A £55 million Belgravia mega-mansion has been revealed as the most popular property on Rightmove this year, clocking up more than 400,000 views.

At 10,516 sq ft, it's over 10-times the size of an average UK house, and 183 times more expensive.

In fact, its asking price is higher than every other home listed on the site. 

First listed in November 2015, the seven-bedroom, six-bathroom Eaton Square terrace house is set over seven storeys and is in a prime position in Belgravia, just behind Buckingham Palace Gardens.

"It's an increasingly rare property, being as it is one of just 15 houses left on Eaton Square that has not been converted into flats,” says head of Knight Frank’s Belgravia office, Stuart Bailey.
