A SPECTACULAR five-bed home has been released for sale by national housebuilder Lovell Homes, giving house hunters the chance to make their dream lifestyle a reality, nestled between the outstanding natural beauty of both the Lake District and the Cumbrian coastline.
Priced at £649,950, The Wordsworth at Roman Heights, is currently the most expensive home on sale in Cockermouth – a quaint market town on the edge of England’s largest and most well-known National Park – but far exceeds what is available just a few miles away within the park boundary.
With prices of comparable properties in the Lake District often exceeding seven figures, this is a rare opportunity for buyers to secure both their dream home and location. As a result, the development has also gained strong interest from those looking to relocate from London where the average house is listed at £667,587 – without the stunning backdrop. And, if you still need the occasional trip to the capital, trains from Penrith will get you to London Euston in just over three hours for as little as £45.
With energy efficiency becoming increasingly important, it’s worth noting that a new build home – even as large as the Wordsworth – can save you thousands of pounds on energy bills compared to an older equivalent, according to the Home Builders Federation.
The Wordsworth is a unique opportunity for anyone wanting to combine scenery with sustainability, from growing families wanting more adventure in their lives, to retiring couples looking for a more tranquil, market town, to younger buyers wanting to get more for their money in a lesser known, yet highly desirable, location.
