Canterbury makes third purchase in Scotland


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

The Glasgow office of property agents, Christie + Co has sold the 51-bed Collisdene Care Centre in Strathaven in South Lanarkshire to Canterbury Care, on behalf of the previous owners, the Imrie family. The property was sold for an undisclosed sum. A substantial property, with three extensions, Collisdene is registered for care with nursing for elderly clients and adults with learning disabilities. Gary Walton, from Christie + Co’s Glasgow office, who handled the sale, said Collisdene was Canterbury Care’s third acquisition in Scotland and all had been handled by Christie + Co. “This was a confidential sale and we managed to identify a buyer quickly,” said Mr Walton. “The market has recently shown that homes which can be easily redeveloped, and where experienced operators can add value, are high in demand, particularly those with 30 beds plus.”
