6/71 Nastend House
Formerly Nastend Court, home of the Clutterbuck family. Late C16,
with front wing of C17, altered in C18 and C20, single storey C20
wing to left not of special interest. Partially timber-framed
upper storey, faced in roughcast, with C17 ashlar facing to ground
floor and to whole of front gable and front of east end. Stone
slate roof remains on gable and on front of east end, remainder in
double Roman tiles. Nearly central stone ridge stack and large
ashlar external stack to rear of right side, probably of early C17.
Single range of 2 storeys and attic with projecting front gable.
Mixed fenestration: one 4-light diamond wood mullion survives on
rear wall of first floor room to right; stone mullion leaded
casements with square hoodmoulds were added in C17 but only a few
survive, remainder having been sashed in C18, mostly 12-pane and
with wide triple sash to ground floor right. Some C20
fenestration, mostly on rear elevation. Entrance in corner to
right of front gable, with C20 porch and door. Right hand return
has jetty at attic level with moulded timber bressumer and probably
originally also had first floor jetty. Upper floors of this wall
in close-studded timber framing, only visible on inside.
Interior retains many original features from C16 and C17.
Generally compartmented chamfered beam ceilings. External stack
has large stone wide 4-centred arched fireplaces on ground and
first, that on first floor having intertwined initials of W and M,
Walter Clutterbuck and wife. First floor room to right has curved
chamfered brackets to main cross beams, continued down in chamfered
post against vertical side beams; internal timber frame wall has
carpenter's assembly marks clearly incised. Roof has arched wind
braces in pairs along most of length, and many contemporary plank
doors in timber framed partition walls.
