Manchester Great House Sale and Tour
July 23, 2011 @ 12:00 am - July 24, 2011 @ 11:59 pmVaries
The Manchester Great House Sale and Tour is a follow-up event to the previous sale and tour in 2009. Manchester’s Great House Sale & Tour 2009, held Saturday and Sunday, October 17 & 18, 2009, was a marketing and operational success. During the tour 36 people put down deposits to purchase seven renovated properties and nine new construction models at Columbus Square upon completion. The 2011 house sale and tour will build on this success of the 2009 Tour. This year, the event will saturate Pittsburgh and Allegheny County with positive images of Manchester and potentially attract up to 1000 people to the area over the weekend.
The 2011 Sale and Tour will feature both historic rehabilitation and contemporary new construction models. This event celebrates a joint venture between our Citizens Corporation, Fourth River Development, Landmarks Community Capital Corporation, Landmark Design Associates, Mistick Construction, Pittsburgh Urban Redevelopment Authority, United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Allegheny County.
This event features the seven buildings that were sold and renovated following the 2009 Sale and Tour. As a result, some houses came with $60,000 of instant equity many of designs employs a traditional neighborhood design concept, with most of the single-family residences containing a private yard and two-car garage. All Columbus Square residences feature cost-saving “green” energy components and offer floor-plan options suitable to individual owner needs. All of the homes will qualify for a City and County tax abatement program.
Located just minutes from the city’s commercial business district, Manchester has a rich and unique history. This history is evident in both its beautifully-preserved residential architecture and in the delightfully-woven stories of its people from generations past and present. Manchester’s Historic District has been on the National Register Of Historic Places since 1975.
The Manchester Great House Sale & Tour will be your opportunity to be on the ground floor of an amazing investment. Choose from an exciting mix of contemporary new construction and historic rehabilitation.
Tickets purchased during registration will be $35.00. Tickets purchased online before registration are $25.00

Manchester is the gateway community to Pittsburgh’s Northshore. Located just minutes from the city’s commercial business district, Manchester is a community with a rich and unique history. This history, linked to that of Pittsburgh itself, is evident in both its beautifully-preserved residential architecture and in the delightfully-woven stories of its people from generations past, present and future. Recognizing the wealth of magnificently-built, Late Victorian style homes, the Corporation sponsored the designation of [Manchester’s] Manchester Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places and was so granted in 1975.
