Full Details

There has been a Chapel on the site of St Anne’s since 1550, with the present building replacing a wooden structure in 1812.


In 1854 the newly built and much larger St Mary’s became the Parish Church and St Anne’s was subsequently developed by a local builder in the 1980’s creating five highly popular dwellings.  The building was interestingly and sympathetically renovated for which it received an award from the Civic Trust. Number 3 is a beautifully presented and generously proportioned four- bedroom property spread over three floors with the fourth bedroom on the second floor having character features. The present owners have upgraded Candleberry to a high specification including double glazing throughout and gas central heating. The property is currently used as a holiday let with Lakelovers generating an average gross income of circa £40,000. Candleberry is for sale with all furnishings and forward bookings. Enjoying attractive views of Wansfell and Fairfield Horseshoe. The property has the benefit of allocated parking within the church grounds. 
St Anne’s Court is within the older part of Ambleside known as Chapel Hill and How Head, designated as part of the Conservation Area.  It is conveniently positioned close to the centre of this highly popular Lakeland town, with all amenities close at hand including shops, banks, post office, restaurants, doctors etc. There are endless fell and country walks from the door step.
