The former Highfield Residential Home in Marlborough, Wiltshire

Having purchased the care home through Christie & Co in 2014, the owners successfully ran the business until it ceased trading in September 2023. The home is now being offered for sale as the owners are looking to concentrate on other business interests.

The property, which was formerly registered for 26 service users, is in good order throughout and comprises 24 bedrooms, 21 of which have en suite facilities, with residents’ accommodation over the ground, first, and second floors. It sits on a plot of 0.62 acres and comes with planning permission for an additional 18 bedrooms. The work has commenced so this planning permission is now live in perpetuity. To the side of the property is a large car park and to the rear is a lovely mature garden with a patio and a range of trees and plants.

It is located within close proximity to Marlborough town centre with lovely views of The Common which is used for sport, recreation, and dog walking.

Subject to all permissions, there is great potential to either reopen the property as a care home or obtain a change of planning use for a variety of different uses, such as a hotel or residential use.

Charles Phillips, Director - Healthcare at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments “This is a great opportunity to purchase a former care home located in a popular, affluent, and sought-after area which offers great potential for new owners. Subject to all necessary permissions, the property could be suitable for a number of different planning uses and we are confident that a good level of interest will be expressed by applicants.”

The former Highfield Residential Home is on the market at £1,500,000 for the freehold.
