History

Middle part of Velindre, an early C19 house probably with earlier origins now divided into 3. Bought in early C19 by Edward Jones I attorney, who lived at Llwynhywel, probably rebuilt for Edward Jones II, attorney, (1779-1844), 4 times mayor of Llandovery, recorded resident in 1836. Edward Jones II is rated for Velindre in 1836. The house was occupied c1854-68 by Captain (later Lt Col) David E Jones (1826-90), probably brother of Edward Jones III listed as owner 1866-8. Edward Jones moved to Danyrallt, nearby, in the later C19 and the house was tenanted by H P Wardell in the early 1890s. By 1899 owned and occupied Edward M Jones. Sold by the Jones family in the early C20. Mrs Mary Williams farmer listed in 1926, subdivided into 3 in the 1950s.
It would appear that No 2 may be pre C19 as it contains a roof-truss at lower level than the present roofs. No 1 comprises the former principal rooms and staircase, and No 3 the former kitchen and service rooms. An old photograph shows a veranda outside Nos 1 and 2 and a window in place of the door of No 2.

Exterior

House, painted stucco or roughcast, middle section of house now divided into 3, Nos 1 to 3 Felindre. Twostorey terrace-like long range of nine bays, divided 2-3-4, i.e. 2 bays to No 1, 3 bays to No 2, and 4 to No 3. Slate roofs. No 1 has a wing with canted end running E from rear N end. End chimneys to each section in yellow and black brick, later C19 to No 1, and C20 red brick to No 3, No 2 sharing stacks. First floor has nine 16-pane sashes right along, 3 to No 2, the third window set considerably lower and also in wider bay, marking a kind of division between the main house and No 3 the service range. Ground floor has floor-length 20-pane sashes to main rooms, one to left of No 1 and 2 in left 2 bays of No 2 which has a door (not aligned with window above) in third bay (replacing a small sash window). No 2 has a hipped-roofed parallel rear range.

Interior

Six-panel doors to both front and rear ranges. Front ground floor room
has 2 arched recess on N wall corresponding to similar recesses in S wall of No 1. No cornice, simple architrave to door. Loft has possibly C18 oak truss with collar cut to curve, set lower than the 2 trusses to N, indication of an earlier building rebuilt.

Reasons for Listing

Included as part of an earlier C19 gentry house, of group value with Nos 1 and 3. The house was of an unusual linear form, and retains good Georgian detail externally.
