To me, the amazing thing is that this home, up the hill from Bamber Valley Elementary School, has only had one owner since it was built in 1959.

This original owner home opens up to long views from the walls of windows and full length balcony. The expansive, private hilltop lot of nearly 3 acres... (FOR FULL LISTING CLICK HERE)

For $895,000, you get five bedrooms, three total baths, 2 full baths, over 3,500 square feet on almost three acres in Southwest Rochester, MN.

All that's great, but as you look through the photos, notice the view out the windows, notice the amount of sunlight coming in, and the layout that's not really an open concept, but for its time, and the way the walls are rarely full walls, it certainly seems quite open.

Feast your eyes on what I call "that look we all have seen in movies and TV shows from or set in the late 50's, early 60's."  A long name, to be sure. I love it.

Private 1960 Hilltop Rochester Minnesota Home Has Hidden Pool

Designed by Ellerbe and Company in 1959, this home isn't "a step back in time", but it is a step into the image you have about 1950's/60's homes from TV shows and movies. 

Plus, its super private, just up the hill from Bamber Valley Elementary. Most of the homes in that area are a marvel to see (take a walk up there sometimes, I think you'd really like it. Lots of trees and homes set way back). 

Enjoy this home at 2410 Hillside Lane SW in Rochester. It could be yours for just under $900,000.

Jessica Williams Finds 5 Empty Lots in Rochester Minnesota Where the 2nd Chick-fil-A Could Be Built

5 places in Rochester where a 2nd Chick-fil-A restaurant should be built

If a miracle happened and Rochester, Minnesota had a second Chick-fil-A location added, where should it go? We've got a lot of empty lots in town but here are a few that seem to be perfect locations for a 2nd Chick-fil-A!

I have zero idea on zoning for these locations or if anything else is planned. We are just dreaming today of where we could eat more chicken and waffle fries.
