Rightmove reveals most sought-after period property styles

The allure of Victorian architecture continues to captivate homebuyers, Rightmove suggests.

Analysis by the portal shows Victorian homes are the most searched for period property style. 

Rightmove’s Keyword Sort tool highlights the wider popularity of historic and unique properties, with ‘character’ and ‘period’ ranking in the top 20 most searched-for keywords in property criteria this year.  


Some of this is attributed to the success of TV show period dramas such as Downton Abbey, Bridgerton and The Tudors.

Georgian properties are the second most searched-for style, while the third most popular home style is Edwardian, followed by Tudor in forth, and Regency homes in fifth.  

Rightmove’s property expert Tim Bannister said: "Home hunters continue to be captivated by the character and charm of properties that we see in period dramas.

“Victorian homes remain particularly popular, characterised by their historic charm, solid construction, and spacious interiors. You’ll often find Victorian houses in some of the most desirable locations which include convenient access to schools and transport links.”
