Believed to date from 1887 this prestigious Grade II Listed house is believed to have been constructed for a Scottish Confectioner and is finished in a Scottish Baronial style with dressed red stone elevations beneath mainly pitched slate roofs. It is evident that no expense was spared when the property was constructed and it features wonderful detailing including castellated parapets with canon water spouts, together with a four storey square tower and a taller circular stair turret giving access to a roof terrace.

The current owners have been in occupation since 2003 and during that time they have carried out numerous and sympathetic improvements to the property so that it now provides a beautifully appointed and particularly spacious family home. The interior features a number of elegant and beautifully proportioned reception rooms including a magnificent reception hall with a bifurcated staircase rising to a large half landing with large arched stained glass window. There are three main reception rooms including a particularly light and airy double aspect drawing room, which opens through to the sitting room, creating a wonderful entertaining space. There is also a particularly spacious dining room, together with a former billiard room, now utilised as a second sitting room.   On the second floor can be found a library. There are six bedrooms, together with three bathrooms.

The property exhibits many wonderful period features typical of its age including impressive fireplaces, many with elaborate over mantles, excellent carpentry generally and these are complimented by modern fixtures and fittings including gas fired central heating.

Additionally on the ground floor is a one bedroom apartment which has its own separate access and courtyard garden.

Elgin Tower stands in grounds extending to about 1.5 acres. The property is approached from the road through a pillared entrance way with remotely operated gates opening onto a driveway leading to a gravelled sweep in front of the property providing parking and turning space. To the rear of the property is a Garage, currently utilised as a Workshop. The majority of the gardens lie to the West of the property with areas of lawn with pathways leading up to the remainder of the garden which is lightly wooded with a variety of evergreens, deciduous trees and a multitude of shrubs. From the kitchen there is access to a large terrace which affords stunning views over Minehead and to the Bristol Channel.
