Statement of Interest

From the beginning of the 19th century Aberdeen rapidly expanded westwards from Union Street. 13 Bayview Road is part of the later 19th/early 20th century development W of Queen's Cross. Bayview Road was originally part of the estate of Rubislaw. In 1877 Rubislaw Estate was bought by the City of Aberdeen Land Association, who re-aligned the road and sold off the estate in smaller plots. Streets became wider and villas with substantial gardens often replaced terraces. Prestigious architects were often employed to produce bold and unusual designs to reflect the wealth and individuality of the clients. Features of particular note include the decorative canted windows, scrolled gatepiers and conservatory (which was part of the original design).
