Yeovil care home sold to Rose Care Group after 24-year ownership
Beechwood House, which has been the subject of considerable investment and improvement over recent years, is registered to accommodate up to 28 elderly clients. The home comprises 27 bedrooms, all of which have en suite facilities, as well as numerous resident day rooms, bathrooms, ancillary space, and an attractive enclosed courtyard style garden with areas of lawn, established planting and patio/sun terrace area for the residents to enjoy.
The business is located to the south of the town centre of Yeovil in Somerset, in a predominantly residential area with good road links.
Beechwood House has been owned by Rita Gibb since 1998 and, most recently, been run by her son-in-law, Adrian Rogers. With Rita now looking to retire and Adrian and his wife looking to pursue other interests away from the care sector, they decided to instruct Christie & Co to market the home on their behalf.
After a confidential, targeted marketing campaign which resulted in excellent interest and multiple offers being received, a sale was agreed to Paul Nery of Rose Care Group for whom it becomes his eighth home.
Adrian comments, “As a family, we are proud of Beechwood House and the home we created for our residents. It is important to us that the new owner will build on the values and care Beechwood House stands for and, with Paul Nery and the Rose Care Group, we are reassured this will continue. We wish Paul and all of the staff the very best wishes for the future.”
Paul Nery comments, “I am proud to welcome Beechwood House, all the residents and staff into the Rose Care Group family. It is a beautiful home that puts the care of the residents front and centre. The whole team and I look forward to building on the excellent standards already in place.”
Simon Harvey, senior director in Christie & Co’s South West Healthcare team, who handled the sale, comments, “The home’s excellent reputation combined with its strong trading performance and the single storey accommodation made it an attractive proposition in which we were able to generate strong interest with bids from a wide range of parties, both existing operators and new entrants. Ultimately, Paul’s bid was successful, and we are delighted to have assisted the continued growth of Rose Care Group and enabled Rita to retire and Adrian to move onto the next chapter in his life.”
Beechwood House was sold for an undisclosed price.
