OUR APPROACHThe department difference
Local prime experience
When it comes to expertise we don’t compromise. At The Country House Department, we have years of experience selling some of the finest country houses in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Warwickshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Somerset and Northamptonshire.
Deal exclusively with our founding and regional directors
We think the person selling your house should be the same person you’ve taken the time to show around. Our founders and regional directors will be the only points of contact from instruction to completion. That means they’ll personally conduct every viewing and give you immediate feedback.
Immersive marketing methods
We don’t just show your property, we showcase what it means to live there. By bringing your home to life with drone footage, video content and virtual tours, great storytelling and glimpses of local country life, we reach buyers in more captivating ways.
Capturing your home in the best light
Perfunctory. That’s how we’d describe traditional property photography. We think good visual storytelling is essential when selling. Our Creative Director has a real passion for his craft, creating the kind of richly-lit, atmospheric imagery that perfectly suits country houses.
The commission model can feel opaque and outdated. At The Country House Department, we use a simple, transparent set-rate structure instead. No double standards, no hidden costs.
Leading London exposure
We’re an official affiliate of The London Broker. Linked to many of the Capital’s most prolific estate agents, their network gives you unparalleled access to London buyers with their sights set on a country property.
Choose a more proactive way to sell. As well as listing on Rightmove and our website, we actively talk to buyers and use social media marketing to promote country homes in a highly visual and targeted way.
More for your investment
We think it’s more important that your home is front-and-center. Not ours. Free from the high street and the inefficiency of corporate estate agency, we’re able to offer a more personalised service; investing more of our time into getting your home noticed.
Complimentary buying advice
Good service doesn’t stop with the sale. Once you’ve found the house to buy, we’ll even offer purchase advice, give you our opinion and negotiate on your behalf.
