9 Most expensive houses in Derby

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

When I started researching the most expensive houses in Derby I quickly found that most of those houses are in Duffield and Quarndon. If I included all those houses then this would be a post about the most expensive houses in Duffield and Quarndon instead of Derby.

I’ve never been to Derby so I need some locals to tell me: Do you consider Quarndon to be a part of the city or should it be moved to a separate page? Also, I’ve only included homes that a family could buy and move into, not investment properties or farms.

Overall, the most expensive homes in Derby are all fairly typical large family homes and not big mansions – even Nottingham has some expensive homes that have that wow factor. If you’re a millionaire looking to drop a few million pounds on a big mansion then Duffield and Quarndon are the places to look at.

1.Woodlands Lane, Quarndon, Derby – £1,375,000

The most expensive house in Derby is £1.375 million. It’s not really in Derby but in the village of Quarndon, where you’ll find lots of other million pound mansions and is where most of the rich people live. This 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom mansion has an outdoor pool and a snooker room that looks inspired by the snooker rooms of the 60s. Perhaps it is owned by an ex-professional snooker player?

2. Montpelier, Quarndon, Derby – £1,100,000

This modern mansion in Derby has everything you might need, except for comfort and a certain cosyness. Call me old fashioned, but I like carpet in my living room and bedrooms! This house comes with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a nice sized garden overlooking the Derbyshire fields. I don’t think it’s on my wishlist of places to live in Derby though!

3. Hawthorns, Darley Abbey – £999,995

This million pound mansion is in Darley Abbey, a post and popular area in Derby. Out of all the houses on the list, this is the one I would choose to buy if a) I was a millionnaire, which I’m not and b) if I was planning to move to Derby, which I’m definitely not. For a million pounds you get a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home with an incredible open plan kitchen and dining area, but the real selling point is the cabin bar at the end of the garden!

4. Petersfield, West Bank Avenue, Derby – £900,000

This house looks exactly the same as my grandparents house before it was sold to move them into a care home. At one point in the 90s it was probably considered modern. Now it just looks dated and shabby. The ‘swimming pool’ in the conservatory just looks sad. Still, for your money you get a huge house with over 2,600 square feet of living space and the potential to do something amazing with it.

5. Keats Avenue, Littleover, Derby – £895,000

As we move down the list of the most expensive houses in Derby we move into the more average family home list. This house is no different. It’s £900,000 but looks like your traditional family home with 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It’s got what I like to call the “Mum aesthetic” throughout, but the lounge at the back of the house is certainly impressive and you get a huge garden for your money.

6. Hillbrow, Montpelier, Quarndon, Derby – £895,000

No photos of what this expensive family home looks like on the inside, but I’m guessing a Mum-aesthetic. It has 4 bedrooms and just 1 bathroom – so the whole family has to share a bathroom? And you pay £900,000 for that? Yowzers.

7. Burley Lane, Quarndon, Derby – £875,000

A good sized family home with a great open plan kitchen and dining area. The house has a modern interior and for your money you get 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large back garden overlooking the Derbyshire hills.

8. Sunny Hurst, Montpelier, Quarndon – £850,000

For £850,000 you can get this really bland house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. I can’t think of much to say about it other than it seems really expensive for what you get. Is Quarndon such a desirable place to live that you’re willing to shell out vast sums of money for a truly average property? What do you think? Am I being harsh?

9. Morley Road, Chaddesden – £800,000

This house confuses me. On the outside it looks like it’s a modern house but on the inside it’s like it’s trying to aspire to be a modern house but the budget didn’t allow for it. For starters, hard floors in every room, including the living room and bedroom? What kind of monster would do that? Furthermore, the en-suite bathroom to the the master bedroom is open plan – there’s no door between the toilet and the bed. Sure a house designed by animals?

Which most expensive house in Derby would you choose?

There are other expensive houses in Derby, especially in Quarndon and Duffield, but I picked a list that represented various parts of the city, otherwise it would have been a bit boring. That said, I’m not super impressed with the type of houses your million pounds can buy in the city. Nottingham and Leicester all have better houses in my opinion.

Am I wrong? Let me know in the comments!
