Country houses, estates & mansions 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.
The 30 strong department has over 300 combined years' experience and is divided into teams that cover the UK, Ireland and Channel Islands. We are unique in that we have a dedicated team who deal with the top end of the market, liaising with our Global High Net Worth team.
This is supported by our specialist International Desks to include Russian, Indian and Far Eastern desks. Knight Frank's national Country Department has an unrivalled knowledge of the national country house, farm and estate markets.
"The last quarter, July, August and September, have seen average prices in the Country House market rise by 0.8%. This is an encouraging sign as it is the strongest rate of growth since 2010. It is a tale of “swings and roundabouts” with areas closer into town such as prime Virginia Water, Berkhamsted and Cobham markets reporting growth of anything between 2.3% and 3.2% whilst South West and the Midlands show increases of 0.3% and 0.4%. Growth continues to be focused on the price bracket up to £2 million. It may be a brave forecast but we feel that the price differential between London and the Country is at its greatest and now may be the time to buy your country property, taking advantage of the sale of your London house if you have one. Confidence is returning and is working from the bottom upwards."
Rupert Sweeting, Department Head
The team works very closely with our network of local offices and the 244 offices across 43 countries. This allows us to move buyers around counties, the country and the world and ensures your property receives the widest possible audience to achieve the highest possible price.
