Kentish landmark changes hands

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

Philbeach Care Centre, a 61-bed dual registered care home in Hythe, Kent has been sold by the Swallow Group which has owned it since 1987. Property agents Highland & Co, who handled the sale, said the purchasers, Mr and Mrs Yilmaz, also own three other care homes in Kent. Ian Highland described Philbeach as an attractive, landmark building well known throughout the area. “There is strong demand at present for all types of care home, not just for properties of the type and size of Philbeach,” Mr Highland said. “We have various experienced care home operators very keen to extend their portfolio, as well as a number of first time buyers. “The level of recent demand has forced prices upwards and therefore, it is a good time to sell.”
