Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has completed the sale of Clarence House care home in Ferndown, Dorset to experienced local operator, Southey Care Dorset.
Clarence House, which was previously owned by Shervey Ltd, is a purpose-built care home registered for 29 service users.
Charles Phillips, Director at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, said: “We are delighted to have acted on behalf of Shervey Ltd and it has been a pleasure assisting them with the sale of Clarence House. As they wanted a confidential sale, we immediately thought that Southey Care Dorset Ltd would be an ideal purchaser for this home. We approached them and a deal was agreed within a very short timeframe. This is the second care home they have purchased through Christie & Co, and we look forward to assisting them with any subsequent purchases in the future.”
Shervey Ltd Director, David Henson, said: “Having purchased Clarence House through Charles at Christie & Co in 2010, when we decided to sell, we immediately approached him to see if a confidential marketing process could be undertaken so as not to affect the business or residents. We are delighted to have agreed and concluded a sale to Southey Care Dorset Ltd and believe that, with their local contacts and knowledge, they will do extremely well at Clarence House.”
A Southey Care Dorset spokesperson said: “This is an ideal purchase for our company as our existing care home is close by and both homes will complement each other well. We look forward to working with the staff, residents and their families and hope that we will build on the home’s good name in the local area.”
