Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has announced the sale of Lavenders Care Home in West Malling, Kent.

Lavenders is a well-established residential care home which is registered for 59 residents and occupies an attractive regency two-storey building originally built in 1820 which was systematically extended in 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2006, providing well-presented accommodation across three wings. It is located on circa 2.5 acres and has beautiful, landscaped gardens with views across the surrounding Kent countryside.

The home has been owned by the Webb family for over 40 years and was recently brought to market to allow them to retire.

Following a confidential sales process with John Harrison at Christie & Co, it has been sold to Eleanor Healthcare Group which operates a number of other care homes in the county.

John Harrison, Director – Care at Christie & Co, comments, “I am delighted to have completed the sale of Lavenders Care Home on behalf of the Webb family who have worked hard over their 40 years of ownership in both extending the home and creating the strong reputation which Lavenders Care Home enjoys. I am sure that, with Eleanor Healthcare’s considerable experience of operating other homes in Kent, a number of which they have also acquired through us, they will now be able to start their next chapter and enjoy the reputation which the Webb family has built up.

“A special mention to Matt Simmonds and his team at Brachers solicitors for their assistance with the transaction, also. This sale is a good example of the strong demand we are seeing for care homes in the South East from buyers we have registered, with a good number of other confidential sales in the pipeline.”

Lavenders Care Home was sold for an undisclosed price.
