"Southways" has views of Lake Minnetonka on all sides and extensive tree-shaded lawns. The Norman English house with its Cotswold stone roof was started in 1915 and completed in 1917. The 16th-century well in the entrance court was purchased in Florence from the Strozzi Palace and has the Strozzi family crest engraved on it. On the lakeside is a broad flagstone terrace flanked at each end by square garden plots filled with annuals. On the south side is a sunken allee containing a sundial from Kingston Bridge. The path through low drywalls and wide perennial borders screened by shrubs and tall trees, leads to a secluded circular garden and lily pond.
