John D Wood & Co. launch new Country House Department 

John D Wood and Co. are delighted to announce the launch of their new Country House department. This new team, led by Vince Dennington, Country House Director will specialise in the sale of select fine country homes and estates covering Surrey, Kent, Hampshire, Sussex, Berkshire, Oxford and surrounding areas. 


The Country House team has been created as a direct result of John D Wood and Co. clients wanting to sell their country homes and estates, alongside a 68% rise* in buyers registering for their services with intentions to move outside of London. 


Established in Mayfair in 1872, John D Wood and Co. specialise in selling and letting properties in London, the country and internationally. John D Wood & Co. prides itself in offering a bespoke service, a strategic approach to marketing, and local expertise that has been trusted for generations. 


Polly Ogden Duffy, Managing Director comments: 


“The ever increasing demand from our clients to work with us to sell their country residence has been difficult to ignore. In recent years, our focus has predominantly been within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, South West London, and Surrey. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic we have seen a significant increase in buyers looking for a second home or weekend retreat outside of London. That coupled with existing clients looking for our expertise to help them sell their country house or estate provided us with this exciting opportunity to expand.” 


Commenting on the department launch, Vince Dennington: 


“I am thrilled to be heading up the Country House department. Having worked with our clients here at John D Wood and Co. for many years and with a deep understanding of the market I am delighted to be building our network outside of our current prime locations. This expansion allows me and the team to showcase our agility as a trusted agent, whilst more importantly satisfying the desires and requirements of our clients. And we have an extensive database of buyers looking for their next home, particularly from London, wanting second homes or a complete move away from the city.”
