Leading business property advisor and care home specialist Christie & Co has announced the sale of Milton House Nursing Home in Gargrave, Skipton.
The two-storey, detached property, which was rated Good in its most inspection, was acquired by Lakhvendar Sohal, a businessman who plans to run the facility as part of the newly established Milton House Nursing and Care Limited company.
Mr Sohal said: “We are absolutely delighted with our purchase of Milton House. Our aim is to continue the high standard of care that is currently provided by the fantastic staff at Milton House with whom we will continue to serve Gargrave and the surrounding areas.”
Jonathan Wickens, Director at Christie & Co who handled the sale, added: “We are delighted to have worked with the previous owners, Winston and Carol Shutt and are pleased that they can now enjoy their well-deserved retirement, having sold the home. We were pleased to introduce Amarjit and his partner to the home and feel confident they will continue the great traditions.
“Despite widely reported pressures within the social care sector, the sale of Milton House highlights the continued demand for quality care facilities across the Yorkshire region. It also suggests there is a future for long term care in well maintained and caring environments, such as Milton House.”
