About the Property

All that glitters is gold!

Ideally located in the heart of Seaside's Ruskin Place, STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN is the consummate new urban residence. Widely admired and internationally published, this three story residence is a child of the Bauhaus International Modern Movement. Cast in the 1996 movie, 'The Truman Show', the Rubeo Architects sign prop still dazzles the Park entrance at the ground level. The southeast facing pedestrian corner of STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN embraces magical Ruskin Place Artist Colony Park; the two create a perfect and complementary union. With terraces and a roof top garden overlooking the romantically quaint and serene park and gallery adorned promenade, the most astonishing gulf views and sunsets compliment this poetically classic modern sanctuary. STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN is a dream fulfilled for the idealistic artistic soul or the seasoned voyager. You are just steps from the sugar sand beach, boutiques, galleries, the chapel, concerts, restaurants and farmers' markets.

The first floor, filled with bright playful energy and pure happiness, is comprised of a large lounge area and an intimate private bedroom that share a full bath and a convenience bar. The lounge area can easily be transformed to accommodate various functions and needs. There are two queen sized sleeper sofas, flat screen Smart TV, dining/game table, beverage center and ample storage making this area double as a third bedroom. Original mural artwork by Justin Lyons fills the entire north wall of the lounge. Both an east entrance off of the Park and a west entrance from private parking access the ground level arrangement. The colorfully modern private bedroom is outfitted with a double bed and another Smart TV.

The two story high glazing of the second level living area forms a retractable screen with subtle shifts in park panoramas. Or, if you desire to close the cascading sailcloth drapes, the space then becomes a thrilling private retreat. With STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN landmarked as the spiritual and physical pinnacle of Seaside, it is one of the sturdiest and most precisely constructed buildings on the Gulf Coast. Exclusive and new to the rental market, STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN is fully furnished with signature iconic modern pieces from Knoll, Herman Miller, Aida, Eames, Foscarini, Sakuya, Alivar, Breuer, and Saarinen. The dynamic, yet meditative second level living, kitchen, dining and powder bath spaces are introspectively seductive. Staircases link the second level on the southwest side to the Park and Gallery Promenade and down the west side to the Residence's private parking court.

The third level embraces the master bedroom (with king bed) and bath suite as the ultimate enclave of 1950's posh modern, pulling hue tones from our alluring Gulf waters. Breathtaking sunset views are a calming and seductive joy from the suite's western terrace.
