August was predominantly a month of mansions when it came to the most popular homes on Zoopla, with asking prices stretching to the heady heights of £15m.
1. Six-bedroom detached house in Oxshott, Surrey, for £4.95m
This glitzy mansion shot straight to the top of the charts in August thanks to its popularity across social media. The lavish new home boasts the mother of all master bedroom suites with ‘his & hers’ dressing rooms and bathrooms. But you’ll need to stump up nearly £5m to make this dream a reality.

2. Five-bedroom property in Upper Hulme, Staffordshire, for £899,950
In second place is this unique small holding in the stunning surrounds of the Peak District National Park. The farmhouse dates back to the 17th century, but the extravagant heated swimming pool which comes complete with a slide, is a more recent addition. Other eccentric features include a music room with a pipe organ from 1847.

Thinking about escaping to the country? If the popularity of this quaint Victorian home is anything to go by, plenty of you are. It’s the perfect blend of rustic style and modern convenience, with new electrics, plumbing and drainage all installed in the last decade. There's also a gorgeous walled garden with summerhouse.

7. Eight-bedroom property in Totteridge, London, for £15m
At an eye-watering £15m, you’d expect this 20,000 square foot mega mansion to be packed full of lavish features. And with a party room, gym, indoor swimming pool and home cinema on offer, it doesn’t disappoint. Despite being built in the style of an Arts and Crafts manor, it’s only nine years old – which explains why it has its own lift.

8. Eight-bedroom detached house in Bickley, Bromley, price on application
Another modern mansion takes eighth place, and it immediately makes an impression thanks to its spectacular double-height entrance hall with sweeping solid wood staircase. The price tag is only available on request, but with the current average value for a detached home in Bickley standing at a current £1,249,725 we suspect it won’t come cheap.
