About the Listing

503 8th Ave SW This lovely 'Historic Pill Hill' home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is nestled into almost a half acre of lush vegetation and is located with-in walking distance to both St. Mary's Hospital and the downtown Mayo campus. This historic home was built in 1910 for Maud Mellish, the first medical editor of the Mayo Clinic, and then owned and expanded by Dr. 'Pop' Shelden, the first Chair of Neurology at Mayo and an avid horticulturist and woodworker who planned the original tree plantings at the Rochester Country Club. He brought the same sense of detailed planning to his home and its surroundings that he brought to the Country Club. This distinctive Neoclassical home features a master bedroom suite, three bedrooms, living room, dining room, family room, office, 2 1/2 bathrooms, cedar closets, a large Arts and Crafts wood-burning fireplace, lower level wine cellar, laundry, and shelved storage. The main house boasts recent, quality improvements throughout: new central air conditioning, high efficiency heating, expanded insulation, granite kitchen, and updated bath fixtures. The main house adjoins a two-car garage with a new concrete driveway. The main house is complemented by the beautiful 'Summer House' that is heated on both levels and whose upper level has endless, potential uses: recreation/party room, apartment, office, studio, or fitness room. The upper level room was used by Dr. Shelden as an office and woodworking shop that includes a thick concrete floor, a wood-burning fireplace, and expansive bi-fold windows on all four sides. The lower level includes a heated shop with natural light and a single car garage. The main house and Summer House are set into a landscape that includes 1000 sq ft of redwood decks and porches, natural stone patios, walls, and pathways, that are surrounded by specimen trees (Dawn Redwoods, Pagoda Dogwoods, Horse Chestnuts, and an imposing hardy kiwi vine), shrubs, including tree peonies, junipers, and lilacs, a raspberry patch, and an expansive array of perennials and bulbs. This home has been pre-inspected and noted issues have been resolved; simply, there are no needed repairs.
