West End is one of the older streets in the town lined with a mixture of tall period town houses and character cottages.  No. 71 fronts the street and has a long South Easterly facing garden. Its modest frontage belies the accommodation within, offering a surprising number of quite sizeable rooms. The flagged entrance hall extends to light and airy fitted kitchen with a stable door to the garden beyond. A dining room branches from here with a log burning stove and there is a further sitting room with exposed ceiling beams. From the kitchen the property extends to an inner lobby which is currently shelved with books, separate wc, a light filled garden room, garden store, and stairs leading occasional bedroom 4/ study.. On the first floor there are two bedrooms (a double and a single) along with the house bathroom and from the landing stairs raise to the second floor and a lovely master bedroom with exposed cruck beams and velux windows boasting rooftop views.

This cottage has a long garden that starts from the property as a flagged patio. This continues, passing the same lean to garden store, green house and a timber framed shed. From here the flags turn to lawn with herbaceous beds and a cultivated patch for vegetable to its sides. The garden finishes with some more mature trees and a gateway allowing entry to a shared footpath that returns back to West End.
