From the moment you pass through the palatial gated entrance onto the private drive, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped off a plane and are no longer just minutes from the hustle and noise of Minneapolis. Lush, rolling hills beside meadows rich with wildflowers give way to acres of noble oak tree groves.
The raw and untouched natural beauty of the property is unparalleled, displaying the best that any Midwest landscape has to offer. Beyond the enchanting half mile drive through the canopy of the stately oaks, the meticulously manicured rose gardens emerge; and tucked in quiet opulence, before its own private lake, lies The Edward Anne Estate.
A snapshot in time, the estate exudes old world European luxury. In authentic French Normandy style, at 26,000 square feet and boasting the nation’s only venue with a steam-shingled roof, The Edward Anne Estate is both elegant and majestic. A place where fairytale dreams really do come true.
The stately home boasts the raw earth elements that lend themselves to the more masculine tastes, as well as light, open airy areas with soft details that lean toward the more feminine.
The lower level is entirely exposed rock and natural wood beams. Think of a dapper cigar lounge with dark leather furniture, billiards and swanky bar.
The upper level has soaring ceilings, an abundance of natural light including a private glassed-in garden atrium with views of the property and the lake from every room. The details and finishes are elegant and luxurious. The main level of the home cohesively brings these two styles together into a grand and stately entertainment area.
The name “Edward Anne” is a marriage of masculine and feminine in its own right and is reflective of the estate itself. Just as a marriage between two unique people, this estate gives recognition and celebration to the beauty in each individual’s distinct differences and the harmony and grandeur that is originated once unified.
