Wexford is an unincorporated community located in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, which is part of Pennsylvania, United States.
Wexford is quiet overall, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case near Raymond P Shafer Highway or Pennsylvania Turnpike. It is sometimes hard to get to parks from a lot of locations in the unincorporated community since they are spread out sparsely. Despite that, there are a few green spaces close by for residents to discover.
The median year of construction for properties in Wexford is 1990. Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing most of the dwellings in this unincorporated community, and the rest of the houses are mainly large apartment buildings and townhouses. Around 85% of the dwellings in the unincorporated community are occupied by home owners and 15% are rented. This part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area has a variety of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
High schools and primary schools are not especially numerous in this unincorporated community, and thus not always within walking distance.

Driving is an excellent transportation option in Wexford. Parking is easy. It is inconvenient for people walking to navigate this part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area because very few daily needs can be carried out without the use of a car.
