Former Berengrove Park Nursing Home in Kent

The former Berengrove Park Nursing Home comprises a terrace of three three-storey Victorian bay fronted residential properties which have been extended and interlinked with a former detached bungalow on the adjoining plot in 2021, with modern accommodation added around a central courtyard and a total of 35 bedrooms and generous ancillary rooms. The site is located opposite Gillingham Park in Gillingham, Kent.

The home, which was previously owned by Lali and Deepal Benaragama and ceased trading in October to allow the pair to retire, has been sold to a Christian charity.

Lali and Deepal Benaragama comments, “Having operated Berengrove Park for nearly 30 years, we are delighted to have now been able to retire and we are grateful to John Harrison of Christie & Co who quickly found us a buyer with the necessary funding. We wish the new buyers every success with the next chapter of Berengrove Park.”

John Harrison, Director – Care at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, comments, “We are delighted to have completed the sale of Berengrove Park Nursing Home following strong interest and to be able to help Lali and Deepal with their plan to retire after having operated the business for nearly 30 years, during which time they have continually expanded and developed the home. We received a number of offers which demonstrates the strong demand we are seeing for closed care homes in the South East”

Berengrove Park Nursing Home was sold for an undisclosed price.
