R S MacDonald Charitable Trust

Door open days


Initial designs were made for 21 Rutland Square by Archibald Elliot in 1819 but the ground floor flat was actually completed in 1837 as part of a development by John Learmonth and his architect John Tait. 


Key Information

Architect: John Tait

Building Date: 1837

The address is now home to the R S MacDonald Charitable Trust and was sensitively restored in 2009.  The 1900 wood panelling in the entrance hall is one of the many interesting features of the property.
