Most viewed homes on Rightmove this autumn
1. 4-bed detached house in Corton, Suffolk
In the top spot is this spectacular £1.1million home (opens in new tab), which is tucked away on the east Suffolk coast. The beautifully contemporary property really has the wow factor – look at that open-plan kitchen area!
That's not to mention the home cinema and private gym. A sizeable patio area provides a seamless indoor-outdoor socialising space.
2. 4-bed house on the beach in South Cornwall
The view is worth the money alone. This impressive eco-friendly waterside home (opens in new tab), on the market for a cool £3.5million, is nestled on the south coast of Cornwall. In addition to offering sublime ocean views and private access to the beach this breathtaking house features a seafront terrace that wraps around the entire property.
It's there you'll find a heated outdoor pool, a hot tub, pool house and fire pit – all with steps leading directly down to the beach and shoreline. Sold!
3. 8-bed castle in Scotland
Step inside Bardowie Castle (opens in new tab), one of Scotland’s most iconic and historically significant homes. The listed castle is set amidst ten picturesque acres beside Bardowie Loch. The eight-bedroom castle is home to Scotland’s oldest original stone keep, dating from the mid-16th Century.
Despite having been meticulously restored with modern features, you still may find the odd suit of armour. Outside you'll find a tennis court and a private jetty to the loch – very Dawson's Creek.
4. 6-bed detached new-build mansion in Kent
This impeccably grand six-bedroom mansion (opens in new tab) is a sprawling new-build home boasting a whopping 18,000 sq ft of living space. The gorgeous family home is located in the heart of the prestigious and gated Keston Park in Kent. The exterior may be exceptional, but the inside is even more so.
The interior includes an atmospheric bar area, a games room, a gym and even its very own hydrotherapy suite with a pool and a steam room. Imagine how different lockdown would be in that setting.
5. 5–bed detached property in Chigwell, Essex
This stunning and lavish five-bedroom home, residing deep in the Essex countryside, is set in a whopping 52 acres of land. Boast its own Olympic-sized equestrian centre. There's a car port – big enough to accommodate a fleet of ten supercars – like something out of a Bond film.
The elegantly opulent five-bedroom property is also home to an incredibly luxurious indoor swimming pool area. Complete with a waterfall and jacuzzi, as well as a sauna, steam room, cinema room, and a home gym.
Which one would you choose to live? If you had to of course.
