In the heart of the North Hills of Pittsburgh, with easy access to downtown, sits the large community of McCandless Township. Here residents will find a variety of housing options, a renowned school district, a large park system, and major new commercial developments.

Known early in its lifetime as a farming community, McCandless blossomed in 1890 with the discovery of oil in the area and the introduction of an electric railway.

Today McCandless residents enjoy all the benefits of a suburban lifestyle. Although its proximity to highways and turnpikes makes for a quick and easy commute to downtown Pittsburgh, the town is more than just a bedroom community -- it has a personality all its own. No wonder McCandless has been ranked highly among Money magazine’s “Best Places to Live.”

One of the most important draws to the town is North Park -- a 3,000-acre natural wonderland where outdoor enthusiasts enjoy running, walking, fishing, kayaking, and canoeing all within the wooded confines of this public treasure.

McCandless has also undergone a major commercial boom, with new restaurants, hotels, and cinemas springing up all over, giving residents the opportunity to get all their needs met without having to roam very far.

McCandless features a wide array of home styles and prices. Even the ages of the homes here range broadly, from mid-century to new construction. From older bungalows and cottages to newly built luxury homes with every amenity, there is much to be explored in this township.

So, if you can appreciate the appeal of commercial amenities, or you're looking for an area with top-notch schools, or even if you're simply smitten by the allure of a premier regional park nearby, then come check out McCandless. Perhaps your next home is waiting for you here.
