This fine and prestigious family house forms the centre portion of what is also known as "Underfell", originally a substantial detached house and one of the most impressive of its type in the area. Underfell was built circa 1865 for John Jowett Wilson, Mayor of Kendal, who made his fortune in the wool trade. The house was subsequently divided in about 1953 into three dwelling houses known as 1, 2 and 3 Underfell, now more commonly referred to as 13, 15 and 17 Greenside.

From Kendal town centre proceed up Allhallows Lane, opposite Kendal Town hall. Continue up Beast Banks and into Greenside. Pass the "green" on the left and continue past the crossroads beyond.

Park immediately in front of the house.
The property occupies a delightfully secluded location at the end of a private driveway, shared with just four other houses accessed directly off Greenside, one of Kendal's most sought after and attractive residential areas. Greenside is located towards the eastern periphery of Kendal and yet is within walking distance of the town centre. Other nearby amenities include Kendal Golf Club and Serpentine Woods.
The historic market town of Kendal is renowned as being the gateway to the Lake District and is well placed for junctions 36 to 38 of the M6 motorway and for Oxenholme railway station for the London to Glasgow West Coast line.
