The Block NZ seems to have viewers hooked on TV, but it was a futuristic spaceship in Otago that had New Zealand hooked on Trade Me.

A futuro spaceship home in Warrington beat out four Auckland homes from The Block NZ to take the top position on Trade Me's 10 most popular property listings of 2017.

Kiwis love to check out the bizarre and beautiful houses, baches and buildings that are hiding around the country, says Trade Me spokeswoman Millie Silvester.

The rare spaceship-like house, which is one of only 96 futuro houses in the world, was built in 1974 and received over 63,000 views when it landed on Trade Me in September.

Meanwhile, Kiwis love their home renovation shows so it came as no surprise that all four houses from The Block NZ made the list along with two Grand Designs homes in Dargaville and Queenstown.

The Block's Ling and Zing's house was the second most viewed property with 52,760 views, followed closely by the show's winners Andy and Nate's house which came third with 47,195 views.

Another favourite was a concrete water tower in Rangitikei which had over 38,000 views and was once linked to an old psychiatric hospital, says Ms Silvester.

A small brick church in Bluff also made the list, fetching over 35,000 views along with a tiny house on wheels which was viewed over 43,000 times.
