Pickering is an attractive market town situated along the A170, Thirsk to Scarborough road. It is a short drive to the east coast and to the surrounding market towns of Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside and Malton. Malton has regular rail links to the City of York and Intercity service beyond. Pickering has a busy Monday Street market, a good selection of shops, schools and amenities which include doctors surgery, dentists and library and interesting places to visit such as the Beck Isle Museum, Pickering Castle and the North York Moors Steam Railway.

Westgate is an area of mixed property type, with both houses and period cottages running along the main road, and located within a few minutes walk of the market place in Pickering. No.71 is found at the far end of Westgate and was formally a shop until it was sold in 2004 and converted into 3 (a,b & c) self contained apartments. All of which have their own gardens to the rear.

71a occupies the first floor of the building with its own private ground floor entrance. It offers a light and airy sitting room that extends into an inner hall that is wide enough for a breakfast table. There is a modern fitted kitchen, fully tiled bath room with white suite, two double bedrooms and its own private garden area with timber framed shed.

The property might well suit a First time buyer or purchaser looking for a 'lock up & leave' second home. It also offers an excellent rental investment opportunity.
