    Description:   Once in a lifetime opportunity! First time this family jewel tucked away in the “old Ferndale neighborhood” has been for sale. Sweeping southerly views of the main lower lake, 140 feet of prime Brown's Bay shoreline. This home exemplifies the “old world charm” of the grand 1930's homes-- exquisite woodwork, beautiful hardwood floors, pocket doors, built-in shelving/display cabinets. Waiting to be restored to its original grandeur--entertainment size rooms, 4 fireplaces, library, large kitchen with informal dining and butler's pantry. Second level features 5 bedrooms, 3 baths including a private master suite with sitting room plus his/her dressing rooms each with vanity. Or build your dream home on the .75 acre lot. There is a one bedroom guest cottage over the 3 car garage and a charming boathouse with screen porch. Minutes to downtown Wayzata, easy access to Hwy 394 and across the street from the Dakota Trail. This is truly a unique opportunity!
