We’re all curious about other people’s homes. We want to know what they look like on the inside, and we wonder what it’d be like to really live there.
But which homes piqued the most curiosity in 2014? We went door-to-door, virtually, and scoured our realtor.com® data to figure out which homes were the “most-clicked” over the past year. We limited our list to show only homes that are currently on the market.
The resulting list shows us exactly whatyouwant to see when curiosity strikes. There are a few opulent mega-mansions and some notable historical homes—mixed with just the right dash of homes that make you say, “Hmmm.”
This year’s most-viewed home by a wide margin was an over-the-top castle inConnecticutthat broke the baroque meter. While the rest of the homes were just a touch more understated, they do tilt toward over-the-top luxury.
