Seaside house description

Walk up the stairs and step into the glass surrounded great room with the turquoise seas calling. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves against the beach. Watch the famous gulf sunsets from the sofa, or walk the 10 steps to the beach entrance. Look out at night at the lights on the famed East Ruskin Pavilion right outside the windows. Take a stroll to Bud and Alley’s for dinner or a drink or perhaps an ice-cream at Heavenly Shortcakes. After sunning on the beach, riding bikes, or being our guest at the private Seaside Swim and Tennis Club, curl up in one of our (2) master suites. Both feature king-size beds with plush linens to indulge. Luxurious L'Occitane En Provence bath amenities are provided.

The second floor master has a newly remodeled private bath with double vanity and marble shower along with great ocean views and a gulf side balcony. The other master is for the late sleeper and is located on the first floor with its newly remodeled bath with double vanity, marble shower, morning kitchen and screen porch access. The third oversized suite has bunkbeds with plenty of play space, a 32' TV, play table and chairs and a private bath. Our home was recently re-furnished by Pizitz for that great Seaside feel.

The open concept kitchen was just completely remodeled with new cabinets and appliances including a GE stainless steel dual-fuel range. Vetrazzo (recycled sea glass) countertops and dark stained wood floors round out the fresh, clean look.

We've added Directv HD with Genie throughout the house. There’s a large 46' LCD TV and DVD in the living room, along with 32' LCD TV’s in each of the three bedrooms. WIFI access is available throughout the cottage. Sony Stereo with iPod Dock in living room and 2 private off-street parking spaces are provided.

This is the real deal for gulf viewing. You don’t have to hang over the balcony and stand on one leg to see the ocean. It’s right in plain sight and in full view from many vantage points. This was one of the original Anniversary Cottages (Completely re-done) at Seaside and overlooks the quaint Honeymoon Cottages that are in our front yard. Merilee By-The-Sea is the cottage you dream of. Simple, quaint, cozy, beautiful and ready for your memories.

Seaside Swim and Tennis Club Passes (3 pools, tennis courts, etc) are included 'In Summer Peak Season' Rates (May 24-August 15). Passes are available at other times for a nominal fee.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2008

          About the owner: We've traveled everywhere and found that our hearts were always drawn back to Seaside. From when Merilee first read about Seaside in 1983, until we finally visited for the first time in 1996, we were transformed. God answered our prayers and we were able to purchase our cottage in 2008. This is a treasure for all who come and it is our dream for our children, grandchildren and their children to enjoy the legacy of Seaside and Merilee By-The-Sea.

          Why the Owner Chose Seaside:
          Seaside is simply the best! The town has a great story to match the development. From Robert Davis' grandfather to the present day, great care has gone in to every detail that is Seaside. Often imitated, there's no substitute for the original.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Waking every morning and looking out at the gulf, just can't be beat. Walking to Bud & Alley's for a drink at sunset is priceless. During colder weather, stay inside and watch the sunset from our Great Room. This is the best location in Seaside. Park the car and walk to everything. Return to simpler times and enjoy the surrounding beauty and each other. There’s always something to do…or nothing at all. Check out the new 'V' in Seagrove. Miami Beach atmosphere comes to Seagrove. A short walk to great food and drinks, then take one of the 'rickshaws' home to your door.
