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!

Benefitting from the popular catchment area of Ecclesbourne School it is also within easy reach of many of the areas best private schools including the acclaimed Repton School, Ockbrook, Trent College and Derby High School and Derby University.
