A SEASIDE home in Seamill, with stunning views across to Arran, is a finalist in tonight’s Home of the Year show.

The glass-fronted house on Ardrossan Road, owned by Chris and Jean, received full marks from two judges putting it through to the final.

One judge, architect and university teacher Michael Angus, said it is ‘a beautiful, beautiful home’.

The BBC television show featured homes from across Scotland looking for somewhere that is architecturally brilliant, beautifully designed and has a sense of liveability about it.

Chris and Jean bought the pre-existing house and turned it into a contemporary Scottish home that brings the outdoors indoors.

It features open plan living, with four bedrooms, two en suites, three bathrooms, and a sauna and wet room.

There is a large back garden complete with views across the Firth of Clyde.

Chris said: “The whole idea was from outside the front door, you can look through and you can see Arran.”

Jean said: “Light and space. Morning sun in the kitchen. Morning sun in the bedroom as well.”

Darach on Arran, built by handyman Andy and wife Nicky, was also a semi-final contender, but missed out by just one point.

Judges praised the sense of love, family and humour in the building.

Interior designer and judge Anna Campbell-Jones said: “It really tells you who the people are who live here.”

Tune into BBC Scotland at 8pm this evening to find out if Chris and Jean’s Seamill home wins Scotland’s Home of the Year.
