The Ampthill branch of Country Properties was established by the GreenRose network which was formed in 1974. Terry has been the principal since 1988 and has seen many highs and lows in the housing market since then. Nick joined the office in 1999 becoming a partner in 2006. 

If you’re considering selling or letting, we’re happy to provide a free, no obligation valuation and offer tailored marketing packages with professional photography available in order to showcase your property at it’s very best.

Market conditions here generally reflect the UK housing market however as the area has always been particularly popular it has always faired well in difficult conditions. The area owes much of its popularity to its super commuter links and outstanding local schools.

The team in the Ampthill office has always been made up local people. We have always highly valued local knowledge and longevity and are lucky to have had several staff members work here for many years. Employing local people with experience and a background in estate agency has always been an accomplishment. Our favourite compliment is having clients return for us to have us sell their houses for them again and good service and reputation are foremost in our endeavors.

Just can't rate Country Properties highly enough. They were professional and friendly from start to finish and went over and above what could be expected of them. Special thanks to Sarah who did everything that she could to make the sometimes stressful process of house buying much easier. They were a pleasure to deal with and will be my only choice if I ever move again. Thank You!
