28120 Boulder Bridge Drive, Excelsior, Minnesota, United States, 55331
An impressive 10,000 square foot Dutch Colonial on a 2.6 acre estate along Minnesota’s Lake Minnetonka has been reduced to $2,995,000. The historic property had previously been on the market as much as $5,750,000. It was built c.1906 for Edwin J. Longyear, inventor of the diamond drill bit for the Mesabi range, and was originally known as Rose Farm. The Longyear family sold the farm in 1926 to G. Nelson Dayton who grew the property into nearly 800 acres with Guemsey cattle, Belgian horses, pigs, sheep and many other farm animals. He renamed the farm to Boulder Bridge after a stone arched bridge on the property. The Dayton family sold the farm in 1951 and over the years several families occupied the home. It was sold again in 1976 to the present owner, who purchased 90 acres of original land and began developing the Boulder Bridge community. This is the first time in over 40 years that the home has been available. Incredibly maintained over the years with much of the original architectural detail and charm still intact, enjoy grand-scale rooms which seamlessly intertwine stately elegance & charm with today’s modern amenities. The gourmet kitchen took first place prize in Food and Wine Magazine. There are 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. The truly spectacular home is on the market for $2,995,000 with John Adams.
