At the end of each year, we love to take a look at the homes that have caught the attention of home-hunters in a big way over the last twelve months. And what do 2022’s most-viewed homes have in common? Well, it’s fair to say they’re all absolutely spectacular.
Our property expert, Tim Bannister, says: “Many of us have thought about where we could live if money was no object, and this shows in the most viewed homes of the year which have captured the imagination of people across Great Britain during 2022.”
So, from a home featured in a BBC TV series, to an incredible estate with its own ten-pin bowling lane, take a look at the most-viewed homes on Rightmove in 2022.
