While the Pillsbury estate on Lake Minnetonka is no more, there's another remnant of the famous flour family in Minneapolis that's very much alive.
The limestone, Tudor-revival mansion at 116 22nd Street East is just across Washburn Fair Oaks park from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, in the Whittier neighborhood.
It holds a place in Minneapolis history, having been built in 1903 by Alfred Pillsbury, the only son of Pillsbury co-founder John S. Pillsbury.
It has stunning architectural features throughout, including a curved, quarter sawn oak staircase, while its lower level is filled with "secret passageways."
Also found on the lower level, among its many standout features, is a 17th Century library imported all the way from England.
This library leads to a room dubbed "The Vault," which it originally was, but has since been transformed into a small party room with an adjoining "Tequila Room."
The Vault also provides access to the property's wine cellar through a pair of disguised entry doors.
The home's 10,600 square feet of floorspace includes six bedrooms, among them a sprawling master bedroom suite that has its own sitting room, full bathroom and a separate dressing room with a sink.
A second bedroom suite, meanwhile, comes with a bathroom and a kitchenette.
Looking for a home within a home? This one's got it on the third level, which has a private guest apartment with a bedroom, full bath, kitchen and living room.
