Seaside cottage description

Located just off Ruskin Park, The Forsythe House is a 3BR/2.5BA townhome that combines both modern and traditional the while maintaining the most unique artistic elements that are sure to have you taking a second look! As a part of Ruskin's Artist Colony, this premier cottage offers something for the whole family. While the kids write on the walls in the bathroom, the adults can enjoy an afternoon cocktail up on the 20x40 rooftop deck and much like the shops of Ruskin, The Forsythe House offers a little variety for everyone!

The Forsythe House gives you options from the minute you your car off Ruskin Place and enter the main level or stroll through Ruskin Park and enter through the green doors just off the porch. No matter which way you choose, you'll be greeted by distinct architectural design features and expansive living areas. The house even has two different staircases to choose from when deciding how you'd like to get upstairs.

As you make your way through the house, you'll notice there are two sides to every level. The main level offers a beautiful kitchen with commercial grade stainless appliances (including a Taulsen refridgerator), a dining table that seats 8, and beautiful handmade cabinetry. Take your time to really enjoy the flip down countertops and pull out butcher blocks, we've thought of everything! On the other side of the stairs you'll find the main living area (when you're not enjoying the several outdoor living spaces). Additional seating offers plenty of room to entertain. The 1/2 bath is also on the main level and is where you're sure to leave your own artistic "mark" on this cottage. With chalkboads for walls, you can write your name or try your hand at a masterpiece of your own.

Up the stairs (either set), you'll find the first guestroom with twin guest beds, private balcony, and privacy curtains. A guest bath is also on this level.

Up the stairs a second time, you're greeted with the king master bedroom and dual twin guestroom each with their own trundle. This room sleeps 4 comfortably. These two rooms share a guest bathroom with antique tub/shower.

Climb the last set of stairs for the best view in the house. The tower offers beautiful 360 degree views of the town of Seaside, Ruskin Park, and best of beautiful Emerald Coast! You can watch the sunrise and sunset over the gulf with the best view in all from your very own house!

Channel your inner artist when you stay at The Forsythe House and experience your beach vacation in a whole new light.

PETS WELCOME TO ENJOY THIS BEACH COTTAGE TOO!

**Please note this cottage might not be suitable for children under 10yrs of age due to the floating staircases.
