My colleague, Dave Phelps, had a story in today's paper about the latest legal and financial challenges facing Curt Carlson Nelson, the grandson of Carlson Co. founder, Curt Carlson, and the son of one of the weathiest women in the state. Nelson recently listed his Minnetonka house with Patti Jo Hermann, a real estate veteran in the western suburbs. She's with Edina Realty.
Some details about the house: It's tucked into the woods behind a set of gates nearly in the shadows of the Carlson Towers in Minnetonka and was built in 1992. It has nearly 10,000 square feet including four bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two kitchens and a home theater. It's on five acres with a tennis court and swimming pool. At $5.45 million, Hermann said that the house had been rebuilt in 2004 with the latest technology. Taxes on the spread are almost $42,000 a year.
