Tour House is an arresting period house in Ayrshire which has undergone significant refurbishment in the last few years, and successfully blends traditional features including gothic doorways and corner turrets, vaulted ceilings and large open fires with a fine range of modern improvements which include modern bathrooms, a bespoke kitchen and upgraded heating systems.

The roof was fully overhauled in 2009 and a conservatory was added to the eastern side by the gardens.

Accommodation comprises a gothic entrance vestibule, grand hallway, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, morning room, conservatory, games room, breakfast kitchen, and boot room on the ground floor. On the first floor is the magnificent galleried landing with twin cupolas, six double bedrooms, family bathroom and shower room.

Tour House is located in a secluded setting between Kilmarnock and Stewarton, on the outskirts of the village of Kilmaurs, with easy access to the M77. Glasgow is 23 miles.
