The Sarasota-area waterfront mansion of MLB pitcher Mark Melancon is back on the open market this spring. The 5,921 sq. ft. Caribbean-inspired house was initially listed by the four-time All-Star about a year ago, when it asked $15 million. The Anna Maria Island property is currently listed at $10.95 million.
The 2020 build contains six bedrooms and six baths across two levels. Its façade is bisected by a full-width balcony fed by a trio of French doors, establishing a relaxed tradewinds feel that carries through the home. The balcony is echoed in the back of the house, where it surveys the waterway.
Inside the home, a more contemporary feel balances out the more traditional elements, with backlit coffered ceilings, wide-plank hardwood, herringbone-pattern accents, and an open-concept living area enhanced by pocketing glass that opens the room up to saline breezes. The master bedroom again harkens back to pre-war Caribbean, with a ceiling fan and can wall panels amid beige tones.
The kitchen features a long island outfitted with a prep sink, and a pantry; pocketing doors open to a cute wet bar. The family room and the primary covered outdoor patio are outfitted with gas fireplaces.
Other amenities on this eligible little West Coast estate include an outdoor kitchen, putting green, and infinity-edge pool.
