Property description

Mable Haardt Cottage, former home of ROBERT DAVIS. When Seaside was first created by Robert Davis, there were only five original houses in all of Seaside. This cottage on 105 Tupelo Street was the home of Seaside founder Robert Davis and now is called THE MABEL HAARDT COTTAGE. Mabel Haardt, a Montgomerian bought the cottage in 1992 and gave it to her grandson, Haardt Moses. Now, the city is fully developed, but back in the early 1980's the city of Seaside was but a fertile seed of Mr. Davis' unique and expansive imagination.

The Yellow House is one of the first two Seaside Cottages. It served both as the initial residence of Robert and Daryl Davis and as a model home for prospective buyers.

The house is based on prototypes from northwest Florida of which the architect, Robert Davis, had sketches and photographs. The design highlights the pitch and form of the roof which is gabled in the center with a surrounding hip roof covering the porch. The porch faces south to capture the prevailing south-southeast breezes and contributes to the passive solar design of the house by shading it in the summer when the sun is high and allowing the window glass to collect heat in the winter when the sun is low.

The initial concept promoted a large interior living space wrapped by a porch, and over time the porch was filled in as small spaces were enclosed. As gas stoves gained popularity over wood stoves, the kitchen was moved inside, and the same was true of plumbing to accommodate a flush toilet and septic tank. A small bedroom was partitioned off, and the porch is still used to accommodate guests. When originally built, a return air grill at the top of the ceiling allowed for fans to carry the warm air from the central space to the periphery to heat the partitioned spaces.


When you stay in the Mabel Haardt cottage you will be experiencing some of Seaside, Florida's earliest history. This house, only a minute to the beach and a 5 minute walk into the center of town. This two bedroom, two bath cottage is all on one level except for the loft. There is a king bedroom and private bath (tub only) and a double bedroom with a hall bath with shower and side exit. There is also a loft, with a twin bed, overlooking the living room, dining, and kitchen areas. There is a screened, wrap around porch complete with porch swing and rockers.
