Westgate, as the name suggests, is the main street running through the western side of Pickering. It is flanked with a mixture of property type but the majority is that of older terraced houses and cottages. No.38 fronts the main road in an area with deep grass verges and a line of mature trees. The property is believed to date back to the 1870's and is an excellent example of a Victorian town house with well proportioned rooms and high ceilings. No.38 has the enviable benefit of a large south facing garden that extends to Firthlands Road. Here there is a two storey barn that is currently utilised for garaging and having the potential to convert into additional accommodation.
The accommodation to the main house is over two floors with an attractive entrance hall offering doors to a further 3 reception rooms and a downstairs shower room. The newly fitted kitchen has double doors that open out into the rear garden as well as linking to a separate utility/boot room. From here a door opens to the side of the property and across its passage to a stone outbuilding offering an abundance of storage, utility facilities and a "gardening loo". From the front entrance hall a turned staircase raises to a sizeable landing accessing the four bedrooms and newly fitted house bathroom.
The large, South facing, rear garden is down mostly to lawn with a nature pond and through the privet arch extends to a productive orchard with a footpath passing an antique telephone box through to the barn at the end of the garden. This offers garaging on its ground floor and has had its upstairs partially converted to offer the potential of an annexe or studio. There is also a gated drive for two cars off Firthlands Road.
