August was a month of mansions when it came to the most popular homes on Zoopla, with asking prices stretching to the heady heights of £14.5m.
1. Seven-bedroom detached house in Broadstairs, Kent, for £1.25m
Topping this list for the second month in a row, is this newly-built home on the Kent coast. Sea views are on offer from the master bedroom and the beach itself is within walking distance. It’s kitted out with a stylish kitchen and modern bathrooms, but the rest of the home is a blank canvas for you to make your own. What are you waiting for?

2. Five-bedroom detached house in Bramcote, Nottingham, for £1.2m
In second place is another contemporary home, this time in the suburb of Bramcote, just under five miles from the centre of Nottingham. While the main house is in immaculate condition, there is the opportunity to undertake a project in the garden, as there is an extensive outbuilding that could be converted into a gym, home cinema or an office.

3. Six-bedroom detached house in Kirk Michael, Isle Of Man, for £5.9m
You’d be hard pressed to find a more spectacular backdrop for a home than the dramatic mountains that sit behind this house on the Isle of Man. Along with five ensuite bedrooms in the main part of the house, there’s an additional bedroom in the annexe that sits above the triple garage. Other perks include an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room, wine store and a home cinema.

4. Five-bedroom detached house in Mapperley Park, Nottingham, for £1.1m
This home in one of Nottinghamshire’s most exclusive areas is proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover, because the last thing you’d expect to find in it is a grotto-style swimming pool and entertainment area. Aside from the 80s lagoon, the rest of the home is in line with current trends. At the back of the house there are tiered gardens with a waterfall, while to the front is a double garage and a huge drive.

6. Nine-bedroom detached house in Oxshott, Surrey, for £14.5m
Another home that featured in July’s most clicked-on homes takes sixth place. At £14.5m we’re not surprised this grand Grade II-listed Jacobean-style mansion hasn’t been snapped up immediately. But with a 50ft ballroom adorned in 24k gold leaf, a library, leisure suite, kids' playground and three acres of manicured gardens, it’s bound to impress a buyer with deep pockets soon.

7. Three-bedroom semi-detached house in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, for £120,000
Stepping away from all the mega-mansions, this modest family home takes seventh spot. The semi-detached home has been modernised throughout, with a sleek, new, white-gloss kitchen at its heart. And if you’re thinking of making an offer, you won’t have to worry about paying stamp duty, as it sits below the £125k threshold.

8. Six-bedroom detached house in Howe Green, Chelmsford, for £2.5m
In the peaceful village of Howe Green is this sprawling family home with far reaching views of the countryside. Its south-facing gardens contain a heated swimming pool, a large pool house and tranquil pond. While the house offers a quiet country retreat, Chelmsford and all its amenities is just a few miles away, while trains can take you into London in less than 40 minutes.

9. 10-bedroom detached house in Virginia Water, Surrey, POA
Make an entrance on the nickel-plated brass staircase which sweeps through all four floors of this imposing neoclassical mansion. No expense has been spared, with a designer kitchen, marble floors, cinema room and leisure complex. Not forgetting the air conditioned underground garage with parking for 10 to 12 cars.

10. Five-bedroom semi-detached house in New Malden, Kingston upon Thames, for £1.4m
This recently renovated family home in sought-after New Malden takes the final spot for August. The entire house was gutted from top to bottom, with a new extension added to the rear and an extra bedroom and ensuite added with a loft conversion. There’s also a beautifully landscaped garden, off-street parking and it’s only a short walk to Motspur Park train station.
