When this estate first went up for sale for an astronomical $53.5 million in 2007
many wondered if it would sell. Two years have passed and now Southways, a Minnesota mansion on Lake Minnetonka will be sold at auction. The 32,400-square-foot-main house was designed in 1916-1918 by Harrie T. Lindberg and was used by the Pillsbury family until the early 1990s. On December 9, Sheldon Good & Company
will offer the home for sale in a sealed bid auction. The 13 acre estate can be purchased in its entirety or as separate waterfront sites (five different parcels). The estate includes seven structures including a caretaker's cottage/greenhouse, garage, pool complex, smoke room and tea house. How much it will sells for is anyone's guess but I'd speculate it will be under half of the original asking price.
[Thanks, Spectacular Bid!]
