Britain is a nation obsessed with property porn, with many of us lusting over palatial homes with grand staircases, gigantic pools and cinema rooms among other bells and whistles.
But which British properties were the most popular this year, Rightmove has done a list – take a look:
1. 7-bedroom detached home in Hampstead
This seven-bedroom luxury home is the second most expensive home listed on Rightmove after One Hyde Park but it was the most viewed on Rightmove in 2015. Pricetag? A cool £46m.
Forget the swimming pool and the four reception rooms this home offers, the USP of this mansion is obviously the kid’s slide alongside the huge stairway into the garden.
2. 11-bedroom detached house in Cheshire
Pricetag: Only on application
From Wayne Rooney to Katie Price to Peter Crouch, a lot of celebrities have visited this house. Why? It’s the former home of Dawn Ward, an interior designer to the stars.
Billed as one of the most prestigious houses in Cheshire, the price of this home is revealed only on application.
- 9-bedroom home in Hampstead
Another Hampstead gem, this nine-bedroom detached house could be yours for £32m. Situated bang opposite Hampstead Golf Course, the mansion includes an extensive leisure complex with Hammam massage, a swimming pool, a gymnasium and a cinema complex.
- 6-bedroom detached home in Nottingham
A six-bedroom London home for £500,000 in today’s times would be an anomaly. For that you’ve got to move to Nottingham. And if you do, check out this six-bedroom detached home where the bathroom is the size of your average London bedroom.
5. 8-bedroom home in Surrey
Spend £19.7m on this Surrey home and you could have your own version of Buckingham Palace (well, sort of). Set in about four acres of landscaped and wooded grounds, the home offers spa facilities comprising of a sauna, gym and indoor pool. There is also a 14-seat state-of-the-art cinema, and games room and garaging for six cars.
