Specialist business property adviser Christie & Co has announced the sale of Abbotsfield Residential Care home in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.
The home was sold on behalf of Jeff and Lata Patel, whose family have run the service for the past 24 years, to experienced local operators Kim and Philip Rogerson.
Jeff said: “The decision to sell the care home was not taken lightly, but it was down to me and my wife fully retiring and wanting to experience life to the fullest. The whole family wishes that Abbotsfield continues to provide outstanding care to the residents there, and would like to take this opportunity to wish the Phil and Kim Rogerson the very best.”
Abbotsfield offers accommodation to 26 people and is spread across four floors, with bedrooms on the ground and first floor. The second floor contains a two-bedroom flat, which is ideal for owner’s accommodation or staff accommodation.
James Knight, Business Agent (Care) at Christie & Co who handled the sale, said: “It has been a pleasure working with Jeff and his family and for all the work they have had to put into getting the sale over the line, in the current climate which we find ourselves in this has been an excellent result for all concerned. The sale was concluded to an experienced local operator Kim and Philip Rogerson who we would also like to wish all the best to for the future and alongside their other home this will be a fantastic purchase.”
