Country houses & estates for sale
Knight Frank National Country Department
The national Country House team is the leading agent with the largest number of negotiators based in London.
"On the back of an increase in country property sales of 3.4% in 2014, there is very real evidence that confidence has returned to the country property market. The ripples are spreading out from London with those houses within commuting range showing most growth. The first half of 2015 will see a lower supply of houses at the top end coming to the market reflecting in built concerns about election results; however, records show that sales volumes do not fall away in election years. We are confident that country property will continue its recovery whether being sold publically or 'off market'. In 2014 Knight Frank sold just over a third of property over £5m without it ever being advertised."
