Take a second to think about every week of waking as much as a view of Half Moon Bay past manicured acres and aromatic floral gardens, a maid making her method throughout the garden from the servants quarters to the 2 hundred and fifty yr previous Plantation House to make a gorgeous tropical breakfast accompanied by mild musings carried on the ocean breeze from a music home consistent with the English Colonial type. Now, think about if this fantastical week became a yearâ€¦ ten yearsâ€¦ the top of days. For eleven and a half million American dollars this might stop to be a dream.
Picket flooring of their angular geometrics praise white plantation shutters that serve to usher the English Colonial fashion indoors. Every of the bedrooms reveal a white 4-poster mattress with a floral cover and corresponding shades in gentle furnishings. The fragile mattress-frames successfully talk with wicker furnishings that inhabits the huge dwelling areas, lit by a really deliberate choice of lamps and vintage chandeliers. What lingers inside Mellon Property’s inside areas is an integrity of favor, a way that the gathering housed inside is a part of a higher narrative and by no means, contrived.
Historic in each design and story, the Mellon Property owes maybe its most engaging function (its gardens) to the previous proprietor. A horticulturalist and shut pal of the Kennedys, Rachel Mellon is famed for her fashion in creating the White Home Rose Backyard, a method that so appealed to former First Woman, Woman Hen Johnson, that she was requested to take her practiced hand to the East Backyard of the White Home in 1965.
