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.
