Established West Sussex care home sold to domiciliary care agency
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has completed the freehold sale of Burlington Nursing Home in Bognor Regis, West Sussex.
Burlington Nursing Home is registered for 40 service users in 36 rooms of which 21 have en suite facilities. The property comprises two attached properties that have been extended and upgraded over the years to offer well-presented accommodation, as well as a large garden with secure outdoor space.
The business has been owned by Carey Jamison since 2007 and was recently brought to market to allow her to pursue other business interests.
Following a confidential sales process with Charles Phillips at Christie & Co, it has been purchased by Prime Care Ltd – an established nursing agency that places professionals in nursing and care jobs in and around the Sussex, Surrey and Staffordshire regions. The company also owns two care homes in the region, with this acquisition taking it to three.
Carey Jamison, former owner of Burlington Nursing Home, comments, “When I bought the business through Charles, this was my first care home and venture into the sector. It was a steep learning curve and, although there have been challenges along the way, I have enjoyed the time I have had at Burlington and have taken the decision to sell as I want to pursue other interests and feel now is a good time to be handing over the business to a new owner.”
Rojimon Varughese, Director at Prime Care Ltd, comments, “Having been involved in the domiciliary care sector since 2014 and also owning two care homes in the south, I was keen to expand, and Burlington Nursing Home appealed greatly to me. The home has a good reputation in the area and a dedicated team of staff who I am looking forward to getting to know and work with.”
Charles Phillips, Director - Healthcare at Christie & Co, adds, “Having sold the business to Carey back in 2007, it was a pleasure to be asked by her to act as the agent when she decided to sell. The home attracted a good deal of interest from first-time buyers, existing operators, and investors due to the number of registrations and performance. This is a good business in the popular coastal town of Bognor Regis and is the third care home completion we have had in the town in the last five weeks. We wish the buyer great success and are confident he will build on the home's already strong reputation.”
Burlington Nursing Home was sold for an undisclosed price.
