Outdoor swimming pools proved popular with home hunters in April, along with modern interiors and panoramic views of the countryside.
Last month’s most popular properties – not including homes that have previously appeared on the list – were as eclectic as ever, with a Victorian cottage, converted waterworks and even a pre-fabricated 'Huf Haus' all making their way into the top 10.
