Make yourself at home at Speckled Wood
Named after a British butterfly, Speckled Wood is a collection of new homes ideally located on the edge of the historic city of Carlisle. This fantastic development of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes together with two-bedroom apartments is perfect for first-time buyers, growing families, and those looking to take the next step up the housing ladder.
A new home to the southeast of the city gives you excellent access to the M6 for journeys south to Birmingham via Penrith, Lancaster, and Preston. You'll also be well placed for Scotland, with the M6 becoming the A74(M) at the border just 8 miles away. Carlisle is a thriving city offering you all the amenities and facilities that you could want. It's the county town of Cumbria and it's been an important settlement since Roman times. It's very much a city for today now, with excellent shopping, entertainment, and leisure options.
