Saffron Walden Is A Popular Choice

If you are looking to move to a new area, you have plenty of options. It can be difficult to narrow down your choices, but at Intercounty, we are always here to help.

We can tell you what we think of the local areas, but we will also show you what others think. This helps you form a more balanced opinion, and we think you will love Saffron Walden. Going by the many articles and positive reviews of the place, you will agree Saffron Walden is a popular choice.

Saffron Walden has a lot going for it

The Standard looked at a range of places to stay and when considering where people should buy a home in Essex, Saffron Walden was listed first. Their study places the average price of property in Saffron Walden as £421,000; and its key headlines for the area include:

  • Saffron Walden boasting of an award-winning market

  • Stunning timber-framed cottages

  • Tremendous schools

These factors have enticed homeowners from London. There has been a lot of talk about people leaving the capital, and there is no getting away from the fact that remote working has created a greater sense of freedom for many people.

In this regard, Saffron Walden is an excellent choice.

The Standard said; ”The medieval town centre is gorgeous to look at: packed with cute cafes, restaurants and independent boutiques. Make friends at one of the tennis clubs, work out at half a dozen gyms and enjoy plenty of long country walks exploring pretty villages within Saffron Walden’s hinterland.”

The proximity to Cambridge, just 16 miles away, and being located 13 miles from Stansted Airport were key bonuses in the review. The fact that London, Audley End Station, is less than an hour away is also a great feature that will appeal to many people.

People are searching for homes in Saffron Walden

It should also be noted that in 2021, the EssexLive website listed two locations in Saffron Walden in their top five places to live in Essex, although this list was driven by Rightmove property searches.

Radwinter and Littlebury were the most popular Essex destinations for property buyers, and this shows that many people are keeping tabs on what Saffron Walden has to offer.

Littlebury was described as being; “located in North-west Essex and close to the market town of Saffron Walden, this quiet village would be perfect for those looking for a more peaceful and quiet existence away from the rush of the City.”

Radwinter was described as; “It is easy to see why Radwinter is a popular choice. It has a rich history with a 700-year-old church, gorgeous manor houses and is in close proximity to Saffron Walden, which has an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools.”

At Intercounty, we love Saffron Walden and truly believe it is one of the finest locations a homebuyer could choose. However, we know some people will say we have a biased opinion. Therefore, it is great to see the local area perform so well in the eyes of others, and in the actions of people looking for a home.
