Valley View Care Home sold for the first time to experienced operator
Valley View is a residential care home which provides personal care for old age, including those with dementia. It is registered for 59 service users and comprises 59 single bedrooms, all of which have en suite shower facilities.
Built by its previous owners Rex Develop Ltd in 2010, the home sits in a purpose-built, modern, four-storey property of traditional stone construction under a slate roof. It is in excellent condition throughout and has been maintained to a very high standard of repair and decoration.
The home is situated in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, and occupies an excellent position near local transport and surrounded by predominantly residential properties. Huddersfield is one of the main population centres of West Yorkshire, approximately 17 miles west of Leeds and 35 miles east of Manchester, and boasts excellent road links. Historically an industrial town, Huddersfield has undergone considerable development over recent years and boasts many national retailers and out-of-town business parks.
The business has been purchased by Visionary Care Limited. Speaking on behalf of the company, director Mr Tanzeel Younas says, “The acquisition of Valley View adds another dementia home to our existing portfolio of Residential and Dementia services and further demonstrates the family’s appetite for growth in the elderly care sector. The home is perfectly poised to benefit from our existing specialist dementia network and local infrastructure. The entire team at Visionary Care are excited to get to work with the amazing staff cohort in not only transforming Valley View into an outstanding home but also becoming the provider of choice for dementia care locally. It has been a pleasure working once again with Jonathan and the Christie & Co team to secure this addition to the Group.”
Jonathan Wickens, director of healthcare at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, comments, “We continue to see transactional activity in the care market from small independent homes to larger purpose-built care facilities. There has been much negativity in the sector since the beginning of March but, with the introduction of testing in care homes, the number of reported cases has dropped significantly, and we are starting to see occupancy levels rise again.
“Valley View is a fantastic purpose-built care home, and we are pleased to have worked, once again, with Rex Develop on this transaction and wish them well as they will continue to operate their remaining home, New Haven at South Elmsall. Visionary Care are a growing organisation in the sector, and we are sure that Valley View will go from strength to strength under the leadership of Tanzeel and his team.”
Valley View Care Home was sold at an undisclosed price.
