Established in Windermere in 1993 by the late David Benjamin and Peter Matthews, both local property experts. Matthews Benjamin has since earned an excellent reputation based on trust, expertise and care that has been developed from a family business run by only local people with an extensive knowledge and love of the local area. In 2006, Andrew Kneale joined the company as partner with David Benjamin, bringing with him a wealth of experience and the expansion into setting up the Fine & Country network for prestigious properties across the South Lakes and North Lancashire. Today, we have proudly established a stronghold of four offices spread across the Lake District and North Lancashire, offering quality services for both residential and commercial sales. Our dual branding of Matthews Benjamin and Fine & Country has allowed us to create a specialist synergy between all levels of the market and we are proud of our unrivalled reputation.
We are strategically set in key locations to facilitate the sale, purchase or/and let of properties within a significant part of the North West Region. Covering the Lake District National Park, now awarded a world heritage site by Unesco, part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty our portfolio of properties arguably covers some of the most beautiful places in the UK.
