9150 Mellon Court, St Augustine, FL 32080 - This 1.06-acre waterfront property and 5000+sq ft. home embodies the heart of historic Summer Haven. Nestled between A1A and the Atlantic Ocean, this special residence was built in the 1890s as an inn & later expanded by the Mellon family of Pittsburgh to host their many guests. The dwelling now has 6 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, and a massive kitchen. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a magnificent piece of “Old Florida”, located just minutes from the richly historic downtown St. Augustine. The rustic charm of the residence belies its amazing history. The Mellon Hotel was a respite for friends and celebrity guests of the famous family. A private home today, the northern front porch welcomes you and a window filled sunroom to the south provides a relaxing space for your morning coffee. One hundred year old heart pine floors and pecky cypress walls adorn the large gathering room, crowned by a stunning coquina fireplace. The massive kitchen is flanked by a butler’s pantry, a large dining room, a spacious half bath and a full bath just steps from the mud/laundry room. Upstairs, the master suite has stunning views to the east, south & west from its 16 windows, and the cedar-lined walk-in closet is an unexpected delight. Two of the three remaining bedrooms offer ensuite baths and views of the ocean. A library/office is located upstairs on the westside, providing interesting views of the river. A fully functioning guest apartment/ mother-in-law suite is accessible from the upstairs hallway as well as from a private outdoor staircase. The 900 sq ft. riverfront deck and a cascading coquina lawn terrace provide exceptional outdoor living spaces. A detached 5 car garage provides ample storage. This is truly a peaceful, enchanting piece of Old Florida paradise that rarely comes available. Whether you enjoy the home as is or transform it with your family’s loving updates or convert it to an unforgettable bed & breakfast, the possibilities are endless. Make it yours today.
