Vantage Grouville Bay Jersey

Written by Roma Publications


Located in one of the most desirable locations in Jersey, Vantage is the first scheme for ultra-high-end development management and interior design business Fitzwood (www.fitzwood.co.)

Vantage is comprised of three detached houses stacked on a communal garage. From an elevated position each house provides captivating views of sea and sky over Grouville Bay and beyond to the coast of France.

Fitzwood was founded earlier this year by developer Phil Wood and interior designer Nicole Murray. The company is undertaking both private commission and speculative development projects.

Naturally, at the heart of Vantage is elegant luxury and modern convenience. Co-Founder Phil Wood explained:

“These are going to be ultra-luxury units and are going to be really stunning. We actually purchased the site from another developer so it already had plans, which we then tweaked with our architect. It’s developed from there really.

“We’re in an elevated position in Gorey. You’ve got stunning views from the land to the sea, with the curve of the bay. It’s really incredible.

“Aside from the views, the quality of the finishes will be a definite standout. We’re really going for it and I think it’s going to raise the bar for luxury developments in Jersey.”

Each of the three homes boast spacious living areas, two guest suites and a truly breath-taking top floor master suite. A private lift offers direct access to all floors and private outdoor terraces create a connection between the properties and the stunning surrounding landscape.

Standout design details include limestone floors, bronzed antique mirror splashbacks and stone work surfaces. The master bathrooms at Vantage feature calacatta marble tiled walls and floors, carefully considered lighting, walk-in showers and luxuriously large freestanding baths. There is even a wine cellar with bespoke joinery.

Work is well underway on site ahead of a scheduled completion at the end of the year. The walls are up, the roof is on and the first stage of mechanical and electrical implementation is underway.

Situated on the east of Jersey, Gorey is an idyllic location with a rich and varied history. Overlooked by Mont Orgueil Castle, (which according to records was first mentioned in the 13th century), Gorey is home to superb dining from a number of alfresco restaurants.

Reflecting on the importance of the project, Phil concluded:

“It’s really exciting to be delivering projects in these areas. What we’re trying to do now is find sites in the best locations. We’ve got another incredible site in St Brelade’s Bay that we’re working away on in the background.”

When completed, Vantage will blend nature with modern coastal living to create a tranquil living environment. To find out more and follow the progress of the project, please visit www.vantagegorey.je.
