15 King Street is a fine Grade II* Listed merchants house dating from about the early 16th century with various alterations throughout the ensuing years. It is a good example of an L-planned hall house with carriage arch to the left. The house is referred to in Pevsner who also comments that King Street is the street richest in pleasant houses..... nearly every home repays attention, but few are entirely as they seem externally. This can certainly be said of No. 15 as when one has entered through the archway the house and courtyard with long gardens are effectively hidden from the road. The house extends over two main floors with, in addition, fully useable converted attics that can be additional bedrooms or a self-contained flat and a games room. The overall plot is about 365 ft from King Street to the river and offers a total area of about 0.34 acres (stms). The house has many original features including extensive large framed panelling and the gardens have been laid out in a compartmentalised fashion to provide interest. The house extends to about 5,500 sq ft (gross internal) and within the grounds there is provision for ample parking (a rarity in the town).
The house is ideally positioned in the historic heart of King's Lynn making it ideal for those wanting a town centre home within easy reach of a wide range of local amenities. King's Lynn has mainline electrified rail links direct to Kings Cross London, taking only about 1 hour and 40 minutes. There are also stops available to Ely and Cambridge. The delightful surrounding countryside and North Norfolk coastal villages are within easy reach.
