Minnesota’s most expensive old house listing! Circa 1914. Almost 12 waterfront acres. $13,450,000

January 8, 2023

Welcome to Minnesota’s most expensive old house listing! This home was built in 1914. It is located on 11.87 waterfront acres in Wayzata, Minnesota. I am assuming most of the value is in the land. The interior, with what little pictures they posted, is a bit underwhelming to me. Surprised they didn’t at least fix the dock! There is a caretaker cottage on the property. Six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and 7,635 square feet. $13,450,000

From the Zillow listing:


An incredible opportunity to capture the last great estate site in Wayzata! A winding wooded private drive brings you to a large home overlooking a small quiet bay leading into Lake Minnetonka, with a dock for lake access and recreational enjoyment. Existing 1914 house has large rooms for entertaining, high ceilings and beautiful bluestone patios, gardens, and lawns. Panoramic views of open wetlands stretch to the north, while to the south there are seasonal views of Lake Minnetonka from one of the highest wooded bluffs in Wayzata. Twelve unspoiled acres, all tucked discretely on Wayzata’s most sought-after address. Main house and caretaker cottage sold as is. Subdivision potential.
