Whether you’re actually thinking of moving house or you just enjoy a bit of property porn, checking out homes for sale has become our new fave lockdown hobby, (as well as making marmalade a la Elizabeth Hurley, of course).

Property website Zoopla has revealed its list of the most viewed properties for sale and it turns out the homes we’re all looking at are a bit of a mixed bag.

The most viewed properties are spread across England, Scotland and Wales, with locations featured including Edinburgh, Swansea and Scunthorpe.

Surprisingly it isn’t just luxury pads we’re lusting after, with prices of Zoopla’s top views starting at £95,000 and going all the way up to a whopping £54.5million.

Featured properties range from a mega mansion in Mayfair, to a rural retreat in the Isle of Skye.
