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

II* GV

2. 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.
