Kent sales suggest small is beautiful

Posted on December 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The recent sale of two purpose built nursing homes in Kent on behalf of Hamilton Healthcare Ltd to Barchester Healthcare plc illustrates the strong demand for smaller, high quality facilities, according to property agents FPD Savills who handled the sale. The homes are Seymour House nursing home in Rochester, and Keycol nursing home in Sittingbourne. The homes comprise a total of 117 registered beds in north Kent and are registered for elderly mentally infirm and young physically disabled care categories. In total the accommodation in question amounts to 91 single, 13 shared and 82 en suite facilities and there is planning consent for a further 75 single ensuites. Hamilton Healthcare Ltd is a privately owned, family run company formed in 1995 to operate the care homes which were developed by its sister company, Seven Kings Construction. The homes are built and furnished to a high standard with the single rooms ranging in size up to 17 square metres-plus en suites. FPD Savills healthcare director Craig Woollam
