Seafield and Seafield Court are a pair of substantial semi-detached villas set amid a group of listed buildings, including Eglantine and Little Court Hotel. Together they form a picturesque group of villas set on rising ground immediately to the edge of the historic core of the town. Seafield and Seafield Court are well preserved examples of their type, illustrating many mid 19th century Gothic characteristics. Details include elaborate fascia boards, rusticated render and hood mould over the windows. Characteristically, the pair of villas are set in a fairly substantial garden setting.
