Former Rosewell nursing home in High Littleton acquired by The Care Home Group for luxury make-over
Luxury care developer and operator The Care Home Group has acquired the former Rosewell care home in High Littleton, north east Somerset with plans to transform it into a 5-star luxury assisted living and residential care home.
The 80-bed home - one of the largest in the county - closed in the summer of 2016 and its elderly residents relocated after its previous operator decided to sell the premises.
The Care Home Group has now completed its purchase of the home and will fully renovate it during 2017 into a luxurious 50-bed home with large en suite studio apartments, spacious communal areas and stunning views across the north east Somerset countryside.
The rapidly-expanding Somerset-based company is developing 5-star assisted living, residential and nursing care homes across the South West offering premium levels of living, care and support to residents aged 65+.
It re-opened Latimer Lodge residential care home in Yeovil in January 2017, as part of its Yeovil Care Community development. Following a major redevelopment, the home now features boutique interiors, room service, 24-hour concierge, fine dining, a hair and beauty salon and even a chauffeur-driven Bentley on standby for local trips.
Work is also underway on developing the adjacent Tyndale House nursing home into a specialist dementia facility, as well as the refurbishment of the Grade II-listed Hurst Manor nursing home at nearby Martock.
All homes will be operated by the Group’s CQC-registered care business Caring Communities, which is growing a team of experienced care and support staff for both its homes and to provide home care services within the communities in which it operates.
Sean Murray, CEO of The Care Home Group is looking forward to the transformation of Rosewell:
“We are delighted to add Rosewell to our growing property portfolio. With both Bath and Bristol within a 10-mile radius, our new luxury home will be ideally located for retirees seeking to downsize to a peaceful, rural location – with the peace of mind of professional care on hand 24 hours a day.
"We look forward to sharing our plans with the local community in the coming months - as well as recruiting new staff to deliver a 5-star service at Roswell.”
The sale of Rosewell was handled by Christie & Co. Business Agent Jonathan Southgate commented:
“We are delighted to have helped The Care Home Group to acquire another fantastic property to add to their portfolio. With their established experience in the care sector, we are confident that they will maximise the home’s potential and wish them the best of luck with their future plans.”
