Located right on 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 or a stroll through the shops of Ruskin. 

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

First Floor: 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 refrigerator), 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 which offers plenty of comfortable leather seating and an LCD TV with HD Cable. The powder room is also on this level and has chalkboards walls where you can write your name or try your hand at a masterpiece of your own. Washer / Dryer in hall closet.

Second Floor: Up the stairs (either set), you'll find the first guest room with two twin beds, private balcony, and privacy curtains. This bedroom is open to the stairwell and while visually private, it opens to the stairwell. Hall guest bath with shower is also on this level.

Third Floor: Up the stairs another time, you're greeted with the king bedroom with LCD TV and private parade balcony overlooking the park. The twin guest room has 2 beds each with their own twin trundle, sleeping four comfortably. These two rooms share a hall guest bathroom with antique tub/shower.

Roof Top: Climb the last set of stairs for the best view in the house. The Roof Top offers beautiful 360 degree views of the town of Seaside, Ruskin Park, and best of beautiful 30A! You can watch the sunrise and sunset over the gulf with the best view in all from your very own house!

"We had such a wonderful stay in the Forsythe Home. It is a beautiful home I’ve wanted to rent for several years. The location is perfect too! So thankful there are a few owners in Seaside that allow us to bring our big fur babies."
