The only older building (Scheibler's own cottage at 7405 Washington Street, Swissvale, built in 1897) was demolished and is now the site of a gas station.
This more-conventional 5-bedroom home was built in 1901 for a Swissvale grocer, Edward A. Kitzmiller.
From the outside, the lone Scheibler detail (art class windows which you would have seen in the very corner of the second story, in this photo) have been replaced.
However, the inside reveals the Scheibler touch. Writes Gretchen McKay from a 2002 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article, which you can find here:
"The interior, conversely, is not so traditional, reflecting Scheibler's fondness for quaint, Old World details. Carved wooden cornices adorn the tops of the first-floor windows, and built-in window seats overlook both the front and back yards. One corner of the 16-by-13-foot dining room holds a built-in china closet and a decorative wooden mantel adds warmth and charm. The fireplace in the 13-by-14-foot living room is crafted from stone. There is also a built-in bench with storage underneath in the 12-by-5-foot entryway."
Porter and I crossed the street to get a better shot of this house, only to discover that there isn't much sidewalk over there. Whoopsie! Nothing like putting yourself in danger for a good blog.
This house was up for sale in 2002. The asking price was $75,000.
