Most viewed properties of 2019

A $24 million Remuera mansion, Wellington castle and historic ‘banana’ house are among our most popular property listings of 2019.

New Zealand’s passion for a gander at a nice slice of property remains firmly in place, with the top 10 listings generating over 1 million views between them. 

The Remuera mansion boasting an enormous 5000sqm of land with a tennis court and infinity pool looking out at the Waitemata Harbour was the most viewed property listing of the year. It’s also got as many parking slots in the garage as it has bedrooms (5) and, of course, a wine cellar. The listing has topped 239,000 views and is still onsite for anyone keen to see it. 

Second on the most-viewed list is a heritage townhouse in Hawera that clocked in at 120,000 views. Also reaching the six-figure mark was this Game of Thrones-style 70s castle in Wellington, which comes complete with drawbridge and moat.

3. Wellington Castle

Another property in Wellington that made the list is the 143-year-old crescent house, which found new owners in November. The remarkable property, affectionately known as the ‘banana’ home, is full of historical features and is heritage listed. 

4. Crescent House

The Block NZ managed to squeeze three of its firehouse apartments into the top 10. It wasn’t the winners generating the most views this year, instead Sophia and Mikaere’s apartment saw 73,000 views, while Lisa and Ribz netted 58,000 views and Stacey and Adam weren’t far behind on 53,000 views.”
