Property Buying Agent in Saffron Walden

Working with a Buying Agent in Saffron Walden

Named in the top 8 places to live in the East of England, and located just a 50-minute car journey into London, it’s no surprise that a number of home buyers are flocking to Saffron Walden to secure their dream home.

A charming market town with beautiful rural countryside on its doorstep.  Far from the built-up modern party towns of Basildon and Brentwood, north and west Essex offer peaceful walking and cycling in beautiful rolling English countryside, and gorgeous ancient villages like Finchingfield, Wethersfield and Thaxted. But in terms of larger settlements, Saffron Walden has no peers in the county and is much closer to Cambridge both geographically and in terms of its feel.


Increasingly popular amongst those looking for a friendlier, community-led and more relaxed alternative to Cambridge, Saffron Walden is particularly well suited to bringing up a young family. Its gold-plated state and private schooling are complemented by a good population of ex-Londoners which ensure few would feel out of place here. The market square is especially beautiful, and the twice-weekly market puts Cambridge’s 7-day market to shame, whilst The Common is a lovely open green space adjacent to the centre, a popular family meeting place for a summer picnic. Rush hour traffic means nothing worse than a 10-minute delay here and there.

The town’s obvious drawback is connectivity to London. The town doesn’t have its own station, though there is a fast train from Audley End station that runs between Cambridge and London Liverpool Street, offering resident’s excellent commuter links to London’s financial district within 55 minutes.

Many property buyers are taking advantage of Saffron Walden’s excellent schools in the area. Namely Saffron Walden County High School (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) and independent schools include Dame Bradbury’s and Walden School – both with excellent academic results and attracting pupils that live as far as Cambridge.
