If you’ve ever wondered what a cool £30 million would get you on the London property market, it turns out you’re not alone.

Rightmove – the UK’s number one property search website – has revealed the properties that racked up the most views on the site in 2017, including a £30 million mansion in London’s exclusive Kensington neighbourhood which was the most clicked-on property in the capital

The property – located on Upper Phillimore Gardens, and on the market for £29,950,000 – has 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and boasts four reception rooms, a cinema, a pool, a sauna, a wine vault, and a roof terrace among its impressive features.

The mansion, which is set across 12,000 square feet, racked up 83,000 views over the course of the year, making it the eighth most visited online listing in the UK, as well as the most clicked-on London property.

Rightmove director Miles Shipside told Homes & Property: “This year’s list of most popular homes shows just how much people love having a nosy around some of the most luxurious properties across the UK, some to dream about living there and others to perhaps look for design inspiration.”

And it’s not hard to see why.

Set back from the street behind its own landscaped front garden, the entrance to the house is approached via steps that lead up and into a rather grand-looking entrance hall, complete with marble pillars.


All three main rooms on the raised ground floor can be accessed from the hall.
