The lovely little shanty on the Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis where Hubert Joly, Executive Chairman of Best Buy, used to live is on the market right now.

Our ongoing coronavirus pandemic might be wreaking havoc on Minnesota's economy, but SOME people apparently still have money-- or, are going to, anyway-- after the home of former Best Buy CEO, Hubert Joly, sells.

That's because this, uh, 'shack', shall we say, is on the market right now... and it can be yours for just $2.85 million. Hey, it's under $3 million, so it's pretty much a bargain, right?

To be fair, it DOES look like quite the place. According to this Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal story, the mansion is located on the Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis. (Which is located in the swanky Kenwood neighborhood, mind you.) The home is a little over 5,300 square feet and was built in 1916. Joly bought it for that same price, $2.85 million, back in 2008.

In addition to stunning views of the lake (of course), here are some other features you might like, according to the story:

The upper level includes mahogany floors and a library that has custom silk tassels at the crown molding. One of the home's three bedrooms features velvet walls, while Brazilian green marble covers the bathroom. The owner's suite has a gas fireplace, automated closet doors and a sunroom with limestone floors.

And, don't forget about the automated blinds and lighting controls that create the perfect moving-watching experience in the lower level family room! Lindsay Bacigalupo of the Minneapolis realty firm Engel & Volkers has the full listing HERE.
