Vendor Interview - Built just 15 years ago by the current owners, Highgate House is a beautifully bright and spacious family home in the most idyllic of locations. We wanted to take full advantage of the 240 views of the surrounding countryside say the owners, so we have used lots of glass in the design of the house so that we can enjoy the rising and setting of the sun.

The house is light, airy and sunny, and extremely spacious; the owners continue, the rooms are huge with vaulted ceilings. Due to glass on two sides of the master bedroom, we can lie in bed and see the sun rise and move round to the ethereal church spire in the distance, which pokes out of the mist that hangs over the river. Its just breathtaking. On bonfire night, we can even lie in bed and watch firework displays in three directions, from the Golf Clubs and Derby centre!

Another triumph in the building is the employment of all of the latest technology and gadgets, including mechanical ventilation, underfloor heating and triple glazing, to ensure comfortable modern living. Heating and security systems are even wired so that the self-contained apartment to the rear of the house can be heated and alarmed separately. The house has three external doors, to the front, side and rear, so the apartment can be used as private accommodation for a teenager, grandparent, tenant or member of staff say the owners.

Set in approximately 1 acre of land, the property is extremely private, not overlooked by any neighbours. To the side of the property, the garden is mostly laid to lawn, with a charming outdoor chess board set into the paved entertaining area. Behind the house is a further seating area, formal lawns and exquisite borders, very private with amazing views. We have an acre of landscaped garden, which is lovely, say the owners but the most wonderful thing is the views of the surrounding countryside.

Favourite room

We spend most of our time in the kitchen, where we have a dining table with reclining chairs from which to enjoy the stunning views. We quite often spend our evenings in the kitchen and go straight to bed from here.

What will you miss most?

We will miss the privacy. We are surrounded by fields, and when the leaves are on the trees you cant see any other houses. We rarely close the curtains!

Best thing about the grounds or local area

Opposite Allestree park and Golf Club, the property is close to leisure facilities as well as the local pub and shops in Duffield and Allestree. It feels like it is in the middle of the countryside, but in fact Highgate House is only 3 miles from the city centre, so you can still get home delivery from the cite take away restaurants!

Memorable event or favourite feature

Christmases are always fantastic here. We often have 20 people staying here for three or four days, with plenty of room for everyone. The extendable dining table means we can accommodate the whole family for Christmas dinner!
