A home in what had been Mister Rogers’ neighborhood hit the market for $850,000.
The 3,700-square-foot brick house in Pittsburgh where the children’s TV show star Fred Rogers and his wife Joanne once lived. The New York Post first reported on the listing.
The property at 5381 Northumberland Street is located just outside the Carnegie Mellon University campus; the couple lived there from the late 1950s until 1966.
During that time, Fred Rogers worked as a composer, organist and puppeteer on “The Children’s Corner” on WQED, which would later become a PBS affiliate. His long-running show, “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” aired from 1968 to 2001.
The three-story home was built in 1921, and has five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
Linda Corcoran with Coldwell Banker has the listing.
