This premium three-story townhome boasts an outstanding location at 202 Ruskin Pl in the iconic Seaside. Just the location alone offers a prestigious setting in the artistic section of Seaside known as Ruskin Place. This small "artist colony" features galleries, specialty shops, and other enchanting shopping destinations. They border a lush lawn courtyard surrounded by Live Oak trees and lovely gardens, which are a close distance away from the central village amphitheater.
Just a short stroll away from all the Seaside concerts, festive activities, shopping adventures, and the bright white crystalline shoreline, this location cannot be more perfect. Seaside was the first idyllic coastal village established along Scenic 30A in the 1980s. It received international architectural acclaim for its creative pedestrian-friendly design, which was the first of its kind in the world. The other coastal villages that followed were not established until the early 2000s. Since then, Scenic 30A has become a popular setting among buyers due to its pristine natural beauty and picture-perfect coastal villages. When you purchase a property here, it is more than a home. It's a lifestyle.
This classically styled townhome distinctively resembles the captivating architecture found in the old French Quarter of New Orleans. The charming exteriors include a small gated entry patio with two levels of wrought iron railed open verandas above that overlook the park-like setting. It encompasses 5,526 square feet of amazing space, including six bedrooms with luxury ensuite baths and two additional half baths serving as convenient powder rooms. Four highly sought-after deeded parking spaces are provided for owners in a garage under the building. The first floor is being used as upscale retail space, as are many of the townhomes in this arty neighborhood. This can provide extra income for prospective owners if so desired for the rented retail space or a studio apartment. A regal tall arched double glass door leads into the entry foyer with an elevator near a floating staircase that connects to the two upper levels providing convenient access.
The expansive open concept designed living, dining, and kitchen areas are on the upper third-floor level. This space with beach-washed hardwood flooring has abundant natural light, multiple windows, and five floor-to-ceiling French doors leading to an open balcony with a built-in gas grill for outdoor entertainment.
A large unique, raised skylight pergola which crowns the rooftop sits directly above the dining area, which also features a gleaming chrome sconce chandelier.
The large open kitchen features top-of-the-line brushed stainless steel appliances with a side-by-side refrigerator freezer, double ovens, a white quartz-topped island with a gas range and seating, a wet bar, and a wine cooler for entertaining.
A spiral staircase graciously leads up to the glass pergola resembling a Victorian solarium that provides entry onto an open rooftop sundeck. This entertainment space provides stunning panoramic views of the coastal village and the glittering jewel-toned gulf waters in the distance. Sunsets are absolutely heavenly here, and the views of the scenery are sensational.
The master bedroom and other guest quarters are on the second floor. A triple set of double glass French doors lead out to an open veranda from the master bedroom that overlooks the lavishly landscaped courtyard grounds. Three other beautifully appointed guest quarters also have direct access to their own romantic balconies.
They all feature luxurious private ensuite baths adorned with white quartz countertops. They feature large glass-walled walk-in showers, while the master bedroom also includes a deep free-standing soaking tub for pampered relaxation.
