A £15MILLION mansion has been revealed as Rightmove’s most viewed home of the year – and it’s easy to see why.
The opulent property boasts a cinema room, a gym, a 10-car underground garage, a private spa and even an Olympic-sized paddock.
There is also a dance floor and bar, games room and a stunning stone staircase – on top of the five bedrooms, six bathrooms and sprawling living-dining spaces.
Aspen House in Chigwell, Essex, is set on 52 acres of land – and with so much to offer, you’d likely never have to leave.
But it is reserved for the rich and famous, with an eye-watering £15m price tag.
It is on the market with Presidential Estates, which describes the luxury home as “beautifully constructed to the highest specification and with the very best design”.
The listing continues: “The use of weathered oak and lime rendered walls with rosemary roof tiles is commonly used in the surrounding villages and towns, in keeping with neighbouring houses and the countryside.”
Among the property’s outrageous features is a “magnificent” drawing room which leads on to the garden terrace, offering amazing views over the estate and land beyond.
The bespoke kitchen extends to a dining area which also has doors folding out to the rear garden terrace – “perfect for alfresco dining”.
And the “sweeping” stone staircase takes residents and guests to a string of bedrooms, including the master suite complete with his and hers bathrooms and dressing rooms.

Elsewhere, the spa area offers a sauna, steam room and swimming pool with a waterfall and jacuzzi.
There is also a feature skylight which starts at the second floor and ends over the pool in the lower ground floor.
And if that wasn’t enough, there is space to park a whopping 10 vehicles – and even a turntable and car lift up to the drive.
The house sits in the middle of “extensive formal gardens” and an equestrian centre, where there is a purpose-built American barn with ten loose boxes, an office, a tac room and separate saddle room.
There is also additional stabling with four loose boxes, an oak-framed haybarn with storage and an Olympic-sized riding area.
Rightmove property expert Tim Bannister said: “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.
“All of this is apparent in our most viewed homes of the year, where there really is a dream home for everyone.
“Britain continues to have a real fascination with property this year, and a passion for homes of varying designs, layouts and locations.”
Among Rightmove’s other most viewed homes is a £2.5m coastal paradise in Cornwall and an immaculately decorated mansion in Greater Manchester.
