WEXFORD, is really a postal address covering homes in Pine Township, McCandless Township, and Franklin Park. The 15090 zip code crosses over the boundaries of two great school districts in Pittsburgh's northern suburbs -- Pine-Richland and North Allegheny -- with students in Pine Township going to Pine-Richland, and McCandless and Franklin Park attending North Allegheny.
Real estate within the North Allegheny School District boundaries tends to sell very quickly, and hold its value, because the school district is consistently ranked as one of the very best in the region. Most of the homes in McCandless and parts of Franklin Park were built in the late 1900's or early 2000's and more moderately priced than what you will find in Pine Township. One of the biggest attractions is that they are in established neighborhoods with beautiful tree lined streets and plenty of character.
Pine Township has experienced rapid growth, especially in higher-end homes, as development moves out from the city. Treesdale Country Club is one of the main attractions with a large development around the golf course offering a country club lifestyle to those who chose live there and can take advantage of golfing, tennis, swimming, a clubhouse and community events. The commute times to downtown Pittsburgh are longer from Pine Township, yet vibrant new shopping centers, including the Pine Plaza, make it easy to pick up groceries, grab a bite to eat, or get a manicure.
