 1600s. The Moningers et al, are part of my people (distantly related to me). I just wish I had the money to bring this house back up to it’s former beauty!

    This style is fairly common for the suburban/rural Pittsburgh area for this time period . I’ve always considered them more of a watered down version of the Federal style. You will find these built in the 1880’s and even newer in the PGH area. I can’t see close enough, but I’m wondering if the window pediments on the front are a more recent add-on. It has a great tree in the front yard.

    This house needs love and attention. I hope someone will buy it and renovate.
