Statement of Interest

222 and 224 Westburn Road is a typical Aberdeen semi-detached house, and survives virtually unaltered. It was possibly designed by Arthur Clyne, being similar to the nearby Argyll Place and Crescent which he and his partner John Bridgeford Pirie designed some 20 years earlier. The band of dark grey granite replaces the pink granite of the Argyll terraces, whilst the curved walls converted to angles are retained. The railings to the left of the house are identical to those at the Whitehill Bowling Club on Hamilton Place (see separate listing), also designed by Pirie and Clyne.
