While we might all dream about owning a mansion by the sea, research has shown that UK home owners are actually searching for something a little more modest when hunting for their dream property.
'Detached', 'garage' and 'bungalow' have been identified as the most popular search terms used by UK house hunters when browsing for homes online.
The research (compiled by property website Zoopla) also identifiedÂ the terms 'cottage', 'acres' and 'rural' as appearing among the 10 most popular search words used across Britain.
