Inside the most viewed homes on Rightmove this month
Here at Rightmove we love finding out what properties are attracting the most attention from our audience across the country.
We’re often surprised at the variety of homes that catch the nation’s interest. From tiny and quirky, to castles, mega-mansions and seaside retreats – Brits have time for them all.
So we can now reveal the five homes that topped the viewing charts in February. They’re all very different, but do have one thing in common: each is one of a kind.
A mariner's dream home
This seven-bedroom waterfront property in Cornwall was once a warehouse for Mail Packet ships in the 17th and 18th centuries. After several incarnations – including a factory for torpedo boats in WWII – it was made into a residence in the 80’s.
On the market for £3.5 million, Britons Slip is in a spot coveted by marine enthusiasts because of its direct access to sea. It even comes with its own private slipway and L-shaped pier.
The interior also stands out. It’s a distinctive blend of contemporary design and rustic original features.
And the views across the Falmouth harbour – they are simply breath-taking.
A stately home in Kent
This immense six-bedroom property sits inside the prestigious Keston Park, a gated development in the Kentish countryside – and yet only 14 miles from Central London.
At the heart of the house is the magnificent marble reception hall with grand staircases and stunning walnut handrails.
As you continue the tour, you’ll notice how every room is spectacular and designed to an impeccable standard.
Check out the state-of-the-art leisure facilities, which include a 14mt swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.
The South-facing gardens are meticulously landscaped and feature a gorgeous waterfall pond.
Glenwood is on the market for a cool £6,950,000.
A Hollywood-style mansion
This amazing property on the Cornish coast is reminiscent of a Beverly Hills mansion, with its modern architecture, open-plan design, and luxurious interior.
For sale at £3.5 million, Suncliffe sits on the top of a hill facing the sea – the panoramic views are unbelievable.
The massive floor-to-ceiling glass walls, doors, and windows make the most of the views and flood the entire place with natural light.
It’s been built for efficiency using world-class renewable energy technology. The solar thermal panels provide most of the hot water and heat the swimming pool.
A skinny home in London
Measuring only 6ft wide, this quirky terraced home in west London’s Shepherds Bush is said to be the narrowest property in the capital.
It may be hard to believe, but the two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, living room and roof terrace are stacked on top of each other over five floors.
The interior layout has been designed thoughtfully, as it looks surprisingly practical and spacious for its size.
This former hat shop is now for sale for £950,000.
A mini castle
This tiny castle in Buckinghamshire was originally built in the 1700s by Sir John Van Hatten to house his fossil collection.
The transformation of the property was featured in the 19th series of Grand Designs.
The end result is a totally unique two-bedroom home that is bursting with charm and character.
The unusual octagonal floorplan offers a striking 360-degree view of the surrounding countryside.
Divon Castle is available on Rightmove for £700,000.
