Monterey Street Renovation Wins Top Prize

Renovation on Monterey
Before and After

The transformation of an abandoned candy factory into a single-family home earned Allegheny City Central residents Dan Wintermantel and Leslie Vincen top honors in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s 2014 Renovation Inspiration Contest in the large residential category (more than $50,000).

Wintermantel and Vincen saved the historic facade of the 8,000 square foot condemned structure.  They removed the spaces they didn’t need and then created a contemporary three-story home. A highlight of the property is the rooftop deck that offers a 360 degree view of the City of Pittsburgh.

The story of the couple’s renovation was featured in the April 18, 2014 edition of the  Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  You can read the story and watch the video here.

The house, located on Monterey Street, will be open to the public during the Mexican War Streets House Tour in September 2014.
