A smattering of Surrey mansions, a castle and converted train station all feature among June’s most viewed properties on Zoopla. See what else made the list.
1. Six-bedroom detached house in Oxshott, Surrey, for £3.75m
Topping the chart this month is Laynston House which, despite its outward Georgian appearance, dates from the 1930s. Inside, this vast home has been restored and expanded to include perks such as an annex with indoor leisure complex, and all-weather tennis court.

2. Six-bedroom detached house in Hingham, Norwich, for £750,000
How about this for character? The Norwich farmhouse, which took second place in June, is bursting with charming features including inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams and a rustic oak staircase. There’s also a bespoke handmade kitchen and self-contained annex that could potentially be rented out.

3. Five-bedroom detached house in Coalport, Shropshire, for £950,000
Little wonder that this property got you clicking. The unique former Coalport Station comes complete with two railway carriages which have been transformed into luxury holiday lets. The station house itself has been converted into a practical family home with five bedrooms.

4. Seven-bedroom detached house in Fetcham, Surrey, for £2.7m
Built in 2016, this mega-mansion comes with no less than five cavernous reception rooms and six ensuite bedrooms. It’s been kitted out with underfloor heating, engineered oak flooring and security cameras and is all wrapped up with a 10-year build warranty. But, at almost £2.7m, it doesn’t come cheap.

5. Five-bedroom castle in Ravelston, Edinburgh for £6m
Given its £6m price tag, we’re assuming it’s the fairy tale element of 16th Century Craigcrook Castle which made it the 5th most clicked on property in June. The Grade B listed home has also attracted the attention of a plethora of famous writers over the years, with Charles Dickens, Hans Christian Anderson, George Eliot and Alfred Lord Tennyson all having visited.

6. Six-bedroom detached house in Epsom, Surrey, for £2.3m
The third Surrey home to make it into the top 10 is this vast mansion that backs onto the lush fairways of the Royal Automobile Club and Country Club. The ‘family room’ is ideal for entertaining as it comes with its own bar and pool table, while outside you’ll find a Jacuzzi that is almost the size of a swimming pool.

7. 16-bedroom detached house in Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire, for £1.7m
While technically this home is a Scottish baronial mansion, it goes by the name of Dalmoak Castle. Built between 1866 and 1868, we love the stained-glass windows, grand fireplaces and intricate ceilings. And with 16 bedrooms and nine bathrooms, you won’t be short of space either.

8. Four-bedroom cottage in Pontfaen, Fishguard, Wales for £160,000
This reasonably-priced home resembles something from Middle Earth. Actually, it’s a country cottage nestled in the Gwaun Valley within Wales’ Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Eco-friendly credentials include a private spring-fed water supply and solar-power electricity. Built in 1972, it was also one of the first homes to be built with a turf roof.

9. Five-bedroom detached house in Newmillerdam, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, for £1.2m
This contemporary Yorkshire home is spread out over three floors and has everything a 21st family could need. A soundproof recreation room in the basement is ideal as a playroom or a home cinema, while busy parents can keep fit in the comfort of their own home gym (or hide out in the sauna instead).

10. Four-bedroom maisonette in Kensington, West London for £3.4m
Wrapping up the top 10 is one of the most expensive maisonettes on Zoopla – even just the service charges come to £3,890 a year. The lavish four-bedroom home has its own immaculate garden but if you’re after some extra outdoor space then Holland Park and Kensington Gardens are just moments away.
