Listing Text

860/2/215 BEACH STREET
08-FEB-74 (West side)


House, probably originally part of a larger house later subdivided into three. Probably of C18 origin but refronted in the early to mid-C19. Brick, stuccoed with tiled roof and small brick chimneystack to the ridge and cemented large chimneystack to the rear.

PLAN: It appears from the roofline to have been originally part of a larger house with Nos. 171 and 175. It is of two storeys and attics with two windows to the principal front.

EXTERIOR: The north or entrance front has a large three-light dormer with six panes to each light, moulded cornice and end pilasters, providing a lookout to sea. The parapet has stone coping and the first floor windows are 12-pane sash windows in moulded architraves. The ground floor has a left side six-pane sash window with louvred wooden shutters secured by unusual iron catches in the shape of a sailor's head with straw hat. The right side doorcase has pilasters and cornice and a C20 door. There is a stuccoed plinth. The south side is gabled.

INTERIOR: Not inspected.

HISTORY: By the 1872 Ordnance Survey map No. 173 is shown in separate ownership from the adjoining properties. More recently, Nos. 173 and 175 were in the same ownership.


No. 173 Beach Street is listed in Grade II for the following principal reasons:

* No. 173 appears to have been part of an earlier possibly C18 house together with Nos. 171 and 175 (q.v.);
* It has an early to mid-C19 stuccoed front retaining sash windows and its seaside character is accentuated by the large three-light attic dormer providing a lookout over the sea and the iron shutter catches in the form of a sailor's head;
* It has strong group value with a number of listed buildings in a designated conservation area.
