Extensive Wiltshire care home property put on the market
The directors of the Hill House care home in the Wiltshire town of Chippenham have put the property up for sale as a going concern.
The property is set on over 11 acres of grounds and comprises a purpose-built, 42-bedroom care home constructed in 2016-2017.
The site also offers features a closed 18-bed care home arranged in a Victorian period property that offers development potential, subject to the necessary consents.
The smaller property was originally built as a shooting lodge and benefits from many period features, including wide, open corridors and large rooms with high ceilings. It is understood that Neville Chamberlain’s son once owned and lived at the property.
In addition, Hill House benefits from planning permission for six assisted living apartments.
The Care Quality Commission’s latest inspection in April 2019 concluded Hill House care home requires improvement.
“This really is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a state-of-the-art 42-bedroom care home with huge upside potential,” said Rob Kinsman, regional director at Christie & Co, which is handling the sale.
“The wider site offers longer-term development opportunities either by re-opening the original care home to extend the overall capacity of the site or perhaps converting the beautiful property into an assisted living accommodation scheme,” he added.
The freehold interest in the care home is being sold, to include fixtures, fittings and goodwill. Price is available upon request, said Christie & Co.
