301 E Ruskin Place

Nestled in the heart of Seaside, this unique Ruskin Place residence overlooks the town center and showcases stunning views of the famed emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Designed by renowned architect Alexander Gorlin, this iconic residence truly characterizes quintessential Seaside. The exterior classical design was based on a tripartite Italian palazzo scheme and exhibits a modernist emphasis on flat, planar surfaces and simplified forms, with an industrial-type interpretation of a cornice in galvanized steel. The interior space is modern and features a double-height living area behind the three twelve-foot-high French doors set providing views into Ruskin Park. An open staircase winds around a central pier uniting the ground floor with the rooftop office. This processional stair, which also acts as a skylight, emerges from the cozy area of the lower level into the high space of the living room and onto the roof deck, finally revealing a view of the Gulf of Mexico.
