Steep Back Staircases

"I always thought the back staircase in my old house was the coolest thing. While the front staircase was both wide and formal, the back 'servants' staircase' was steep and dark, leading right into the kitchen. There was nothing like being able to run up one staircase and down another during a childhood game of hide-and-seek."
