Former Pillsbury House
The former John S. Pillsbury Sr. house on the tip of Bracketts Point in Orono on Lake Minnetonka is for sale. Over two years architect, Harrie T. Lindeberg, designed & built this 32,000 square foot estate for John and his wife, Eleanor. Sitting on 13 acres with 1,700 feet of shoreline on Lake Minnetonka, the estate includes a 10,000 square foot guest house, caretaker’s cottage/greenhouse, smoking room, tea house and beautiful gardens.
The home also features a very large outdoor swimming pool, indoor spa, 12 car garage, 5,000 bottle wine cellar, dock and clay tennis court. In 1991 Eleanor Pillsbury passed away and the estate went up for sale for the first time. James Jundt, a former hedge fund manager, and his wife, Joann, purchased the estate. It underwent a drastic renovation & restoration where the Jundts paid close attention to detail. The estate has passed hands since the Jundt’s renovation and is back up for sale, this time for $24,000,000.
