Gloucestershire care home acquired by experienced local operators

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has completed on the sale of Hill Ash House Care Centre, a care facility located in the Gloucestershire village of Dymock, near Ledbury, to experienced local operators.

Set in the heart of the Gloucestershire countryside within five acres of beautifully manicured grounds, Hill Ash House Care Centre occupies a Grade II listed manor house, which has been tastefully converted and extended to provide 36 residential beds.

The home has recently undergone a substantial renovation programme, which has incorporated a range of services, communal areas and bedrooms. Each room offers flexible living options to cater for a range of tastes and abilities, with the added benefit of view across the expansive grounds or the garden’s ornamental lake, which is a focal point for picnics in the summer months.

The previous owners had owned and operated Hill Ash Care Centre for over a decade and they made the decision to sell, to downsize their existing operation. The business has been purchased by experienced local operators, who already own two homes in the area.

Simon Harvey, Director at Christie & Co handled the sale and comments, “We are delighted to have assisted the previous owners with the sale of their business. The size and style of homes such as Hill Ash House Care Centre are very popular with new entrants and experienced operators seeking to grow their portfolios. This sale demonstrates the appetite from local and regional operators to acquire homes where their local presence can have a positive impact on the business moving forward."
