7/10 The Nash
House. Circa 1600 with probable earlier remains. Altered 1831 and early
C20. Brick with stone dressings and tile roof. Two storeys with attics.
The south front is a balanced composition with two bays to each side of a
central two-storey porch. Each bay has a crow-stepped gable. The present
mullioned and transomed windows replace mullioned windows of 1831 shown in
a photograph in VCH. They are of three lights with transom except for
those on the ground floor of the middle bays and the first floor of the right-
hand bay, which are of four lights. The attic is lit by 3-light mullioned
windows. The porch has a cross-window on the first floor, a Tudor-arched
doorway, and a gable with coping and finials. Chimneys have diagonal shafts.
Interior: not accessible at time of survey (October 1986). Said to contain
remains of timber-framing. The dinining room and oak bedroom are said to
have oak panelling and plaster ceilings of c1600, with vine, rose, ash, oak
and thistle in ogee patterns. Oak bedroom said to have large painted mantel
of figures and strapwork dated 1598. Main stair said to be early C18, with
slim twisted and columnar balusters and carved tread-ends. (BoE, p 203;
VCH, Vol 3, p 430).
