5 Most-Viewed Properties on Boomin [August]

If you love spending your lunch hour checking out the priciest, most absurd homes in your area on Boomin, we’d get along. If only there were more hours in the day to devour listings that you just can’t peel your eyes away from. Well, let us introduce you to some of the most-viewed properties this month that captivated the community thanks to a Grade II listed hall, stone barn, roof garden with a built-in TV, cobbled courtyard and cedar-lined wardrobes. Phew. Let’s take a closer look. 

Stanhope Mews East, South Kensington
Estate Agent: Foxtons

Cinema room with gas fireplace | Bespoke joinery | Miele kitchen appliances

Decked out to superyacht level luxury, this property has upscale Love Island vibes. Its roof terrace, clad in wood panelling and bamboo, features a firepit for relaxed chats, a barbecue for al fresco cooking and a TV for all seasons. Built into the fence, you can kick back and watch your favourite show on the 50” flatscreen. But where, oh where to watch it? Well, there’s ultra-modern sofa seating next to the firepit. But our choice? The jacuzzi. Once your fingertips are wrinkly, resume the programme indoors in the cinema room with TV windows that immerse you in the viewing.

Scaling five floors of immaculate interior styling, complete with cedar-lined wardrobes, built-in air-con and swish kitchen appliances, this Kensington property is a sight for sore eyes (and the pocket at £4.3 million). 

Shipley, West Yorkshire
Estate Agent: Dacre Son & Hartley

5 bedrooms | Double garage | Vast acreage 

Have all the lockdowns tempted you to drop everything and move to the countryside, opting for rustic living and pastoral peace? This stone farmhouse is sure to catch your eye. It has everything you need to play farmer Gabriel Oak: a cobbled courtyard, long-distance pasture views, 60 acres of agricultural land and a detached stone barn with planning approval. 

Inside the rugged farmhouse, there are stone fireplaces, age-old beams and spacious rooms for your family to fill. At a guide price of £1.2 million, this 5-bed house gives you plenty of opportunities to live out your vision of countryside bliss.

Ilminster, Somerset
Estate Agent: Greenslade Taylor Hunt

Village house | Garage | 0.239-acre garden

Let’s head all the way south now to see this corner plot 4-bedroom detached house. Historically titled Berry Cottage, this quaint village house fizzes with character. Period features peek out in each room: Tudor-style pane windows, an antique wood-burning stove and a brick fireplace. Yet there’s nothing poky about the rooms which, from the dining room to the reception room, kitchen and utility, are vast in size.

The garden follows suit. With over 0.2 acres of lush greenery, there’s plenty of space to potter about in the summer house, play rounders on the lawn and entertain guests on the terrace. With idyllic trails and elevated walks on the doorstep, this £600,000 house has been lapped up this month by Boomin browsers. 

Swaffham Bulbeck, Cambridge
Estate Agent: Carter Jonas

5 bedrooms | 4 bathrooms | Gated driveway | £1.1 million

Step inside this impressive Grade II listed former hall house (after passing through the gated driveway, of course). Dating back to the 15th century, the property is believed to have links with Oliver Cromwell and has been carefully and sympathetically updated for 21st-century living. While enveloped in characterful timber beams, this period house doesn’t lack space or light, thanks to expansive rooms and large sash windows. 

If you want some added income or your angsty teen needs time out, there’s a truly stunning annexe with vaulted ceilings, a mezzanine bedroom and glazed French doors leading out onto the paved terrace. 

And the property’s square footage doesn’t end there. The grounds extend to 1.75 acres with an extensive range of useful outbuildings, including stables, a workshop and a large barn. Beyond the mature garden, there are fenced paddocks – ideal for keeping ponies nearby or creating a wholesome wildflower meadow.

Ascot, Berkshire
Estate Agent: Chancellors

3 bedrooms | 22ft reception room | Communal grounds 

Located less than a mile from Ascot racecourse, this 3-bedroom flat is conveniently close to Ascot town centre and the railway station. Though you wouldn’t know it’s so close to transport links with its stunning views over lush woodland. 

Split over two levels and dripping with grandeur, this first-floor apartment is brimming with character features, including high ceilings, sash windows, Venetian blinds, wood flooring and a working fireplace. Relax in this private and secure gated development, then pop out to Windsor Great Park and you’ll likely see a deer but there’s a chance you’ll spot a royal too. You can also explore some of the world-famous recreational facilities nearby, such as golf or tennis. Priced at £575,000, this flat is a little slice of pure luxury.
