SJ3198SW BEACH LAWN 778-1/6/13 (North East side) 16/08/72 Nos.11 AND 12 Hapwood House (Formerly Listed as: BEACH LAWN Nos.1-15 (Consecutive))


Pair of large terraced houses (now integrated), forming part of row of 15 in interestingly varied but harmonious style. Mid to later C19; altered. White-painted stucco, slate roofs, stuccoed chimneys; cast-iron verandah. Italianate style. Double-depth plan, No.11 single-fronted and No.12 double-fronted, with back extensions. EXTERIOR: two-and-a-half storeys, 1:2+1:1 windows, a strongly articulated 5-bay composition in which No.12 breaks forward from No.11 and the left bay of each is a projected gabled wing with open-pedimental gable; with a 1st-floor string course and bracketed eaves and gables. The doorways (to the right and in the centre respectively) have Tuscan pilaster architraves with keyed entablatures, half-glazed doors with side-windows and matching overlights. No.11 has a 4-pane sash at 1st floor and a round-headed dormer to the attic, and its gabled wing to the left has a 3-storey canted bay with 4-pane sashes and hipped lead-clad roof extended as a canopy. No.12, except for coupled 4-pane sashes at 1st floor of the centre, has tripartite windows to all floors: those at ground floor being a rectangular bay to the left and a bow to the right, both with Tuscan pilasters and moulded cornices with blocking courses; those at 1st floor having cornices on consoles; a Venetian window at 2nd floor of the wing and 2 dormers in Venetian form. Tall corniced multiple-flue chimneys. Over the left bay window of each house is scrolled pierced enrichment. INTERIOR: not inspected. Adjoins No.10 the right (qv) and is linked to No.13 to the left (qv). Unlike all others in this block of 15 houses, this pair lacks a verandah. All the listed buildings in Beach Lawn, together with those in Adelaide Terrace, Bath Street, Marine Crescent and Marine Terrace, form a group in the Waterloo Conservation Area of Crosby.
