An old stone building just outside Pittsburgh with more than 6,400 square feet of space could be a great candidate for conversion into a single-family home.

But it might give you the heebie-jeebies.

Built in 1930, the building on Seventh Street in McKees Rocks, PA, has been a funeral home for decades.

“[The owner] is only doing about one viewing a month at this location, so he decided it was time to sell it,” says the listing agent, Gary Norris, adding that there’s another funeral home nearby.

The first floor functions as the current funeral home space and measures 4,400 square feet. Listing photos show wide-open spaces for mourners to congregate, as well as a glimpse into an area used as a showroom for coffins.


“This property could be used for a lot of different things. The upstairs floor was lived in by the former funeral home owner, so you can live up there—and there’s a patio out back,” Norris says.

But the funeral home isn’t the only selling point of this particular property. A buyer can instantly become a local land baron.

For $495,000, a buyer will acquire a total of four parcels and two parking lots. On those parcels, you’ll find three rental homes, as well as the historic stone building.

As for the nearly century-old funeral home, Norris says, “It’s a beautiful building. You have the slate roof, the stonework. The walls are authentic Italian plaster, and the plasterwork is gorgeous inside.”

There’s also a basement area.
