Bridgerton fever is sweeping the nation and, as well as creating Regé-Jean Page hysteria, it's also sent period property searches soaring.
New research from Rightmove reveals that Bridgerton-esque properties are the most-viewed homes in the UK over the past month.
Rightmove’s Director of Property Data Tim Bannister said: 'It’s always interesting to see which homes are piquing the nation’s interest, and there definitely appears to be a theme with this crop of properties.
'All four of the most-viewed properties on Rightmove are grand stately homes that wouldn’t look out of place on the set of hit show Bridgerton.'
See the top four most-viewed Bridgerton-style properties below.
1. A 14th century mansion in Devon
This charming 10-bedroom country home, which dates back to the 14th Century, has been painstakingly restored into a stunning family home. Chanters House is on the market for a cool £7 million and its centerpiece is The Great Library, a breathtaking room that is home to around 22,000 books.
