Midcentury Modern Meets Minnesota Big Woods

A secluded home on the third fairway of the Wayzata Country Club brings nature and modern architecture together in understated sophistication.

This midcentury modern stunner is a Minnesota original through and through. Originally built in 1960 and then redesigned with thoughtful enhancements by the award-winning architectural firm of Meyer, Scherer, and Rockcastle, this home is one of a kind. Coldwell Banker agent Meredith Howell says, “This house lives so much larger than the square footage indicates.”  Howell attributes this to the extraordinary setting the property sits upon. Secluded on a 2.2-acre lot, this home is tucked into one of the few remaining stands of 150 acres of Minnesota Big Woods. On the south side, the property is on the third fairway of the Wayzata Country Club. 
This unique and rare setting allows the natural beauty of the outside to become part of the experience inside. Howell notes, “It has an understated sophistication and many areas of this property are simply ideal for gatherings large or small.” Impeccable design situated in a postcard-worthy setting; 519 Ferndale North is an oasis with views to enjoy year-round.
