It's not often you find a beautiful Victorian-style home (from 1890) with Pepsi everywhere, but this Plainview home (about 30 miles East of Rochester, Minnesota) has that and then...more Pepsi!

What Is a Maids Stair and Why Is It In Plainview?

Jonathan Espy - Infinity Real Estate

A maid's stairway (or staircase) is the stairway servants would take to get to and from their private living space. They weren't supposed to use the home's main stairway because then you could see them and their comings and goings and that just wouldn't do, Bertrand, it just wouldn't do.

For under $500k, you get 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 3/4 baths, amazing hardwood, built-ins, and the character you expect from such a classic home. Plus small-town life close to, but not TOO close to, Rochester.
