In the second half of the 19th century Aberdeen began to expand westwards following the introduction of the granite trade and the expansion of the harbour. 3 Hamilton Place is a good example of type of 19th century villas which emerged at that time. The Scots Baronial style was much favoured, possibly following the example of Balmoral. Features of note at 3 Hamilton Place include the angle turret, oriel windows, bowed bay and decorative gablets.
