THIS week's Ayrshire property of the week is something a little bit different.

Rather than looking at one individual property, we're going to focus on a collections of homes that have been made available at a historic Ayrshire building.

The stunning restoration of fire ravaged Seafield House in Ayr was finally revealed earlier this month - and the Ayr Advertiser was given a first look inside the stunning new-look building.

The former home of civil engineer Sir William Arrol was set to be lost to the nation – until architect Robin Gosht and his Econstruct Group stepped in to save it.

Through partnership working, with support from the Friends of Seafield House and South Ayrshire Council, it now hosts 10 unique luxury apartments, which are now on the market.

After the devastating blaze in 2008, Seafield, for many years a maternity and children’s hospital, was reduced to a shell, roofless and with trees and vegetation growing through the floor.

Applications were made by potential buyers to raze the once proud mansion to the ground.

But in 2014, Robin and his business partner, Derek Shennan, acquired the site.

The former Seafield grounds now play host to some splendid modern homes – but the work on Sir William’s former home didn’t begin until 2021.

The man behind the plan, Robin, has a special attachment to Seafield – his father was a doctor there when the mansion was still a hospital.

And the project truly is a labour of love.

And it was this week that estate agents Corum Property shared the exciting news that it was them who were to bring Seafield House to the market.

They said: "We are exceptionally excited to bring Seafield House to the market in Ayr this week, undoubtedly one of Scotland’s most prestigious residential developments, bringing back to life a home that was designed and built by one of the country’s greatest engineers, Sir William Arrol.

"This landmark redevelopment of one of Ayr’s most historic buildings has been reimagined into a magnificent collection of two and three-bedroom apartments that offer grandeur in abundance, impressive specification and one of the finest fit-outs of any new build projects we have worked on.
