Full descriptionIn the charming historic quarter of King's Lynn there are a terrace of small cottages in the only remaining wing to the Benedictine Monastery which preceded St. Margaret's Church sitting directly behind. The King's Lynn Preservation Trust restored the building dividing it up into six dwellings between 1970 and 1974, with the arched gateway being opened up in 1974.
Proceed under the archway and to the right is a quaint enclosed paved area between the minster's graveyard and the cottages with the patio gardens and entrances to each cottage.
This cottage, steeped in history, is full of original features from leaded arched windows, exposed brick and stone walls, to timber ceiling beams and the majestic full-height roof timbers with the A-frame, purlins and King post roof trusses on show in their full glory above the open-plan reception area upstairs. The ceiling height downstairs is surprisingly high giving a good sense of space.
The property is only a step from the water with its popular restaurants, and minutes away from the shops, the library, theatres and cinema, museums and galleries. There is a swimming pool close by and a sports centre as well. This old Hanseatic port of King's Lynn not only has a wealth of beautiful historic architecture but also has a strong connection with the Arts. The long-running King's Lynn Arts Festival features art exhibitions and classical concerts every summer and recently formed Festival Too provides music and entertainment for those with more contemporary musical tastes.
