Rossendale nursery to be converted into children’s home and school

Businesses sold


The former Newhaven Day Nursery in Rossendale has been sold in a deal brokered by specialist property advisor Christie + Co.

Set within an acre of land, the substantial property incorporates the nursery business as well as an adjoining residential property comprising six bedrooms and lovely gardens to the rear.

Previously operating with a total registration for 52 children, the business traded successfully for 25 years and enjoyed an excellent reputation in the community. 

The freehold interest in the business has now been acquired off an asking price of £620,000 by an established childcare operator who is planning to convert the property into a seven bedroom children’s home and school, specialising in complex emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Sofia Beck of Christie + Co’s specialist childcare divison, who brokered the deal, comments: “This is another example of how Christie + Co has been able to complete a sale on premises which offer alternative use with D1 consent. This former nursery is now in the process of being converted into a children’s home by an established operator with an excellent record of delivering high-quality care.”
