Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has completed on the leasehold sale of Maryfield Convent Care Home in Hook, Hampshire.
Maryfield Convent Care Home was formerly registered for 18 service users and comprises 18 single bedrooms and four flats spread across three floors. There is a large lawned garden surrounding the care home, and a convent with plenty of parking to the front. The property was built in the late 1970s and had been operated by the Dominican Sisters of Malta, who live in the adjacent convent, until a decision was taken to close the business in August 2021.
The site has been leased to existing care home operator, Pinnacle Care Homes Ltd, which plans to refurbish the building and reopen it as a care home for the elderly.
Speaking on behalf of the Dominican Sisters of Malta, Sister Mary Anne comments, “We were very sad to have had to close the business in 2021, but are delighted to have leased the property to Pinnacle Care Homes Ltd and look forward to working with them to re-establish a care home in the building. This is going to be of great benefit to the local community who we have served for a good number of years.”
Mr Sujith Nair, Director of Pinnacle Care Homes Ltd, comments, “Maryfield Care Home is a lovely property in a beautiful setting, and we are so pleased to be taking over the lease of the property. This will be our second care home and we are excited about rebuilding the business and working with everyone to create a caring and supportive environment for our future residents and staff.”
Charles Phillips, Director – Healthcare at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, adds, “We are delighted to have been able to assist the Dominican Sisters of Malta with the leasehold sale of their care home. A very good level of interest was expressed from applicants for a variety of different care uses resulting in a number of offers being submitted. This is the second care home Pinnacle Care Homes Ltd has purchased through us and we are confident that they will create a very successful business.
“There is great demand for care homes throughout the south of England, both on a trading and closed basis, as shown by the number of offers received during this marketing campaign.”
The Dominican Sisters of Malta were advised by Paul Daniels of RWK Goodman solicitors.
Maryfield Convent Care Home was sold for an undisclosed price.
