From a £11m new-build mansion on the outskirts of London to a £70,000 former gun tower in south-west Wales, here's what got the nation clicking on Zoopla last month.
1. Seven-bedroom detached house in Coombe Park, Kingston Upon Thames, for £11m
This lavish new-build mansion on the private Coombe Estate was Zoopla's most clicked-on home in August. But with an £11m price tag, we're guessing it was largely curiosity. An indoor swimming pool complex with a steam room, spa and gym, home cinema, games room and staff flat among the luxurious features on offer.
Available via Knight Frank
2. Five-bedroom detached house in Scout, Marsden, Huddersfield, for £2.5m
Looking for a home that offers a blend of old and new? This modernised and extended Grade II-listed home fits the bill. A striking extension has been added to make space for a contemporary kitchen and open plan living space, while large panels of windows frame stunning views of the Yorkshire countryside.
Available via Yorkshire's Finest Holmfirth
3. Six-bedroom detached house in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, for £4.45m
In third place is this award-winning family home that’s packed full of the latest mod cons. Underfloor heating has been fitted throughout the ground and first floor, while a state-of-the-art Savant Pro home automation system is also in place. The house sits in immaculately landscaped grounds with a double garage that doubles as an annexe.
Available via Bovingdons
4. Offshore 19th-century Gun Tower in Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, for £70,000
This three-storey former gun tower in south-west Wales was built in 1851 to store military gun powder and provisions. Now it's on the market as a residential home. It will take some serious work to make habitable, but it could be worth it for the views of the Cleddau River, Pembroke Dock, Neyland and Llanstadwell.

5. Five-bedroom detached house in Berkswell, Coventry, for £1.95m
Rounding out the top five is this Grade II-listed family home built in the Queen Anne period. It’s been carefully over the last 10 years, with new additions including a bespoke kitchen that leads into a new family reception room. A separate annexe was also refurbished, making it a great home for multigenerational living.
