For Minnesota Nice Homes we often try to find properties that are unique but not completely unobtainable to some of our readers.
You can forget that for this week's property, because we've picked out this incredible mansion on the shores of Lake Minnetonka that will set you back a cool $14.45 million.
Found in Orono at 3350 Fox Street, this 1920-built palace provides a sprawling 15,000-square feet of impeccably-designed floor space.
An outdoor pool has an adjacent pool house and is surrounded by superbly-manicured gardens that lead down to 700-feet of south-facing shoreline.
Listing agents George Stickney and Cindy Redmond of Coldwell Bankwell Burnet describe the building's design as "timeless ... offering old-world elegance with modern conveniences, breathtaking gardens and extraordinary water views."
While almost 100 years old, current owner Nancy Bigos bought it for $4.65 million in 2010 and three years later embarked on a complete remodeling that has produced the stunning results that can be seen in the gallery above.
Standout features include its "palatial" master-suite, a flawless gourmet kitchen, a spiral staircase and seemingly never-ending amounts of outdoor entertaining space.
George Stickney and Cindy Redmond have the listing. They can be contacted at 952-475-9245.
