What do you get for $15.8 million?

Everything, if this sumptuous mansion on the shores of Lake Minnetonka is anything to go buy.

The Bella Vista estate on Northome Road in Deephaven just hit the market, instantly becoming the most expensive home for sale in Minnesota.

The John Kraemer & Sons-designed home didn't exist 10 years ago, when the empty lot was bought for $3.5 million in 2008.

Now the 18,007 square foot palace can be yours for just shy of $16 million.
