Many of us are guilty if wiling away hours browsing houses we'll probably never be able to afford, and 2021 offered us plenty of time to do this.
To mark the end of the year, Rightmove have released their most viewed properties of 2021 - and some of them are absolutely incredible.
Their property expert Tim Bannister said our choices have been reflective of many of us being stuck in lockdown, saying: "This year in property has really been like no other.
"We’ve seen people imagining the life that could be in the countryside, looking at what’s on offer by the coast, and more recently, reigniting their curiosity about the city."

He added: "All of this is apparent in our most viewed homes of the year, where there really is a dream home for everyone, from a London manor house just yards from Hampstead Heath to a coastal escape with direct access to the sea in Cornwall.
"Britain continues to have a real fascination with property this year, and a passion for homes of varying designs, layouts and locations."
Whether it's a mansion previously owned by Robbie Williams or the UK's most remote house (which sounds pretty great right about now...), here are the houses we've all been lusting after this year.
