Five- and six-bedroom houses were top of the bill on Zoopla during September. But there were smaller homes too – and one with a magical connection. See the top 10 most viewed.
1. Three-bedroom link-detached house in Martins Heron, Berkshire, for £475,000
Muggles will be lining up to buy this magical home, which featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as the boy wizard’s home, 4 Privet Drive. The inside of the contemporary three-bedroom property wasn’t used for the film – but it does have a cupboard under the stairs.
Available via Chancellors
2. Six-bedroom semi-detached house in Upper Leytonstone, East London, for £1.05m
Big gardens and off-street parking are two property features in short supply in London – but this Victorian home comes with both. The double-fronted semi (which has no less than 13 rooms in total) is bursting with potential. Buy as an investment to rent as a house share, or renovate into a super-spacious family home.

3. Six-bedroom detached house in Kingston Hill, West London, for £2.95m
If you love Edwardian property and you’ve got £3m to spend, this gorgeous home could be the perfect fit. The entire six-bedroom property has been thoughtfully modernised, retaining its charming period features. Although it comes with its own beautifully-tended back garden, Richmond Park is just around the corner.

6. Three-bedroom semi-detached house in South Norwood, South London, for £600,000
This quirky coach house is thought to date back to 1880, but there’s been plenty of modernisation since then. The cosy living room with its exposed brickwork and fireplace is the perfect spot to snuggle up in winter. There’s also off-street parking for three vehicles – not bad in London for its £600,000 price tag.

7. Four-bedroom detached house in St. Austell, Cornwall, for £1.25m
It’s difficult to imagine a better breakfast view than the one from the balcony of this brand-new seaside getaway which looks across the English Channel. The open-plan kitchen and living area comes complete with bi-fold doors that open out onto the balcony which is perfect in summer.

8. Five-bedroom semi-detached house in Cleeve Hill, Cheltenham, for £1.35m
This 4,000-sq ft new-build home is tucked away in a gated development, so you’ll have plenty of privacy.

Extra perks include a media room, laundry room, underfloor heating and a new home warranty.

9. Five-bedroom detached house in Torksey, Lincoln, for £1.25m
This sprawling modern mansion could be mistaken for a hotel, but it’s set up as a family home with a cinema, games room, gym and indoor swimming pool. The home won the Build in Excellence award for energy efficiency, which explains why our running costs tool estimates its energy bills to cost just £101 a month.
Available via Lawrence James Residential

If you love entertaining at home, then this 2007-built house just 13 miles outside Glasgow comes with plenty of options.
