The House of Glack is a category B listed period property that has 18 rooms over four floors and plenty of original features including 18th-century mantelpieces, stone staircases, sash windows and open hearths.
The detached property, which has been described as “charming” by Auction House, is set in mature wooded grounds with a tree-lined single-track drive leading all the up to the traditional property.
The home was built by the Elphinstone family as a private residence but it was then taken over by new owners in 1780 when a second mansion, called New House of Glack was built nearby.
Both mansions were acquired by Aberdeen’s Royal Cornhill Hospital in 1888 and the New House of Glack, which was renamed as the House of Daviot, became the County Asylum.
The original mansion was then renovated and transformed into nursing accommodation with a three-storey rear wing extension added in 1934.

The hospital closed its doors for the last time in 1994 with both mansions remaining empty for an extended period of time before being transformed into private homes.
The House of Daviot was converted into five individual flats and the House of Glack was turned back into a residential property.
The property is now available for the first time at auction and has both original and modern features.

The home spans four floors with seven modern bedrooms, seven reception rooms, four smaller rooms, six bathrooms, five additional WCs and two kitchens.
The first floor is a prime investment opportunity and could be transformed into a self-contained flat as it comes with its own lounge, utility room, kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, shower room, and three bedrooms.
The rear wing, which is accessed from the ground, first and second floors includes a fully equipped pole dancing studio situated on the ground floor.
The property has been on the market since 2020 but has been repeatedly reduced from £750,000 over the last three years.
The price is now set at a bargain £400,000 which means one lucky bidder could potentially secure themselves a huge property for under half a million pounds.
House of Glack goes up for sale by public auction with Auction House Scotland on November 2.
