738/7/170 DURNGATE STREET
08-MAY-75 (South side)
(Formerly listed as:
House, C18 and probably predating 1781.
MATERIALS: Rendered, with a pitched roof of modern pantiles, and moulded wooden eaves cornice.
PLAN: The front portion of the house is abutted by buildings on either side. The OS map of 1889 shows a rectangular plan, with a small courtyard at the centre of the eastern side. By 1929 the southern part of the building had been replaced by an outhouse; the current OS map shows a C-plan.
EXTERIOR: A two-storey, two-bay rendered house with a pitched roof of modern pantiles and a moulded eaves cornice. On the street elevation, the door opening (to right) is unornamented. The three windows bear sash frames; the ground-floor window has a moulded surround.
INTERIOR: Not inspected.
HISTORY: Durngate Street is shown as almost completely built up on both sides in Hutchins's map of 1771; though the street also contains later buildings, No. 20 Durngate Street is one of a varied group (Nos 18-20) thought to pre-date 1771.
REASONS FOR DESIGNATION: 20 Durngate Street is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural: Externally, a fairly complete example of a modest, two-storey Dorchester house of the C18
* Group Value: With adjacent houses at 18 and 19 Durngate Street, and with other listed buildings nearby
