CLIENT: Jimmy Carter developer
PROJECT: New build luxury housing development
Former Liverpool F.C. Arsenal F.C. & Millwall F.C. footballer, Jimmy Carter, acquired a prestigious plot of land in Gleneagles Scotland several years ago, with the intention of developing the site to create a 9,000 square foot classical design palladium style villa, ‘Grosvenor House’.
Situated in a prime location on the Queens Crescent, in the shadow of the Ryder Cup 2014 golf course at Gleneagles, Jimmy originally planned to make the stunning new building his family home. A change in plans saw the family relocate to London and the development was temporarily put on hold. Picking the project up again in the middle of last year, Jimmy appointed Advantage as warranty providers, utilising their experience in part built projects to ensure a smooth road to completion.
The stunning home is set to comprise six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four reception rooms and a substantial games room, all set in just under an acre of extensive fully landscaped grounds. Upon completion the house will be a rental property which Jimmy and his family will continue to use.
Jimmy Carter, Developer of Grosvenor House commented: “This has been a somewhat stop start project but when I knew last year that I wanted to get the project completed, it was all systems go. I looked around at a number of warranty providers and opted for Advantage following detailed discussions with each. It was definitely the right choice and I’m delighted with the way we’ve been treated, benefiting from their professionalism and expertise.”
“The project is now complete and Advantage have been a huge support and asset to myself and the team from the point of their involvement. They would undoubtedly be my provider of choice for any future scheme.”
Barry Bowers, Senior Relationship Manager at Advantage added: “Grosvenor House is a fantastic development and we’ve all enjoyed working with Jimmy and his team. Whilst many providers will shy away from part built developments, we are more flexible in our approach, investing in pre-planning time to inspect the build and liaise with building control.”
“It’s fantastic to see this stunning home now complete and we look forward to working with Jimmy again in the future.”
