Christie & Co has completed on the freehold sale of Bentley Lodge in Bentley, Hampshire to local operator RMD Care.
Bentley Lodge Nursing Home boasts 56 en suite bedrooms and attractive gardens to the rear and side. The home is located in Bentley, which sits on the Hampshire and Surrey county border.
The previous owners purchased Bentley Lodge in 2000 and extended and upgraded the home, which currently holds a 'Good' CQC rating. New owner RMD Care also owns Westlands Care Home in nearby Four Marks and other homes across the Home Counties.
RMD Care director Abbas Merali said: “We are delighted to have purchased Bentley Lodge Nursing Home and look forward to working with the excellent team of staff, residents, and their families to providing the highest standard of care in a homely environment. This is a lovely home in the heart of Bentley, and we were attracted to the home in part due to its brilliant setting. We also operate Westlands Care Home nearby and look forward to bringing our local insight and years of experience as operators to Bentley Lodge.”
Charles Phillips, director of Healthcare at Christie & Co, added: “Having initially sold the home to the previous owner in 2000, we were very pleased to have been asked to market it when a decision was taken to retire from the care sector. With the previous owner requiring a confidential sale, RMD Care with their experience of doing similar deals and close links to the area, were the natural buyer for this business. We are confident that, with their knowledge of the care sector and local market, RMD Care will build on the business’s already good name.”
