If you’re looking for a property to downsize to, or for retirement, than why not take a look at a new development of high-quality apartments in a popular Lake District town.

Created from the recent conversion of a guest house in Ambleside, the properties have been completely renovated, extended and refurbished.

The four residential apartments now available have been developed to modern building specifications with high insulation levels and double glazing.

The majority have attractive fell views towards Wansfell Pike at the front and Loughrigg to the rear, with the upper-floor apartments also enjoying stunning views towards Fairfield Horseshoe.

The apartments provide deceptively spacious accommodation with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and semi open-plan living/kitchen/diners.

They benefit from a light and airy aspect due to large windows and high ceilings and have the advantage of a private front entrance and access to the communal lift, as well as private designated off-road parking.

The apartments are for sale with 10-year warranties and new 999-year leases, and some local occupancy conditions apply.

They are located in the centre of Ambleside, on Compston Road, with easy level access to all amenities including a wide variety of shops and restaurants, Rothay Park playing fields and sporting facilities, doctors, library and churches, plus fell and country walks from the doorstep.

Additionally Compston Street has a residents’ parking scheme in operation.

The apartments are ideal as main residences for people wanting to downsize or retire into a high-specification property with attractive and quality fittings.

For peace of mind, they offer a low-maintenance environment within the town centre.

Smallwood Apartments, Compston Road, Ambleside, are for sale from £275,000 from Matthews Benjamin, tel. 015394 32220.
