Northway House Nursing and Residential Home in Taunton

Northway House is a converted detached residential home registered to care for up to 29 residents. It occupies a convenient location in the Somerset town of Taunton which is well-served by road and rail.

The home, which has been owned by the same family since 2009, was brought to market to allow its owners to pursue other interests away from the sector. 

Following a confidential sales process with Christie & Co, a sale was agreed to Pebblestones Limited whose owners have extensive care home experience and currently operate Casterbridge Manor in Cerne Abbas and Casterbridge Lodge in Winterbourne Steepleton.

Chetan Borkhatria, Operations Director of Pebblestones , comments, “I have been in the care sector for almost 23 years and have seen it evolve over this time. Northway House was a good opportunity to add to the Pebblestones Limited group and, going forward, we will be undertaking a complete refurb programme at the home to complement the existing homes within our group.”

Simon Harvey, Senior Director – Care at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, comments, “We were delighted to be able to assist the owners in the sale of Northway House, especially having originally sold the home to them and, likewise, to have once again assisted Chetan in his business growth following his acquisition of Casterbridge Manor eight years ago. 

“This sale is yet another example of the demand that exists within the care sector in the South West, especially from regional care homeowners with an appetite to grow. With numerous other transactions ongoing and being agreed, despite the obvious challenges that exist within the sector and the wider economy, signs are generally positive for the remainder of this year and beyond.”

Northway House Nursing and Residential Home was sold for an undisclosed price.
