Now is the time to move and Hampshire is the county to move to!

The government’s campaign to #keepthecountrymoving appears to have been a success. Whether the current levels of activity can be attributed to the season, the weather, the recent announcements on stamp duty, a desire to move having been forced to stay put for so long, or a combination of all these factors, the end result is that the country appears to be on the move. Agents across the country are reporting exceptionally high levels of activity in sales and rentals.

Much of the interest is from families currently living in London. Hampshire has always been a desirable county with its proximity to London and the south coast combined with glorious open countryside, idyllic villages, numerous market towns and historic cities. A recent article in The Guardian listed Petersfield, a central Hampshire market town, as one of the top 10 hotspots to escape the city to, highlighting the fact that the commuting time by train to London Waterloo is just 3 minutes over the magic one hour mark, making it a commuter town with all the benefits of rural life.

The Country House Company has a wide variety of properties available for rent and for sale. Exciting and different sales properties include glorious barn conversions, a unique refurbished converted station and a former chapel now an immaculate character home. Equally exciting and different rental opportunities include a stylish contemporary detached 3 bedroom property in the Meon Valley village of East Meon, a smart furnished penthouse apartment in Petersfield and a converted period cottage opposite Gilbert Whites house in Selborne.

The Country House Company worked incredibly hard to secure us our dream house in Hambledon and we could not be more grateful. Kate was incredibly knowledgeable and open about the house and its history, the local area and the market. We were kept in the loop on communications with the vendor, we never needed to chase and felt that whilst the vendors wishes were communicated and respected our cause was similarly championed which ultimately resulted the best outcome for all. If and when we choose to sell our home, we won’t be going anywhere else. Our experience demonstrates that getting the right team on the case makes all the difference. Thank you Kate and the team at The Country House Company!
