I bought my home almost a year ago.

I have had several people (including contractors) try to figure out where the attic in my home is - and I've come to the conclusion there is no inside entrance to the attic.

I know it has one because the roof peaks and also there are two vents.

I had one guy tell me some old homes had outside entrance only attics. This house was built in 1925.

Is this possible? If so, is there a way to create an entrance to the attic inside? Is it even worth doing?

I don't think the attic is tall enough to become a 2nd story type of deal - though that would be awesome if possible. Since noone has been in it, I'm not even sure what is in there (I may not want to know LOL)!

Could be a former owner did not use it & sealed it off

Might be a good idea to cut a small acces hole in a closet
Then you can go up & verify where you can put one
My last house didn't have 30" clearance at the peak, let alone where the pull down door was
