FERNLEIGH in Seaside, Florida

Space 2,111 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Adorned with a charming enclosed front porch and generous outdoor living space, ‘Fernleigh’

dishes up a rustic yet inviting entrance to what exists inside. Filled with lovely antiques, yet

comfortable enough for a family to enjoy with an array of unique furnishings and memories just ready to explore.

Owned by the former owners of a local antique shop by the same name, the ‘Fernleigh’ cottage

offers plentiful windows and glass doors, opening up the indoor living space to the outdoors.

Filled with rocking chairs and even a porch swing, the inviting front porch is something sure to

be adored. Meanwhile on the back end of the cottage visitors are treated to more outdoor space,

as the deck can also be accessed there by a first-floor bedroom and via the kitchen.

Beyond the kitchen, filled with plenty of cabinetry and counter space, the first floor also opens

up to a dining area for six while the spacious living room centers around the home’s cozy

fireplace. A walkway leads on to the first-floor master bedroom and accompanying master bath,

supplemented by a unique claw-foot shower tub and pedestal sink.

Two more bedrooms are upstairs, one a queen-sized bed with direct balcony access and another

that comfortably fits a daybed trundle, also with easy access to the elongated balcony, with

plenty of room for sitting and enjoying the mature, landscaped views from the privacy of your

own vacation home.

Located just a short walk from the beach, ‘Fernleigh’ easily adapts to a beach lifestyle yet retains

its own identity, blending a rustic exterior with an eclectic mix of fanciful furnishings that work

together to make the ‘Fernleigh’ truly unique.

Why Homeowners Collection chose Beaches of South Walton

We choose to purchase our vacation home in Seaside. Seaside is a beautiful community in Northwest Florida. It is unlike any other location in the world. We quickly fell in love with this place and new we needed to have our own piece of it. This is a family friendly house with that Seaside feel that makes this place so special.

Beautiful home close to the beach. Only a couple of recommendations. The furniture in the family room is very uncomfortable. Although the home is beautifully furnished with antiques, there is not a comfortable chair in the house. The furniture on the screened porch is better. The refrigerator needs to be replaced. The television in the MBR is very small and it would be nice if there were TVs in the other bedrooms. Even with antiques, it is still kid-friendly. Our 1 and 3 year olds thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We will definitely return to Seaside but will look for a more comfortable setting next time.
