WOOLMARKET HOUSE - GRADE II*
A breath-taking newly converted contemporary home in a historic town building.
A private residence of 3570 sqft (approx) offering three incredible reception rooms and up to four first and second floor bedrooms. The property dates to mid-C15 and is simply bursting with original architectural details. The entrance has an ornate carved oak door understood to date to 1345 which is set in a stone arch entrance flanked by Tuscan columns. This leads to an entrance vestibule with flagstone floor with concealed plant room and door to the house. The first reception room is entirely panelled and set with a new stone flooring, there is an original moulded bridging beam, window to front, staircase and door to the study/snug which has second door to the front, window and door to rear stairs. At the rear the kitchen, dining and family room needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, this triumph of classic architecture meeting contemporary living has created a room which is sure to the be the hub of the house. It measures 9.5m x 5.1m and is laid to stone flooring with fitted kitchen, two fireplaces, one with fitted wood-burner and central dining and seating area. The whole room is superbly naturally lit via double aspect windows including a huge original timber mullion. Interestingly, the house was once home to the famous artist Gustav Metzger who used the room as his studio and the developer has given a subtle nod to this with the installation of three prints from the National Portrait Gallery of the artist at work in the room. Furthermore to the ground floor there is a wc, cloak cupboard and access to two courtyard gardens including rear access.
The staircase in the study leads to the large landing where there is a bedroom, staircase to second floor and door which leads to a gallery and room containing one of most important ancient architectural features in Kings Lynn. This magnificent front first-floor room has three crown-post trusses and roof structure exposed. The east wall bears a chimney-stack and carved stone fire surround. This versatile room we imagine will form the master bedroom however it also would be a very impressive reception room. The C-17 gallery (the last C-17 gallery to survive in Lynn) has 13 pegged collars exposed and is wonderful to examine. Furthermore there is a shower room, third bedroom with en-suite bathroom and fantastic views over St. Nicholas Chapel. Lastly a second floor bedroom with en-suite and small roof terrace. A total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Outside there is a private courtyard, a second courtyard provides pedestrian access to the rear (shared with neighbours).
