Sitting on Rightmove, setting no maximum price and scrolling through mansions we could never afford… we all do it! There’s nothing quite as satisfying as picturing yourself in a multimillion-pound estate, living the high life.

Some of us like to look up the most expensive property, to see what is on offer. Others look up the wildest, most remote locations and picture a life of solitude.

But what were the properties we looked up in August? Rightmove have put together the five most looked at properties that we searched last month, and if anything, it shows our range in tastes!

Rightmove’s Property Expert Tim Bannister said: “There’s a real variety about the nation’s most viewed homes in August, highlighting our fascination with different kinds of properties, set in different kinds of locations.

"From the most remote home in England, which takes the idea of space and privacy to another level, to stunning seaside properties in Devon and Cornwall, this month’s most viewed homes take us across rural, coastal and city living.”
