Full description

A fantastic opportunity to acquire a very well known property set close to King's Lynn's historic Pilot Street on Chapel Lane, adjacent to the stunning St Nicholas church with the added benefit of a town centre location off street parking space and garaging facilities. The house gained its rather curious name of 'The Exorcists House' from an earlier house on the site, which was occupied by a member of the St Nicholas clergy, a well know exorcist. Dated 1635, the house is a joy to behold, having plain tiled roofs at different heights, a stunning Dutch gable to the north side and a fine example of a stone mullioned casement window to the first floor bedroom. Inside, the property has also retained many period features including original flooring, large open fireplaces and winding staircase. The property consists of sitting room, study area, bathroom and kitchen/dining room with two bedrooms to the first floor with an ensuite shower room. There is a courtyard garden and aforementioned off street parking and garage. Viewing is highly recommended to view this 'one off' chance to own a stunning period property in the heart of King's Lynn.

KING'S LYNN Located on the banks of the River Ouse, the popular town of King's Lynn is steeped in maritime history, with its fishing port still widely used today. From the much filmed old medieval centre around St Margaret's Church to the newly redeveloped and pedestrianised Vancouver Shopping Centre. The town has an excellent variety of shops, supermarkets, places to eat, ten-pin bowling alley, swimming pool, football club, cinema, theatre and three impressive churches. There are many services within the town including the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, police station, fire station, primary schools, three secondary schools, college and a library. The town holds weekly markets and many events throughout the year. King's Lynn is connected to the local cities of Norwich and Peterborough via the A47 and to Cambridge via the A10. There is a mainline rail link via Cambridge to London King's Cross, approx 1 hour and 40 minutes. The Sandringham Estate is about 5 miles away with attractive walks through the woods. Slightly further away is the North Norfolk Coastline with its beautiful long, sandy beaches.
