Seaside, a collection of quintessential beach cottages, created a big splash internationally and heralded a popular movement called "New Urbanism." This little town is a prominent topic taught in architectural schools throughout the nation, and students visit to study the founder's pioneering plan design. Each individual residence dovetails nicely into this charming recreation with various styles, including a classic Old Florida look, Beach Bungalows, Greek revival, Victorian, and even a smattering of Art Deco modern around the village green. It has been named Best Beach on Earth by Travel & Leisure magazine and is listed as USA Today's Top Ten Beach Towns in Florida. The town was showcased and received national exposure in the satiric comedy The Truman Show starring Jim Carey, filmed on location. Funds received by the town for filming rights were used to establish one of the first Charter Schools in Florida, known as the Seaside School, which consistently ranks among the top ten Middle Schools in Florida.
Since many of these homes are gulf-front, they provide good investment income since owners can rent them out as vacation rentals weekly, especially during the busy summer months but still relish retaining them for their use during other times of the year. Our highly esteemed Ocean Reef Resorts property management division represents many vacation rentals for owners. We can quickly provide detailed data for gross rental income on comparable properties to interested buyers upon request.
The beautiful town is pedestrian and bike-friendly, allowing residents to explore all that Seaside has to offer. The town center includes art galleries, excellent clothing & toy stores, and surf shops. Be sure to visit the Seaside Farmers Market on Saturdays. It offers fresh local vegetables, fresh produce, and art. The restaurants and eclectic food trucks are set up daily, offering gourmet hot dogs, shrimp shack, markets, and fresh local seafood. Seaside is a beacon to several artists who opened galleries in the village. The neighborhoods also come with private beach access points throughout the community, so residents can enjoy the sugar-white sand beaches.
Seaside is one of the most well-known coastal villages on Scenic Highway 30A. It is perfectly located between Grayton Beach and Seagrove Beach. There isn't a home or condo that is more than a short bike ride or stroll from the Gulf of Mexico's beautiful emerald waters. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy swimming and other ocean sports on the white sand beaches, cycling along Scenic Highway 30A, and the many hiking and nature-watching opportunities. This ideal location puts you minutes away from Western Lake, which offers freshwater activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, and fishing.
