Owner's perspective - We have really enjoyed the last 3 1/2 years living at "Hillcrest". The main attraction for us has been the breathtaking views and the idyllic peace and quiet whilst still being close enough to Derby to be convenient for everyday work and personal needs. Our reasons for leaving are purely employment related and so we will miss our home tremendously. We really enjoy the lifestyle and the seasons, from enjoying the outside space in the summer to sitting in-front of the log burner in the winter evenings, warm and cosy. We know whoever becomes the new guardian of "Hillcrest" will enjoy it as much as we have.
