Abbotsfield Residential Care Home sold through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, is delighted to announce the sale of Abbotsfield Residential Care Home in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.

Abbotsfield Residential Care Home sits on an impressive site located on Abbey Road in the Cumbrian town of Barrow-in-Furness. The property is roughly a mile from the town centre, and within walking distance to Furness General Hospital and many other local amenities.

The home offers accommodation to 26 people and is spread across four floors, with bedrooms on the ground and first floor. On the second floor is a two-bedroom flat, which would be ideal for owner’s accommodation or staff accommodation.

The property was established in 1983 and purchased by its previous owners Mr Jeff and Mrs Lata Patel in 1996 via Christie & Co. It has been under the same family ownership ever since. Management of the home has since been passed on by the Patel’s daughters, Hazleen and Tasha, who have continued with the ethos of offering the highest standards of care to all the residents.

After over 24 years in the sector, the Patel family have decided to sell the home and look at retiring from the industry. They instructed James Knight of Christie & Co to find a new owner who shared the same principles and values to build on what this home has already achieved.

Commenting on the sale, Mr Patel said, “Abbotsfield has undergone many changes since February 1996, whereby in the last 10 years my two daughters offered their support in running and managing the home. The decision to sell the care home was not taken lightly, but it was down to me and my wife fully retiring and wanting to experience life to the fullest. The whole family wishes that Abbotsfield continues to provide outstanding care to the residents there, and would like to take this opportunity to wish the Mr Phil and Mrs Kim Rogerson the very best.”

The home was purchased by experienced operators local to the area, Mrs Kim and Mr Philip Rogerson. Commenting on the sale, they said, “We look forward to a long and successful future with the caring and enthusiastic staff team at Abbotsfield Care.”

James Knight, Business Agent (Care) at Christie & Co who handled the sale, comments, “It has been a pleasure working with Jeff and his family and for all the work they have had to put into getting the sale over the line, in the current climate which we find ourselves in this has been an excellent result for all concerned. The sale was concluded to an experienced local operator Kim and Philip Rogerson who we would also like to wish all the best to for the future and alongside their other home this will be a fantastic purchase.”

Abbotsfield Residential Care Home was sold at an undisclosed price.
