Gleneagle Manor wins the approval of The Harpenden Society with a Plaque as the top honour in their prestigious annual awards for 2015.
Society chairman Chris Marsden presented the Plaque to Mike Peters, CEO of Jarvis Homes on Wednesday May 11th at one of the entrances to the apartments.
The development by Jarvis Homes, comprising 25 apartments, with an end value of approx.£25 million is the largest speculative project completed by the Harpenden based developer an contractor. The scheme was designed by local architects RDT, with a brief to ensure the new building reflected the character of the former “Hotel” and the surrounding conservation area.
Each apartment has been designed to offer “Grand” living with high ceilings, generous rooms sizes and was fitted to a very high and exacting standard.
Owners also had the opportunity to personalise their homes with bespoke kitchens and bathrooms
The former Glen Eagle Hotel was bought from the owners by Jarvis in Jan 2014 following a 15 month planning process and a total of just over 3 years from conception to final handover
Jarvis CEO Mike Peters said “We believe we have created an impressive Harpenden landmark and a new gateway to Harpenden, on this prominent corner site. We are very proud to have masterminded the creation and delivery of this prestigious development and we are delighted with the its success, with all apartments being sold off plan”.
