A penthouse in Seaside, Florida? Yes, there is such a thing located in the heart of this iconic Americana styled coastal village, and it's now offered for sale! Seaside received international acclaim back in the 1980s when it introduced the “New Urbanism” design in town planning for easily accessible pedestrian living. The enchanting style resembles a “seaside” town built in the early 1900s. White picket fences, beach pavilions, gazebos and an amphitheater that features concerts provide golden charm. Restaurants, casual friendly beach bars, galleries, boutiques, musical performances, fun festivities, and seasonal events abound. If you’ve never visited, you might have seen Seaside when it was used as the idyllic fantasy town of “Seahaven” in Jim Carrey’s “The Truman Show” in 1998.
This luxurious four bedroom penthouse at 45 Central Square in Seaside encompasses over 2,800 square feet and overlooks the palm-studded amphitheater green, the glittering gulf and all of the action in the village. Your private elevator whisks you up to this regal residence that features bright, comfortable contemporary surroundings. This place comes wholly furnished with upscale designer décor that could be featured in the latest edition of Better Homes and Gardens or Coastal Living magazines.
The open modern Great Room features three walls of windows that overlook the incredible scenery. Light Travertine marble flooring flows throughout while a formal white tray ceiling above is painted in pale blue to resemble the sky. This spacious living area has three sets of plush latte colored couches that face the views and a TV for entertainment.
A white marble-topped oval table sits beneath a spherically shaped glass ball chandelier and includes fashionable clear mid-century modern vintage acrylic chairs for dining. A side portal leads to an alcove adjoining the kitchen with a window seat accommodating two white tripod tables for intimate meals, appetizers or drinks. Sliding glass doors access a covered open porch for a teak topped table with eight chairs for outdoor dining while viewing the gulf and village activities down below. You may “eat, drink and be merry” here among friends while listening to the concerts or enjoying a vibrant holiday fireworks display.
The Gourmet Kitchen is exceedingly upscale with Wolf and Subzero appliances, black marble countertops and rich mahogany wood custom cabinetry.
The expansive Master Suite has a soaring white beamed ceiling, a king-sized bed, and full-sized cream colored couch. One side of the bedroom has a dressing area and a large free standing soaking tub with a partition for partial use.
The separate private luxury bath features a wide glass-walled shower and double vanity sinks with raised black bowls and mahogany cabinetry. There are two well-appointed vintage mod styled Guest Bedrooms, and one features a king-sized bed, mahogany paneled clothing wall and an en-suite bath. Another spacious Guest Bedroom with two queen sized beds and a Bunk Room that sleeps six shares a full bath.
