Specialist property adviser Christie & Co has announced the sale of Oriel Lodge residential care home in Bath.
The 20-bed home has been on sold behalf of Grove Care Limited to Oriel Lodge Limited, part of the Huskards Care Group, which operates care homes in the West Midlands and Berkshire.
Christopher Taylor, a Director of Grove Care, commented: “We are delighted with the sale and we are sure that the management of Oriel Lodge Limited, under the leadership of Bilal Raja, will continue to provide the very best care for the residents of Oriel Lodge.”
Bilal Raja, Director of Oriel Lodge Limited, added: “I am very excited to work with the Oriel Lodge family. On viewing the business for the very first time, we were struck by the quality of the staff and excellent care provided.”
Royds Withy King Solicitors acted for Grove Care while Oriel Lodge Limited was advised by Gisby Harrison.
Rob Kinsman, Regional Director of Christie & Co, said: “Having sold Oriel Lodge to Grove Care in 2004, we are delighted to be part of their ongoing strategy. We negotiated a deal swiftly and with minimum fuss and I am sure that Oriel Lodge will continue to thrive under Bilal’s guidance and stewardship. The market for quality care homes continues to thrive despite the highly publicised challenges the social care sector is facing.”
