Active, 35 Days on Market

Do you dream of driving down a sandy road to find a piece of ''Old Florida'' you thought had all but disappeared? Are you looking for an authentic beach cottage with an historic past on a tributary of the Intracoastal and just steps from the ocean? If so, look no further. The approach starts at the stacked coquina block pillars: the driveway to what was once the summer residence of one of the scions of the famed Mellon family. Originally attached to the Mellon house as a wing, the cottage was moved to its current location in 1981. Lovingly restored by its current owner, there are large, sun-drenched rooms, high ceilings & classic vintage features perfect for casual get-togethers & sophisticated soirees. There are original heart pine floors throughout....(Please click MORE to continue).The fireplace is a gorgeous feature in the living room area with a large custom marble hearth & brass details. The mantel was created from massive heart pine timbers that were once beams in the orig. Laundry Building in Pinehurst, NC, in the early 1900's. A newly renovated Master Bath has been updated with both contemporary & antique elements. Modern sconces over a vintage pedestal sink are the perfect counterpoint to a restored claw foot tub originally from Henry Flagler's Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augustine. The multi-tiered decks wrapping around two sides of the cottage are the perfect place to catch a sunset, watch the dappled waves of the Matanzas River inlet, enjoy the ocean breezes and let your cares slip away. This beautifully maintained retreat is a rare & unique piece of "old Florida" history complemented by thoughtful updates, making it the perfect place for the next generation seeking a "one of a kind" home.
