Significant property in Ambleside sold for University

Acting on behalf of the University of Cumbria, we have completed the sale of Springfield, on Rydal Road in Ambleside. The substantial detached property was originally the home of Charlotte Mason, who founded the education college in the village, which now comprises part of the University. Springfield was most recently used as student halls of residence, but the property is to be returned to a private dwelling. The property formed part of a portfolio of surplus property in the county where we have been instructed to sell jointly with Michael CL Hodgson, chartered surveyors in Kendal. A number of the properties elsewhere in Ambleside and Penrith are also under offer and are due to complete shortly.
