A boutique LIFESTYLE

Boutique in size and lifestyle, the Buvinger Building offers four apartments in the heart of Lawrenceville. Live in a residence that blends historic character with thoughtfully upgraded finishes and modern conveniences. 

The neighborhood

The epitome of Pittsburgh's urban revival, Lawrenceville is hip, walkable, historic and offers more than our description can do justice. Grab a juice or smoothie at REED&CO. Have daily coffee at Espresso a Mano. Outfit yourself with vintage clothing from Mello & Sons. Watch a classic flick at the single-screen Row House Cinema or go bowling at the retro Arsenal Bowl across the street. Within one block alone, you'll have the option of dining at Ki Ramen, Condado Tacos, Walter’s Southern Kitchen, The Vandal or the delicious Banh Mi & Ti. Have a pre- or post-dinner cider at Arsenal Cider or a craft beer at Hop Farm Brewing. And more.

THE BUILDING IN CONTEXT

 

4407 Butler Street was built in 1882 for Dr. C.W. Buvinger and his wife. Dr. Buvinger arrived in Lawrenceville after serving as a surgeon in the Civil War, and lived at this property with his family for nearly 30 years while practicing medicine on the ground floor.

 Its façade, one of the most distinctive on Butler Street, retains its original features representing the Classical Revival architectural style including intricate medallions and carved stone archways. Renovations over the years have luckily retained much of the original character of the building including wood doors trim and baseboard, transom windows and an ornate original central staircase.

DESIGN IS IN THE DETAILS

The building has been reconfigured into four apartments and thoughtfully updated with today's urban lifestyle in mind. The residences are being renovated in a way that balances modern finishes and conveniences while retaining the building's authentic charm and character.

What results is a beautiful blend of original woodwork and high ceilings combined with brand new kitchens featuring stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and subway tile backsplashes, fully renovated bathrooms, in-unit laundry, an indoor bike room and brand new heating and cooling systems with Nest thermostats and exposed ductwork.
