The Wayzata house of former Alliant Techsystems Inc. CEO Daniel Murphy Jr. has sold for $6.05 million, the highest-priced sale of a single family home on a single lot in the Twin Cities in five years, the Business Journal reports.
The 8,700-square-foot home on Gray's Bay on Lake Minnetonka was listed by Sotheby's International.
Features: four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, a billiards room, screen room, five-car garage, four fireplaces, and 178 feet of frontage on the lake.
In a deal last year, two wealthy Twin Citians – real estate mogul Ralph Burnet and Cargill Inc. heir Donald McMillan – swapped dream houses. That sale involved an even bigger sale than the Wayzata deal, a $9.1 million home, but it involved multiple lots.
