- elegant and well proportioned reception rooms, high ceilings and sash windows enhancing the natural light;

- South facing sitting room with double doors opening out to a large courtyard garden to bring the "outside in" and offering excellent adaptable space for entertaining, with doors interlinking to a separate dining room;

- half landing with an external door set within the wall to the front of the house;
- pretty master bedroom enjoying an easterly aspect and benefitting from the morning sun, with views across the Park towards the town centre. Fitted with a range of built-in wardrobes and with a well appointed contemporary style en suite bath/shower room;
- 3 further double bedrooms with built-in cupboards and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.

The Garden
The Little House enjoys the luxury of an intriguing and unusually large landscaped town garden of about 0.32 acres, which lies to the rear and creates a well screened oasis of year round colour and interest.

Several distinct areas, including a flagstone courtyard with a pond and a good sized lawn, are interlinked by paths, with a number of relaxing corners for enjoyment of the lovely surroundings.

The wall to the North provides enough shelter to sustain Australian inspired-plantings of specimen tree ferns, phormium and palms. The remainder of the garden is bounded by high hedging giving a good level of privacy to all sides and supports a wide variety of shrubs and trees, including acers, azaleas, oak, silver birch, a graceful weeping willow, camellia, tree peonies, fig, magnolia, roses, clipped holly and yew hedging and colourful herbaceous borders.

Parking:
A gravelled driveway provides a generous parking and turning area, in front of a garage.

The Calverley Park boundary wall on the North side of the property is Grade II listed. It must, therefore, be assumed that The Little House, being curtilage listed, would require listed buildings consent for any works.
