RISMEDIA, November 13, 2009—The former Pillsbury Estate, Southways in Wayzata, MN near Minneapolis, is one of the most glamorous, sophisticated and dazzling estates in the world, and is up for grabs for only the second time since 1918, offered in a sealed-bid auction by Sheldon Good and Company. Designed by well-known architect Harrie T. Lindberg, Southways is located in the picturesque city of Wayzata, Minnesota, on the shores of historic Lake Minnetonka. The estate is located on 13 acres and was originally owned by John Pillsbury, descendant of the founder of the iconic Pillsbury brand.
Southway’s is Lindberg’s homeage to Old World charm and elegance. The home and surrounding buildings have graceful proportions, created from the finest materials by the most skilled craftsman in the world. The property features seven structures including the main residence, a detached garage, a pool and tennis complex, smoking house, tea house and a caretaker’s cottage with greenhouse. With lavish gardens and sweeping lawns, Southways come complete with a plethora of beautiful, old trees.
The estate is ideally located in close proximity to fine restaurants, world-class yachting, sailing and golf courses. Sheldon Good & Company is offering Southways in its entirety or in five individual 2+ acre parcels. In 1992, the current owners commissioned New York City architect Beyer Blinder Belle (who restored Ellis Island and Grand Central Station), to preserve the original detail of the home, while adding modern amenities throughout.
