House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps
Rome Prize-winning architect Walter Chatham built this special beach home. It has been featured on the cover of Architectural Record as “House of the Year,' and was awarded the prestigious “Award of Excellence” by the National AIA (American Institute of Architects). Also featured on the covers of Thirty-A Review, Florida Architecture, Houston magazine, and six major books on outdoor Florida architecture, the Chatham House is a landmark in Seaside, Florida.
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 almost be entirely opened up. According to Chatham, “The house functions best with all doors open, blurring the distinction between indoor and outdoor living.”
Bedrooms and Bathrooms: The house features three queen bedrooms on the entry level. Each of these bedrooms has an LCD TV with Apple TV, side chairs, bedside tables and lamps. One of the queens has a private bathroom with shower. The other two queen bedrooms each have their own private sink and toilet, but share a tub/shower and dressing area between them. On the second floor, a fourth room functions as an office / bedroom. It has a loft with two twins reached by a rolling library style ladder. This loft is not for children under the age of 6 or is also not suitable for the elderly or persons with mobility issues. Each of the loft beds has its own TV. The built-in desk and shelving offer an opportunity to study, work or read. Also in this room is a unique yacht style bathroom with overhead rain shower and pedestal sink. The home is filled with modern art and eclectic yet comfortable furniture.
Inside Common Areas: The home has a multi-media center with Sirius XM satellite radio, satellite FM radio, wireless internet and an iPad controller system for the lighting, sound systems, outdoor cameras, air conditioning and pool systems. The small yet functional kitchen has a Viking gas range, Sub-Zero frig, dishwasher and microwave. The living area has a sofa with queen futon style fold-out bed, side chairs, lounger couch and a soon to be installed 60” LED TV. The dining area has a large round table which seats six. Laundry room has front loading washer and dryer (located in one of the queen bedrooms).
Outside Common Areas: A dramatic glass bridge over a glass tiled Koi pool leads to the front of the home. A Bisazza glass tiled private heated pool sits in the center of the home, with fountains and a swim jet. The pool has two loungers and three seat cushions for guest comfort. A front marble dining table seating eight flanks a Viking outdoor gas grill. The magnificent tower features a multi-person hot tub, LCD TV, outdoor sink and breakfast table. The tower overlooks the gulf and the town of Seaside.

Awesome and Unique
Chatham gave us the opportunity to choose privacy while inside the home OR to choose to open the inside of the home to the outside to experience an "inside-out" environment! It was an awesome experience that no other home could offer.
While inside, we felt pampered with Chatham Spa Robes and Luxury amenities.
While the home was open, all the rooms became part of the pool deck where the children's swimming could be viewed from any room.
Privacy and Serenity was experienced on the third floor Hot Tub tower with the view of sea and the sound of the waves.
Meal time was enjoyed around the Grilling area that was very inviting with the super grill and the table with seating for the whole family around the peaceful Koi Pond.
Our stay at Chatham was one we want to repeat!
thank you for your review.
We do our best))
We welcome you back!
We stay in Seaside 2x/year but never at a house like this
