Description of the Santa Rosa Beach vacation cottage rental
Rome Prize winning architect Walter Chatham built this special beach home, and the same it was on the cover of Architectural Record as the magazine “House of the Year,' and was awarded the prestigious “Award of Excellence” by the National AIA. Featured on the covers of 30A, Florida Architecture, Houston Magazine, and six major books on outdoor Florida architecture, The Chatham House is a Seaside landmark.

The award winning structure consists of two pavilions flanking either side of a central heated pool, with a central 40 foot tower. Utilizing movable panels and multiple doorways, the house can be almost entirely opened up. According to Chatham, “The house functions best with all doors open, blurring the distinction between indoor and outdoor living.”

The house features three full traditional bedrooms and a forth bunk room with a full bath and shower, a Bisazza glass tiled pool in the center of the home, with fountains and a swim jet. Each room is filled with modern art and eclectic yet functional furniture.

The home has a multi- media center with Apple TV in each room. A dramatic glass bridge over a glass tiled Koi pool leads to the front of the home. The kitchen has Viking and Subzero appliances. A front marble dinning table flanks a Viking outdoor kitchen grill. The tower features a multi-person hot tub and breakfast table overlooking the ocean and the town.
Area Information
The best way to see Seaside is to stay in Seaside. 30 years ago the town of Seaside was established. And that is part of the magic of Seaside. It is a town. A Seaside resort town. It is charming and romantic, beautiful and graceful, diverse and ecclectic, authentic and unpretentious, alive and vibrant. Perhaps the dream for Seaside 30 years ago was the dream for life itself. Simplicity, grace, elegance. Seaside is defined by this basic truth. Seaside reminds so many people of what is truly real in life. What is truly significant. A simple connection to family and friends and the beauty that abounds in this special corner of the world.
Seaside is not a cookie cutter beach resort. Indeed we have pools and tennis courts and other beach resort amenities, but Seaside is more. It is an experience. It is an experience that not only changes the way a vacation is lived, it changes the way a life is lived. Seaside helps us all live a dream. The dream of a simple, beautiful life.
