Overview

About the property

Architect custom designed. 4 bedrooms, 4 bath lakefront home in natural setting

Welcome! This Long Lake property is perfectly designed for intimate family gatherings or small corporate retreats. Large inviting spaces and smaller nooks coexist and invite conversation, interaction or quiet contemplation. Dramatic water views from most every room enhance the experience.

Over an acre of land provides a private setting with an "up-north" woods feeling minutes from Minneapolis and the airport.

On the main floor, a gourmet kitchen and large dining/living area overlook the lake. Adjoining this area, a covered deck provides smooth transition to the outdoors.

Downstairs is a bar, poker room, entertainment room, a small exercise area with a rowing machine, and a fully screened porch and open patio. Upstairs, a rooftop deck 'tops' it off with whole lake views and additional seating/gathering areas.

Outside, strategically placed boulders, woods, perennial beds and enticing walking paths extend the ambiance. 210 feet of prime lakeshore serve as a private entrance to Long Lake, a quiet and protected body of water frequented by fisherman, water-skiers and nature lovers.

The changing seasons provide an interesting backdrop to the house, with colorful leaves and late blooming flowers in fall, snow-covered trees and ice-covered lake in winter, early blossoms and the arrival of migrating birds in spring and the wide open waters of Long Lake in view all summer.

Outdoor activities range from snow-shoeing and cross country skiing to biking on nearby Luce Line trail to swimming and boating in season. But most of all, this is a home and property meant for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Outside spaces are set up for rain or shine and ideally elevated to avoid bugs and optimize your lakeshore experience. A fire pit in the trees offers opportunities for secluded campfires and late night storytelling.

Kayaks are available for your use. Power boats and watercraft can be rented from a near-by marina in Delano, Minnesota. Long Lake Rowing Club is just 'down the lake.'

The small private beach is sandy and ideal for swimmers. There is a wading area with a soft bottom. The wading area extends for several yards with a gentle slope before the water becomes deeper.

The property is a few blocks from the bike path and within a mile from small and charming 'downtown' Long Lake. The more developed business area of Wayzata is within biking distance as well, and more extensive shopping and amenities are easily found within 5 miles.

Wood Rill Scientific and Nature Area, about a 10 minute walk from the house, provides walking paths throughout the year.

Lake Minnetonka is less than 3 miles away. Long Lake provides a quieter alternative. This home is situated in a tranquil area. Out of respect for our human and animal neighbors, loud music and noisy gatherings are not able to be accommodated. There is an extra fee for small gatherings up to 25 people total (including occupants).

The property can provide parking for up to 5 vehicles. There is no street parking available.
