Doneraile residential home in Newton Abbot, Devon, has changed hands for only the fourth time in its 46-year history. It has been sold for an undisclosed sum through the Exeter office of property agents Christie & Co on behalf of Mr and Mrs W Englemann to Mr and Mrs G Jones of Paignton. Simon Harvey of Christie & Co¹s Exeter office said Mr and Mrs Englemann were retiring from the care sector after owning and operating Doneraile for 19 years. They were the third proprietors to have owned Doneraile since it was established as a care home in 1955. “This is a first time care home purchase for the new owners, Mr and Mrs Jones,” Mr Harvey said. “Doneraile is a large, detached property situated in College Road, Newton Abbot, which is regarded by many as one of the most desirable parts of the town. The original building dates from the Victorian era and has been extended to provide additional bedrooms and owner¹s accommodation. It is set in attractive mature grounds in an elevated position with superb panoramic view
