New owner for Rochester health club, members club and party venue

​The highly regarded and long established health club, members club and party venue, The Roffen located in the cathedral city of Rochester has been sold through specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.

Situated on a large site in a commanding position with views of the River Medway, the business is housed in an old Victorian school attracted significant interest and has now been successfully sold to an experienced multiple site operator.

Brian Henslow, who owned and operated the club since 1981, said, “When it came to selling such a unique and rather complicated business proposition, Christie & Co was the obvious choice of agent and they managed the sale brilliantly. We went from marketing to exchange in just seven months with no issues as a result of their advice.”

Andrew Moore, Director of Christie & Co’s Maidstone office comments, “It was a pleasure to act on behalf of Brian and Sara Henslow, who have built up a well established and popular business in the city over the last 37 years. We wish them well as they head into retirement.

“The South East remains a highly popular area for buyers, whether they are first time buyers or investors, as the region is seen as a safe haven for their investment.”

Christie & Co sold the property off an asking price of £1,490,000.
