Description
Saffron Walden is an historic market town with a magnificent Parish Church, numerous period properties and a wide tree-lined High Street. An extensive range of shops, schools, social and sporting amenities are all accessible within the town and the Golf Course and Sports Centre lie on the town's outskirts. Road links to London and Cambridge (16 miles) are accessible at Junctions 8 and 9 of the M11. Train services to London (Liverpool Street - 57 mins) run from Audley End Station about 2 miles away.

DEBDEN ROAD Debden Road is an impressive and unique Grade II Listed Victorian Gothic detached house. Built circa 1870, the property was stylistically influenced by the local work of architect William Beck, with the unusual variety of the brick detailing suggestive of a master bricklayer's exemplar. Standing in an attractive walled garden and conveniently located close to the High Street, town centre and two primary schools, this is a wonderful 4 bedroom character home.
