    Loving what we do since 1988

    Countryside Estates agents love what they do and pride themselves on having a unique perspective on the entire process of matching people with homes. From the little things we notice that others miss, to the communities we know like the back of our hands, we rejoice in local detail.

    Other agents may see customers but we see people. And where others see houses, we see homes.

    What we do 

    Residential Sales

    Our way of doing things just works. It's all in the detail, from the unique approach we take to marketing each property, to the care and attention we give to buyers and sellers alike.


    New Houses

    Just move in and start enjoying your home! New homes are a specialist area and one that is very different to the residential resale market. There are some real benefits to buying a new home, not least, everything is done for you and you can just move in and start enjoying your home, without a long list of jobs to do.

    New homes can be bought once built, but very often sales are made off-plan. This gives you time to prepare your finances and often means you can have a say in the fixtures and fittings and how the property is decorated.

    We have a selection of new homes for sale at any one time and we are constantly adding new ones. For more information do contact us.


    Country Homes

    It takes expert knowledge and an innate love for the countryside to work in this specialist field.

    Whether you're looking for somewhere to indulge your passion for outdoor pursuits, a working estate, or you're simply looking to escape the city and enjoy a more relaxed pace of life in an English rural village - our team will get to the root of it. We will work with our partners across the country in the Relocation Agent Network to seek out suitable properties, one of which might just be the home you have been dreaming of. Call us today for an informal chat about your search for a home in the country.
