About Mrs. Malloy
Hello! My name is Mrs. Malloy and I am a retired High School Language teacher. On Mother's Day of 1993, my husband and I answered Mrs. Patteson's newspaper ad. What we saw was an impenetrable jungle on the Sebastian River. Imagine our surprise, for as we were clearing the property, we discovered a lagoon with access to the Sebastian River. Local rumors have it that the Spaniards looking for fresh water used this lagoon as a marker. This was when the Sebastian River in it's pristine era was deep enough for Spanish armadas to pass thru. My son Greg is convinced that Spanish treasures are buried in this property. Please no digging! Don't humor him.
Mrs. Malloy purchased this chateau / country house in 1993
Why Mrs. Malloy chose Sebastian
When I lived in 'The Lagoon House' my private abode was upstairs. With it's exterior staircase, once upstairs you feel as if you are in another world. A world filled with exquisite natural beauty. My bedroom window, livingroom sliding glass door and kitchen window all overlook the spectacular landscape of the lagoon with it's jumping fishes, the river and the boats, the oaks, the bamboos, the palms... so much to see and feel.
Yet after having lived downstairs.....so much easier on my legs.....I tend to prefer it. It's just the right size. No extra space to lose yourself or things. I made it a habit to leave my keys, phone and glasses right by the kitchen doors. You are downstairs and will hear foot steps upstairs.....hopefully like trains passing you will get used to it. If you remember the movie....'Men in Black', when Dan Akroid was asked how often the trains passed, he answered ' so often that you don't even notice it.' The natural beauty of flora and fauna from the lagoon and the Sebastian River will make your stay memorable.
What makes this chateau / country house unique
Yes...you are at the deep end of the road. The last house....squeezed between a creek, the river with it's private lagoon, the surrounding oak trees and greenery.
You will be enveloped, caressed and lulled by mother nature. Be on the look out for manatees. We have sired generations in the lagoon. Offspring return to continue the cycle of life.
