Friends of Seafield House (FoSH) welcomes the sale of Seafield House and grounds to econstruct design and build, an Ayr-based developer founded by Robin Ghosh. Seafield House is SAVED! The sale was concluded yesterday, Friday 10 October 2014.  Econstruct plan to restore Seafield House as residential apartments and build a small number of new-build houses in the grounds.

We extend our warmest thanks to all those who supported our campaign to SAVE Sir William Arrol’s former home in Ayr. We thank those who became Friends, attended public meetings, visited our exhibitions & posted messages of support on our website/Facebook page & Twitter feed. We thank in particular Marcus Binney, President of SAVE Britain’s Heritage, and his colleagues, who have been the head, heart and soul of our campaign from day one.

A new chapter is opening for Seafield House. We wish Robin Ghosh and his colleagues all success and will support them as they follow through the planning and consents process.

Again, we extend our warmest thanks to all those who supported our campaign to SAVE Seafield House, Sir William Arrol’s former home in Ayr.
