Want Minnesota's most expensive home? Be ready to plunk down $24M


If you have an extra $24 million laying around and are looking for a really, really fancy pad in Minnesota, a bargain is waiting for you.

Normally the words "bargain" and "$24 million" don't compute. But that's the selling price of the Pillsbury Mansion in Wayzata, the Minneapolis Luxury Real Estate Blog says.

The blog says the mansion was originally priced at $53.5 million. It's for sale by former Vikings co-owner James Jundt, who has owned the property since 1992. says the mansion, located at 1400 Bracketts Point Rd. in Wayzata, is the most expensive listing in Minnesota. If you're curious about the mortgage payment for the 32,461-square-foot spread, it's $94,306 a month.

Potential mansion-buyers do have other options if the Pillsbury estate is out of their league.

Zillow says the next expensive home available on the Minnesota market is located at 2825 Little Orchard Way in Wayzata. That mansion, which is 17,494-square-feet in size, is going for $11.9 million with a monthly mortgage payment of $46,760.

The Minneapolis Luxury Real Estate Blog's personal favorite on the market is substantially lower in price: like, half-the-price lower.

Located at 1712 Mount Curve Avenue in Minneapolis, the Historic Donaldson Mansion is priced at nearly $5.5 million. The 12,195-square-foot mansion, built in 1906, has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

According to the listing, the owners restored the mansion "back to its former splendor" over the last decade.

If you're looking for more modest digs, upscale Realtors with the Barry Berg Group have listings that range from about $2.5 million to $5.3 million. A featured listing: the $5.3 million, 5,600-square-foot penthouse condo in Wayzata Bay's Harrington House, which "evokes the romance and elegance of seaside Mediterranean villas."
