The most viewed properties in Edinburgh and the Lothians on the ESPC website last month

Local property portal ESPC has revealed the 10 properties which were the most popular on its website throughout August 2023, racking up more than 160,000 views between them.

There was quite a selection of styles and sizes making up the top 10, with the properties garnering the most attention including a detached four-bedroom villa in Bruntsfield, a stylish modern apartment in Bonnington and an Instagrammable one-bed warehouse conversion on The Shore in Leith. Property prices in the top 10 showed a real mix of buyers’ budgets too, with prices ranging from a considerable £895,000 to a more budget-friendly £180,000.

Edinburgh remained a hotspot for home-hunters, with nine out of the top 10 properties situated in the Capital, and the other top 10 property located in nearby Musselburgh. Flats also appeared to be in high demand, with eight flats on the list. And the market still appeared to be moving at pace, with three of the properties already under offer.

Paul Hilton, chief executive of ESPC, said: “There has been huge demand for one and two bedroom flats in trendy districts such as The Shore, Canonmills, Newhaven and Bonnington, with prices starting around the £180,000 mark.

"At the other end of the scale, family homes in prestigious postcodes surrounding Bruntsfield and the New Town have also been popular, and of course, there’s been plenty of popularity for properties close to the water, with homes in Musselburgh, Joppa and Duddingston all making our top 10, as buyers continue in their droves to search for a home close to the coast.”
