SJ3198SW BEACH LAWN 778-1/6/18 (North East side) No.17
House. Probably 1867 [Pevsner]; altered. Red brick in Flemish bond with some sandstone dressings, steeply-pitched slate roof with broad fishscale bands and red cockscomb ridge tiles. Eccentric High Victorian Gothic style. Irregular double-depth plan. EXTERIOR: 2 low storeys, 2 unequal bays, asymmetrical, the wider 1st bay gabled and the narrow 2nd bay with a small gable over it, both gables with stepped coping. The left has a wide 2-storey canted bay window which has 4 stone-mullioned segmental-pointed lights at ground floor and over this a series of 4 amorphous stepped brick arches; a 4-light window at 1st floor with columns at the angles; and a hipped fishscale slate roof. The right-hand bay has a wide segmental-pointed 3-light transomed window at ground floor, with a glazed door in the centre and leaded stained glass in the top lights; and at 1st floor a small canted oriel on brackets. Left return (to Harbord Road) is entrance front. INTERIOR: not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: owned or occupied by one Dr Drysdale who installed heating and ventilation equipment which is said to be still in situ [Pevsner]. Adjoins No.16 to the right (qv), a pair in free Gothic style forming an interesting foil to the large Italianate group to the right (Nos 1-15 consec, qv). 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.
