The five most viewed homes in Dorset on Rightmove in January with two ideal family homes

Rightmove announced its five most viewed properties in Dorset last month, and most are in the millions – but not all.

While some people enjoy looking at pictures of their dream home, many of us need to focus on practical options.

In Dorset’s January 2022 list of most viewed homes, two homes cost under £600,000 and would make ideal family homes.

Here are the properties that made Rightmove’s top five list.

10-bed house, Bournemouth – £2.6million




It’s no surprise that this luxurious villa has made it into Dorset’s top five viewed properties with its swimming pool, annex potential, nine bathrooms and multiple sun terraces.

This ‘gentleman’s residence’ is almost 6,000 square feet and has 0.8 acres of land, yet is only half a mile from Bournemouth train station.

Indeed, at £2.6million it’s unlikely to be in most viewers’ budgets – but that doesn’t stop us from wanting to take a look anyway.

More photos of this home and its rooms (including a gym and pool room) can be found here.

4 Bedroom House, Bournemouth – £475,000




In a much closer to average budget is this four bedroom house in Redhill, Bournemouth.

It sits in several school catchments and has a cloakroom, utility room and kitchen diner which would make an excellent family home.

However, its decoration and giant glass panels at the back of the house still make it modern and open.

4 bedroom house, Sandbanks – £5.5m




This luxurious Sandbanks home has previously featured on Dorset Live, as it featured in Rightmove’s top 10 most viewed properties nationwide.

However, it seems that even if people aren’t buying, many are interested in taking a look.

This house is priced at £5.5m but for that you get near instant access to Poole Harbour, sea views, multiple lounges, home gym , a swimming pool and a terrace on the roof.

5 bedroom house, Branksome Park – £3m




Another luxury home seen by many is this 6,000 square foot home set in an acre of land.

The garage has space for three cars, each bedroom has its own bathroom, and it even has its own ‘leisure complex’ room with an indoor pool, wood stove and sunken seating area.

Its location in Branksome Park is also a plus, with its close ties to the beach and its leafy, woodsy feel.

5 Bedroom House, Christchurch – £575,000




This detached house has off-road parking, a spacious living/dining area and a lawned garden with patio.

It is also located very close to downtown Christchurch, with Christchurch train station less than a mile away.

The five bedrooms are double and two have their own bathroom.
