Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Shortgrove Estate is located about 1 mile from the highly regarded village of Newport, with its range of local amenities and mainline station, and about a mile away from the mainline station at Audley End. For the commuter, the property is conveniently placed for access to the M11 motorway, with nearby Stansted Airport being located just off Junction 8 and the University City of Cambridge to the north. The nearby market town of Saffron Walden provides an excellent range of shopping and schooling, with various sporting and recreational facilities including an 18-hole golf course.

The Shortgrove Estate was one of the great Essex Estates along with its neighbour, the Audley End Estate. A substantial mansion (which was subsequently sold) was built in the 16th century and continuously improved by subsequent owners. In 1794, Capability Brown was commissioned to undertake work to the gardens and surrounding parkland. The Estate is approached via an imposing pair of wrought iron gates which provide access to an Adam style hump back bridge and a long, private, tree-lined driveway which meanders through the parkland, leading to Shortgrove Hall. There is additional access to the Estate off Newport Road towards Saffron Walden.
