The Court Nursing and Residential Care Home in West Felton, Shropshire.

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has announced the sale of The Court Nursing and Residential Care Home in West Felton, Shropshire.

The Court is a former nursing home comprising 34 single bedrooms in a detached three-storey building with a single-storey purpose-built extension. It is situated in the village of West Felton, Shropshire, approximately five miles from the market town of Oswestry and 14 miles from the county town of Shrewsbury.

The property has been sold to local husband-and-wife team, Mr Steve and Mrs Kerry Johnson, who plan to convert the former care home back into a domestic house with an annexe for Kerry’s parents. The required planning permissions were granted for change of use in December 2020.

Paul Reilly, Director at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, comments, “The home attracted lots of interest over a long period of time from both existing care operators and speculative developers. We had a few abortive sales as it was a sensitive local village who, in the end, were in full support of its change of use back to a domestic dwelling.”

The Court was sold off an asking price of £550,000.
