Village home since mid-16th century
Built in the mid-16th century, Gable End was remodelled by the Georgians.
The Grade II listed Rickinghall house has been the subject of tasteful and sympathetic updating in recent years resulting in a beautifully presented home of immense character and an internal.
The 14ft 6in by 15ft 7in drawing room has an 8ft wide inglenook fireplace with heavy bressumer beam over, raised pamment hearth and a fitted log burning stove.
The room also has exposed studwork and ceiling timbers.
There is a 13ft 9in by 12ft 10in dining room, again with exposed studwork, which has an open Victorian-style fireplace with tiled inserts. The fireplace is flanked to either side by built-in storage cupboards.
The pamment-floored kitchen has recently been remodelled with a range of bespoke units with wooden preparation surfaces.
They conceal a freestanding dishwasher and washing machine, integrated fridge unit and larder units. There is space for a cooking range.
On the first floor all the bedrooms have exposed studwork.
The main bedroom is 16ft 7in by 15ft 3in with generous ceiling height and windows to front and rear. It has the original open fireplace with raised pamment hearth and a built-in wardrobe.
Bedroom two is 13ft 7in by 12ft 8in and has an ornate Georgian fireplace with pamment hearth. Bedroom three is 11ft by 10ft 5in.
Also on this floor is a bathroom with panelled bath and a fitted shower over.
A second floor attic bedroom is 23ft 7in by 10ft, into the eaves.
