Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has completed the sale of Down Lodge care home in Wokingham, Berkshire.
The home, which is registered for 16 elderly residents, was sold on behalf of previous owner Graham Casselden to first time buyer Vaida Elliott, owner of Berkshire homecare agency, Chrome Tree Care Ltd.
Charles Phillips, Director at Christie & Co’s Winchester office handled the sale, said: “Due to its location, quality and good proven track record, a good level of interest was expressed in Down Lodge during a confidential marketing campaign.
“It has been a pleasure acting for Graham in the sale of his business and we are confident that with Vaida’s local knowledge and expertise in the care sector, she will do very well with her first care home. We wish both parties all the best with their future plans. The sale of Down Lodge and the interest that was expressed demonstrates the strong demand being shown for care homes in the South and similar opportunities are required to satisfy the requirements of our applicants.”
The two-storey property comprises 14 single bedrooms and one twin bedroom, with seven of the rooms featuring en-suite facilities.
Vaida said: “Having owned and operated our homecare agency in Berkshire for a number of years, we felt that a move into owning a care home was a natural step for the company. We are delighted to have purchased a care home so close to our offices in Slough and look forward to being able to offer our clients excellent levels of care.”
