Statement of Interest

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. No 14 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. No 60 Hamilton Place is the mirror image of No 14, so was presumably by the same architect or builder. Both houses are similar to No 42 Belgrave Terrace, which was designed by John Rust, the City Architect, so it seems likely that they too were of his hand. Features of particular note are the angle turret, decorative hoodmould to the doorway, and unusual sloping stair windows to E.
