Explore the most viewed overseas homes of 2020

As many of you will appreciate, it’s been an unusual 12 months for the overseas market as people have been restricted from flying abroad for much of the year.

However, we’ve still seen enormous interest in overseas property this year, and in fact there’s been an 18% annual increase in the number of users on our overseas site in 2020.

So there definitely remains a huge appetite among the British public to view homes overseas, and this round-up of the most viewed properties from across the globe is pretty special.

From a magnificent New York apartment to a palatial Greek mansion, these five pads are really quite something…

The sprawling Californian ranch

This stunning Californian equestrian ranch, which is on the market for almost $40million, beautifully encapsulates all that is great about the Golden State.

Rancho Latigo is nestled deep in 4,600 acres of gorgeous rolling hills, boasting unparalleled vistas of the natural landscape surrounding it. To this day, this huge parcel of land remains largely untouched.

A helipad offers a conveniently modern bonus, with access to Los Angeles and beyond, and in between games of tennis or horse riding trails, you can take a dip in the pool and enjoy breath-taking sunset views.

This property is listed for sale with American Farm & Ranch.
