"The Village" of Sewickley is a wonderful walking community with tree lined streets and a vibrant downtown, filled with shops and restaurants. It's known for its charming old Victorian homes. Prices are higher here because you are paying for the location. You also have to like older homes, with all their faults, and smaller room sizes.
Just outside the Village, you will find rolling hills, gorgeous estates, and horse country in Aleppo Township and Sewickley Heights. Some of the estates are at least a century old and have been passed through the generations, while others are newer and sit on 5 or more acres of land in Sewickley Heights.
Closer to I-79, while still in the Quaker Valley School District, you will find newer homes and townhouses in Sewickley Hills . Franklin Park is in the North Allegheny School District and features newer developments, with larger homes that often have open floor plans, and more traditional suburban living. No matter where you choose to live in the 15143 zip code, it is just a short commute to downtown Pittsburgh.
