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. Large numbers of villas and terraces were built. 4 and 6 Hamilton Place is a good example of the type of villas which emerged in the 19th century. It is unusual in that the Hamilton Place elevation is symmetrical in formula, but has asymmetrical detailing, notably the contrasting bowed and canted windows on the ground floor. Of particular note is the fine doorway to 4 Hamilton Place fronting Westfield Road.
