William H Brown selling ‘The Exorcist’s House’

'Spooktacular’ house for sale

Estate agency William H Brown is offering home buyers a rare opportunity to purchase of piece of history.  Known locally as ‘The Exorcist’s House’, 7 Chapel Lane is one of King’s Lynn’s most historic properties being the former home of a member of the clergy from nearby St Nicholas’ Chapel who would perform exorcisms in the late middle ages.   The property is also connected to a defining moment in King’s Lynn’s history where the last exorcism to have been carried out in the house led to a witch being burnt in the Tuesday Market Place.

The Grade II listed cottage, which is on the market for £220,000 and set in the heart of the popular market town, is believed to have been built in the 1300s and renovated in 1635.  Now comprising two bedrooms with an en-suite to the master, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, family bathroom and a courtyard garden, the property also retains many original features such as exposed beam work and an inglenook fireplace. 

“We are thrilled to bring to market this wonderful and unique home which is steeped in local history,” says Paul Nobbs, Assistant Manager at William H Brown King’s Lynn.  “The property defies its local name and legend and today offers the buyer a delightful and characterful cottage in a lovely central location next to St Nicholas’ Chapel.”
