(North Side)

No 34 (Dynevor House)
TL 0338 1/22 17.7.51.


Formerly known as Paunfort Lodge. Originally the mansion of the prosperous
Simon Urlin, who owned the large garden subsequently annexed to Avenue
House (see No 20 above), the avenue in fact leading to No 34. 3-storey
house of 1725 built in red brick, chequered with blue. Finely moulded
brick cornice below a plain parapet with stone coping. Eastern (entrance)
front: 7 windows in broad flush frames. Lower edges of the plain red flat
arches over the West of the 2 upper floors are slightly recessed to form
a series of delicate curves (of similar treatment at No 1 Bedford Street,
above). The brick cornice only continues round the North, East and South
sides. On the Western (garden) front above the 1st floor is a boldly projecting
wooden cornice with large modillions. Above this cornice, the 2nd floor
is only indicated at either end by 2 blank windows, while over the 3 central
windows the parapet drops in a curve to a much lower level. Southern (street)
front has 3 windows, of which the central one on each floor is blank.
Original door (in centre of East front), with boldly fielded panels and
brass furniture, is set between panelled reveals in a finely carved wooden
frame: fluted pilasters lead to an elaborate classical entablature with
triglyphs and modillions.

Nos 34 and 36, Little Dynevor, Nos 1 to 7 (consec) (Feoffee Almshouses)
form a group with Parish Church of St Andrews.
