A lavish home on Detroit Lake billed as “one of the finest lakefront estates in all of Minnesota” is on the market for nearly $11 million.
Eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom residence on nearly 15-acres of land features over 330 feet of lakeshore.
According to listing agent Peter Prudden, late real estate developer and businessman Ace Brandt owned the property and reportedly invested over $30 million into the lake home.
Brandt, who died in 2021 of brain cancer, was president and board chairman of Brandt Holdings, a Fargo-based company that operates businesses in real estate, agriculture, and industrial equipment, according to Agweek.
“He employed one of the top architects in the Midwest, Michael Abraham based in Chicago, to design a private sanctuary that would balance modern design, while staying true to a northern cabin experience,” Prudden told Bring Me The News.
The modern-cabin estate features a 7,564-square-foot main residence, a 2,670-square-foot guest home and a 5,494-square-foot out-building featuring two private apartments, according to the listing.
“The main house is very functional, with great natural light and an organic flow,” Prudden said, adding there is no wasted space despite being a large-scale compound. “Having multiple buildings that serve different purposes creates synergy.”
