Timberhill Road, Estate of the Day
The Wall Street Journal's Private Properties column reported earlier this week that Jeffrey M. Lipton, the former chief executive of Nova Chemicals, has listed his Pittsburgh-area house for $7.75 million. Lipton's home is in the pricey suburb of Sewickley Heights. He tells the Journal that he spent around $6 million to build the home and buy the land in 2002. He is moving his family to Scottsdale, Arizona.
The six-bedroom home is roughly 13,000 square feet and is on 11 wooded acres. The home has a terrace, pool, five-car garage and vegetable gardens. It's a beautiful, modern family home with plenty of light and room and a far more gracious interior than the blocky exterior might suggest. The open floor plan and high wood ceiling make the home seem both spacious and warm. A large stone fireplace serves as a divider between living and dining areas and the kitchen is open to the rest of the space. The sunroom has another stone fireplace and does the media room which also includes a wet bar.
