Gleneagle Manor is an exclusive development of luxury apartments situated in central Harpenden.

Located on the former Glen Eagle Hotel site, the project has been designed in a traditional Georgian style to compliment this Harpenden conservation area.

From early site acquisition, Jarvis undertook an intensive design process working in collaboration with the design team, St Albans D.C and the Harpenden community to achieve planning consent.

The scheme comprises of 25no, 2 and 3 bed apartments with 19 for private sale and 6 affordable. The 2 separate 3 storey blocks have secure underground car parking for 25 vehicles. The construction consists of a reinforced in-situ concrete frame and floors with an external cavity brick and block skin and mansard roof with slates.

One of the key features of the development has been the close co-operation between Jarvis and the purchasers to enable bespoking of the apartments to meet the client’s individual aspirations.
