History of Deephaven Real Estate

Deephaven is made up of clusters of charming, idyllic neighborhoods. Cottagewood and Northome are two peninsulas important to Deephaven’s history that have evolved into beautifully classic neighborhoods. Samuel Gale originally plotted and sold the peninsula of land known as Cottage Wood on Carson’s Bay for $100/acre. Today, Cottagewood real-estate is amongst the most coveted and cherished real estate on Lake Minnetonka. From traditional to modern architecture, every home in this community has been maintained and treasured with pristine detail.

Minnetonka Yacht Club - Lake Minnetonka

On the other side of the bay, Charles Gibson, a native of St. Louis, MO built his family’s dream lake home estate over-looking St. Louis Bay, named after the St. Louis hotel that was also built by Gibson. His grand estate was known as Nort home, and when the area was sold and divided, residents referred to the area as Northome. The Northome neighborhood still welcomes residents with the handsome stone arch bridge. Through the bridge are the stately homes built into the green of the landscape. The estates, barely visible from the road, welcome residents to their wooded retreats.

There are many notable estates within the Deephaven community, with long lines of history. Many of the original homes are still here since the glory days of Lake Minnetonka. The preservation and updates of the homes in respect to the landscape make for timeless beauty. The entire modern Deephaven community benefits from the thoughtful and tasteful preservation of its architecture and rich history.
