Media Release: Shepherd offers unique opportunity, to let, an exclusive headquarters building in Aberdeen West End


SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors is offering a unique opportunity to let a landmark headquarters building located within a stunning tranquil setting in the heart of Aberdeen’s West End.

The extensively refurbished Gordon House has a fascinating history.

No 27, or previously, Rubislaw Den House, was built in 1881 for granite merchant William Keith, featuring impressive Gothic and Scottish baronial bays, turrets and pointed windows.

In 1935, the house was bought for Ishbel, Marchioness of Aberdeen and Temair, an early campaigner for women’s rights and the widow of John Campbell Hamilton-Gordon (the first Marquess and former governor-general of Canada).

Her new home was renamed Gordon House, after the Aberdeen family name.

Chris Grinyer, managing partner at Shepherd’s Aberdeen office, said: “The imposing Gordon House has now been extensively refurbished to the highest specification in preparation for use as a Headquarters building.

“Suitable for a variety of occupiers, its range of private offices and larger open plan spaces retain many of the building’s original architectural features, complemented by the introduction of top-quality fittings and state-of-the-art environmentally friendly heating and lighting systems.”

The 12,540 sq ft property, which can accommodate up to 140 staff and comes with 43 car parking spaces, is set within its own grounds and offers an outlook over Rubislaw Den gardens.

A rent in the region of £30 per sq ft is sought.
