Every parent wants to keep his or her child safe.  One British couple has taken that desire to another level, by building a nightclub in their million-dollar home so their children can enjoy themselves without having to leave the premises.

According to a story in The London Evening Standard, Claire Farrow and Ian Hogarth outfitted their West Kensington home with a gym, movie room, sauna, and yes, a nightclub - complete with professional DJ booth, flashing lights and an illuminated dance floor imported from China.

The soundproofed club is located in the basement next to the couple's bedroom. Their children, 16-year-old Gil, and 12-year-old Tilly, find it the perfect party space. Their parents enjoy it, too.

"It works really well," Farrow told the Evening Standard. "It's also my gym. I'm really bad in the gym but I'll always do some dancing. And it's quite nice, it keeps the teenagers under your roof so you know where they are."

Farrow said she hosts disco dance lessons for her friends every Wednesday in the club.
