    Known as the Piper house, it’s a very rare example of a New England style interconnected house in Minnesota.
    I really hope someone buys this place and gives it the love and attention it deserves!

      Thank you! I looked at this and immediately thought she had confused the location somehow. Heheheh. This house looks like it just flew in from Vermont or Maine. Outstanding!

    1885 Italianate.

    These are the kind of houses that draw me, chipped paint, rough roofs, overgrowth, it’s all good! Love this house, that wallpaper!

    I’m glad this made the cut. It deserves to be shared and saved. Like I mentioned in a previous post this is an hour south of Minneapolis , St Paul.
    If you look at the one kitchen picture of a closet next to a refrigerator that was the original dumb waiter shaft that went to the basement as the kitchen was located there.
    The dumb waiter is intact sitting in the barn.

    I love this one, it could be pretty with some work. I really love that barn behind it also. What does the realtor mean “buyer to assume septic”? Does that mean there is no septic system, that it does/does not work, I don’t get that statement. Nice acreage with it too.

      The septic system is not to code and the sellers are not going to fix it. The buyer will have to assume the responsibility of repairing or installing a new system. There’s also the option of hooking up to the city water and sewer.

    Is that an industrial soap dispenser in the bathroom? I don’t see any other signs of this being used for a business.
