Tower Bridge in London, is arguably one of Sir William Arrol’s greatest achievements and this can also be said about the Tower of his own home in Seafield House. The Tower apartment is undoubtedly the quirkiest within Seafield House and one of the finest, most exquisite conversions in the country with accommodation spanning over 4.5 levels and a 365 degree unobstructed view of the Ayrshire coastline.
When entering the apartment on the ground, you are greeted with a memory to the heavy engineering background of the man who designed, built and lived in Seafield House – a large steel spiral staircase spanning 2 levels. On the ground floor accessed from the hall is a modest study room with adjoining master double bedroom. This generously proportioned bedroom boasts extensive casement windows over looking the designed gardens, a walk in closet and 3 piece en-suite shower room. A compact cloakroom is positioned directly adjacent to the master suite.
Climbing the large spiral staircase you are greeted by a lavish open plan space on the first floor where the discreetly positioned Neptune kitchen and matching stone surfaced island meets with an open plan living and entertaining space. This space continuous to wrap round the stairwell to a dining area positioned in front of three large casement windows. A further double bedroom and ensuite shower room complete the floor.
Continuing to the second floor a large 4 piece main bathroom is centrally positioned within the roof space utilising an area where Sir William Arrol’s original bath was positioned where seawater was pumped all the way to the bath, taken from the nearby sea. A further well-proportioned double bedroom is accessed from the second floor hall.
Sandstone stairs then narrow, rise and turn into the main tower area of the apartment. After a short climb, you enter the mind blowing and truly stunning tower room with large triple windows on all four elevations providing fully exposed views of the town and across the sea to the Isle of Arran. An original tiled mosaic floor and exposed sandstone walls complete the appearance of this after dinner snug space. For those feeling adventurous the sandstone stair continues to rise to a small look-out space, this time circular in shape with similar small crittall windows providing 365 degree views.

Seafield House is set naturally within the heart of the luxurious Seafield Gardens development and enjoys exclusive main access taken through large sandstone gate piers and wrought iron controlled gates. Once inside, generously laid out grounds to the North and South are kept distinct from the new housing by an extensive mature landscaping scheme. In keeping with 18th century designed landscapes of stately homes, the gardens closest to the front of Seafield House are a formal parterre, with the existing wooded ground to the south of Seafield House forming a more informal naturalistic style garden meandering within the mature trees.
From the Corum office in Beresford Terrace proceed south veering right onto Midton Road. At the T-junction turn right onto Racecourse View and veer left onto Doonfoot Road. Seafield is set back from the road on the right hand side.
