Kind and honest housesitters wanted for Oscar
Hi my name is Annette and my husband Chris and I live here with our two sons...we are Brits living in fabulous Pittsburgh.
Our Home & Location
We live in a beautiful,quiet area of Pittsburgh known as Country Club Gardens ( Chartiers Country Club).Its a fifteen minute drive to Pittsburgh downtown..but its a world away!Our Home is very comfortable ..fully air conditioned and well heated with a beautiful garden.Our deck area is very relaxing especially in the early morning as its east facing....but not in the winter!!.... that’s when our basement is our sanctuary with it’s bar ,bar games,books and enormous tv with sound around comes into its own!We have a wealth of bird life in the garden and resident deer and wild turkeys!( the whole of the garden is protected by invisible fencing so no chance of Oscar disappearing to go and play with the wildlife).
Pittsburgh is an amazing city... City of Champions...great sport..think Steelers,Pitt Panthers,Penguins and Pirates( go bucks)..we love living here.Culturally it’s incredible..the Culture District downtown has Broadway touring theatre,ballet,comedy clubs,opera and many bars ( craft beer and Wigle Whiskey is big here!)and restaurants.We also love the world class museums.If you don’t fancy driving downtown there is a park and ride less than ten minutes away with buses into downtown on a regular basis....
For those who want to explore our beautiful state ..there is so much to do...kayaking,hiking,cycling,Falling water..a must and in the winter skiing at Seven Springs is an hour and a quarter away.I love ice skating downtown and park visiting.
For shoppers we have two discount malls within forty minutes. + More info

Looking after the house ..and grass cutting in the summe
