I have a thing for older homes. Some people love the glimmering and gleaming white and clean look. Me, I love the history, the richness of woodwork the texture of lives that you know were a part of this home, laughs, tears, love, families.

A long time ago Edgar A Guest wrote a poem called, "Home." The main point was, "It takes a heap of living to make a house a home." I think that's true, and, when possible, I've chosen older homes or apartments. The one I'm in now was built in 1920 or so.

Anyway, enough about me, now onto the home at 115 2nd Street SE in Plainview, Minnesota. UPDATE - "An Offer Has Been Accepted Contingent Upon Sale of Another Property," but you never know...

This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home built in 1900 scratches me where I itch. Listed by Samantha Pyfferoen for under $200,000, it has great-looking woodwork and built-ins in great shape (so many older homes have let their detailing go, but these will impress you.).

If you love older homes, the way they fit, then you'll love this home.

Things that need to be newer, like AC and roofs, are newer. Things that need to be older, like the formal dining room, are older.

Homes Priced To Move

Speaking of great prices for homes, this one is priced less than %600,000 in the Pill Hill area of Rochester, Minnesota.

Pill Hill Home w/Tennis Court And the Pinkest Laundry Room You've Ever Seen

"Tucked into the hillside, the multi-level home has 7 bedrooms, including a main floor master suite and bedroom/office, 3 bathrooms, and a 2 car tuck-under garage. The home features two huge livings areas with fireplaces, including a family room with access to a spacious deck overlooking the tennis court." Plus one super pink laundry room.

At $575,000 it's a steal.
