ANNA MARIA ISLAND, FL – The lavish Anna Maria Island home of four-time Major League Baseball All Star Mark Melancon – who is currently pitching for the Arizona Diamondbacks – has been listed on the real estate marketplace for nearly $11 million.
Melancon and his wife Mary Catherine originally purchased the empty plot of land where they would construct the home back in 2018 for $1.45 million, and proceeded to build a home that they say is full of “homey, joyful details” that make it a unique addition to the many high-priced estates that run along the Gulf Coast of Florida.
They are now attempting to sell the home – which comes fully furnished – for a whopping 10,950,000 million.
535 70TH STREET, HOLMES BEACH – $10,950,000.00
The two-story, 5,921 square-foot waterfront residence contains many unusual and happy touches that were included to cater to the family’s three young children, including a crossword puzzle on the living room wall, sports equipment such as basketball nets, and an outdoor swing set.
The home features six bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, and numerous other spaces that can be used when the adults need to get away from the kids for a spell, including a TV room above the two-and-half-car garage and a Speakeasy with a built-in table that includes built-in wine and liquor shelves. The kitchen boasts a 16-foot island with a six-foot galley sink, along with numerous top-of-the-line appliances and ample pantry storage space.
The backyard has an infinity pool, a spa, and a five-hole putting green with sand dunes.
Melancon and his wife said they are making the decision to move because they already own a separate residence on Anna Maria Island and have decided to downsize, saying that “We’ve always been attracted to a strong community feel. Anna Maria has that. We love interacting and being a part of something bigger than just our own network. It’ll always be a part of our lives.”
