Why the messy Heritage Listings Here?

Launceston Local Heritage Register mis-matches

If you read the LCC heritage listings carefully you will see the word 'State' meaning State Heritage Listing such as this:
But I have cross-referenced the Tasmanian State Heritage Registered properties immediately before this listing such as:
"THR #4155 Townhouse 3 ELPHIN RD LAUNCESTON 7250 Permanently Registered Launceston City Council"
For example, the LCC lists 6 Elphin Road as 'State' registered, but the THR does not, only 3 Elphin Road is listed.
  1. 4155 Townhouse 3 ELPHIN RD LAUNCESTON 7250 Permanently Registered Launceston City Council
  2. 4156 Townhouse 5 ELPHIN RD LAUNCESTON 7250 Permanently Registered Launceston City Council
  3. 4157 Conjoined Townhouses 9-9A ELPHIN RD LAUNCESTON 7250 Permanently Registered Launceston City Council
  • Thus the LCC Heritage Schedule lists 81 Elphin Road properties as State registered, but the actual State Tasmanian Heritage Register only lists 30 such Elphin Road properties,
    of which they wish to remove another 10 entries listed below:
    (All of which ten listings are Nationally Heritage Registered, being on the Elphin Street Curve detailed below)
  • So does this mean that 81 - 30 = 51 Elphin Road Properties have already been removed from the Tasmanian Heritage Register?

  • Launcestonians, National Trust members, it is time to act!

Warning! Tasmania's Heritage Council is preparing (16 December 2015) to remove the following entries from the Tasmanian Heritage Register:

  1. Elphin Road, 21, Launceston (THR#4163)

'Kilmarnock', 66 Elphin Road, Newstead

In 1903 Searell was designing Kilmarnock for John Ingles, the only two storey building in the group; Its situation on the high side of the road reinforces the dramatic sweep of the design of this imposing building.[6]
  • A two storey brick residence, very skilfully exploiting a two storey timber verandah to create a very dramatic form which appears to pivot on a corner conical roofed projecting bay window. One of Launceston's finest Federation houses. (REGISTER OF TWENTIETH CENTURY ARCHITECTURE)

This is a very fine single Storey Federation period house, brick with tiled hipped roof, with an octagonal mansard roofed tower above entry and onion dome above circular bay.

  • There is an elaborate timber balustraded verandah enclosing two sides of the house. Inside at the intersection of the corridors there is an octagonal dome with four Italianate niches set into diagonal walls. The centre of the dome being an elegant stained glass dome light.external image Lemana%252520Roof%252520space%252520by%252520Miles%252520Lewis.jpg
  • Lemana is an outstanding example of a Federation style mansion.
  • Important because of the quality of the building, the richness of its forms and details and their intact nature.
  • The excellence of the stained glass work, alone, is worthy of merit. Stables at rear and original cast iron picket fence compliment main house.
  • Condition and Integrity: In spite of being used as class rooms, building is in excellent condition apart from insensitive additions at rear. - Australian Heritage Database id=12404; THR ID #4179

Fairlawn

  • Fairlawn is significant as a house, complete with contents, in a garden setting, which provides a comprehensive document of domestic and social life of a substantial middle class family in early twentieth century Launceston.
  • Fairlawn is a single-storey Federation Queen Anne style house set in extensive gardens, an integral part of the whole property design. The house is built of brick, dichromatic in style with red bricks and white brick detailing, the whole tuck pointed. There is a wooden floored front porch and verandah round two sides set on stone footings. The red corrugated iron roof has tall square chimneys and flying gables with timber detailing set over square bay windows. The house was one of the earliest to be electrically wired and retains almost all its original fittings.
    The house is a noteworthy example of the Queen Anne style of architecture, with an elaborate exterior generally characteristic of the style, and a particularly rich interior design. Tasmanian houses of such quality were rare in the Federation period.
Fairlawn and Garden
Fairlawn and Garden

  • Fairlawn Garden is National Heritage listed
    Fairlawn Garden is National Heritage listed

    The house complete with the decorative treatments of its rooms, their furnishings and fittings is indicative of the style and taste of the Federation years.
    The personal possessions of the Sutton family, room plan (often with the original room function retained) and ephemera of domestic living provide a tangible illustration of family life and domestic arrangements in the period.
  • The house has important historical associations as the family home of the Suttons, a prominent Launceston family. The family has maintained the house sympathetically and it still contains in its fabric much information on domestic technology of the early twentieth century, including the social attitudes to these matters.

  • The house also contains a small collection of local memorabilia and artefacts, illustrating contemporary social perceptions of the locality and its historic interest.
  • The garden is historically significant for demonstrating a late nineteenth century Victorian period Villa garden and is aesthetically significant for its high quality of design. The garden at Fairlawn is worthy of separate recognition.
