Residence for H.E. Beasley Esq., St. Charles St., Victoria, B.C.


Item is an architectural drawing by Samuel Maclure prepared for H.E. Beasley, Esq. of Victoria, B.C.

943 St. Charles Street, Victoria, B.C.

Plans, elevations and details. Two-storey house with attic and basement. The basement contains a servant's room, laundry room and a space reserved for a future billiard room. The ground floor comprises a veranda, vestibule, hall, living room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, larder and side-door vestibule with adjoining lavatory (wash basin only). On the second floor are planned a hall, five bedrooms and bathroom. A preliminary drawing set shows an attic containing two bedrooms and a storeroom, but a comparable drawing is not part of the working set. The basement walls appear to be of concrete below ground and wood framing above, but some elevations seem to specify a stone basement. The wood-frame construction of the rest of the structure is finished with roughcast on the first floor and half timbering on the second. Working drawings are signed by John Hepburn and H.E. Beasley.
