Alex Lawson, head of Savills’ national farms and estates team, specialises in the sale of the very best rural property throughout the UK. Despite the changing political and economic landscape, he has seen a significant number of highly successful transactions for large estates and farms. ‘For England, 1,000 acres is still pretty rare and therefore highly sought after,’ he says. Lawson sees the amenity estate market and the residential rural market gradually improving. He is confident about the performance of rural estates, where the market is considered ‘a sensible, defensive asset class for a mixed portfolio — it is felt still to be a very attractive asset class because it’s a very secure investment.’
