Along South Walton's Scenic 30A, iconic Seaside received international fame and acclaim when it was first created back in the early-1980s. Its pedestrian-friendly, charming, Americana styled architecture and meticulous village plan ushered in the “New Urbanism” town design which was the first of its kind in the modern era. It created an idyllic lifestyle in a precious piece of paradise with a finite number of properties that have always been in high demand and commanding top dollar. Currently, there are 20 homes for sale in Seaside priced from $775,000 to $6,490,000. The average list price stands at $3,138,857.
This cozy 1,275 square foot two-bedroom cottage is no exception. It is one of eleven cottages designed by renowned architects Robert Orr and Melanie Taylor to sit in a harmonious enchanting setting at the Seaside “Rosewalk” enclave. Three archways lead to paths through a canopy of native scrub oaks in this neighborhood that is just steps away from the shimmering shore.
A screened-in porch spans across the front, inviting you to relax enjoying the gulf breeze. Double glass doors bid entry inside to a breathtaking surprise.
A cathedral ceiling soars two stories above with railed landings that look down below. The tall double hung windows and soaring ceiling provides lots of spacious natural bright light. Honey-toned hardwood flooring flows throughout delivering a warm glowing accent. The main part of the open area resembles a Gathering Room that is centrally located and provides a perfect place for a dining table. A galley kitchen adjoining this room has a sunny window and a retro-styled mosaic frame tile floor.
One of the living areas is off to one side with a vaulted white beamed truss ceiling that is magically brightened with ambient lighting. There is a matching sitting area on the other side that is framed by two towering columns. A Guest Bedroom on this level has access to a full bath that doubles as a powder room. The main gathering room is detailed with creamy custom cabinetry that includes built-in shelving, and formal arch topped decorative niches.
Stairs sweep up to a landing that contains a loft-like sitting area just outside the Master Bedroom that looks down below. The lovely Master Suite includes another vaulted ceiling with a stained glass piece that resembles a peacock’s fan decorating the truss top. Two walls of windows help accentuate this space, and it has a full bath with two vanities as well as a tub with a shower.
A romantic private, intimate balcony off the Master Bedroom Suite provides glorious views of the jeweled waters of the gulf in the distance.
