Lifestyle in Saffron Walden

Proving that Saffron Walden is one of the best places to live in the East of England, the sales office at Bloor Homes’ Mortimers Gate development has been inundated with enquiries from prospective buyers

The national housebuilder’s Home Exchange scheme is particularly popular with purchasers who are looking to relocate or upsize in this popular Essex location. There are currently a variety of stylish and contemporary properties available at the development, comprising from two-bedroom terraced homes, to four-bedroom detached homes.
The location of Mortimer’s Gate is one of the main features which is attracting buyers from across the country.  Just a short walk from the heart of the town named by the Sunday Times as one of the ‘best places to live in the UK 2018’, Saffron Walden tops the list because of its history, extensive selection of unique shops, fabulous independent cafes, restaurants and pubs.
Monika Hanlon, Regional Sales Director at Bloor Homes Eastern, said: “There has been a fantastic response from buyers to our Mortimers Gate development. 
“It’s no surprise so many growing families are interested in securing their ideal new build property in Saffron Walden. This medieval market town boasts a superb choice of great schools, including Saffron Walden County High School, which is rated outstanding by Ofsted.
“We have seen a significant rise in buyers who are using the Home Exchange scheme to relieve some of the stress associated with selling their existing property, and I would encourage anyone looking to buy a new home in this sought-after part of the country to visit our Sales Office.”
There is a range of newly released two and four-bedroom houses starting from £319,995. One of the properties available with either Home Exchange or Help to Buy is the stylish four-bedroom detached Wakehurst.
This impressive home features four spacious bedrooms, a garage and driveway with space for two vehicles. On the ground floor is a warm and inviting lounge and a stylish open plan kitchen/dining/utility area. The beautiful patio doors opening to the rear garden allow buyers to make the most of the outdoor space. There is also a downstairs cloakroom.
The first floor has two double bedrooms and a high specification family bathroom, complete with complimentary white ROCA sanitaryware. The modern master bedroom boasts a stylish en suite shower room and Hansgrohe chrome brassware.
