Coun­try houses see strong price rise

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

The value of English prime coun­try house prices rose by 2.5 per cent in the sec­ond quar­ter of the year and is now al­most eight per cent higher than 12 months ago, ac­cord­ing to Knight Frank.

The fig­ures are lower in the North, where prices rose by 0.2 per cent be­tween April and June and 4.7 per cent over the past year.

An­drew Shirley, Knight Frank’s head of ru­ral prop­erty re­search, says: “The lat­est quar­terly in­crease means prices have now been ris­ing for 12 months, but they are still al­most 15 per cent down from the peak of the mar­ket in au­tumn 2007.”
