Highcroft Estate Wayzata

The Highcroft Estate was one of the most significant and special places in Wayzata's history. The carriage house that has survived is a dutch colonial carriage house, and appears similar to a barn type structure. The carriage house is one of the structures that made up the vast Peavey Heffelfinger estate which was commonly known as Highcroft.  The main house and it's accessory structures were likely built in about 1895, which was build by and for Frank H. Peavey.

The main house was a Neo-Georgian 30 room estate, it was situated on 111 acres, in the Highcroft and Ferndale Road area we know today. The original estate was designed by William Channing Whitney, a prominent architect in Minneapolis who designed many prominent homes and estates including the Governor's Mansion. He also designed the Northrup House which is in the same area as the Highcroft neighborhood.

Frank Peavey's daughter Louise married Frank Totton Heffelfinger at the time the home was being completed, around Halloween, 1895. It was the highlight of the Wayzata social scene that year, and Frank and Louise later inherited the estate from her father. There was a large cattle barn as the Heffelfingers kept dairy cows on the south end of the estate.  Prized automobiles were kept in the carriage house adjacent to the dairy barn. Heffelfinger owned a Franklin which was one of the first of it's kind in town at the time, as well as a Peerless.

In 1953 when Louise had passed away and Frank was elderly the estate was sold to other Ferndale residents who subdivided the estate into 2 acre plots and demolished the main structures. It has become known as the Highcroft / Peavey neighborhood we know today. The carriage house is the lone surviving structure from the original estate.

Son Toten Hefelfinger was a Trustee of the Blake School, one of the founders of the Hazeltine Golf Course in Chaska, and Presdient of the US Golf Association. Many thanks to the Wayzata Heritage Preservation Board for the information. Stay tuned for more info on Wayzata Real Estate
