Family-run Beulah Lodge residential care home, located in Tunbridge Wells, in Kent, has been sold in a deal handled by Christie & Co.
The property was bought at auction by the Histed family in 1987, who renovated the site and opened Beulah Lodge. The home has remained under the same family ownership until recently, when the Histed family decided to retire.
The business has been sold to BLTW Care, which also operates Crest House in East Sussex.
Histed family representative Rebecca Lince said: “We approached John Harrison from Christie & Co to advise the family on a discrete sale of Beulah Lodge as we wished to retire. We are delighted to have now sold the business to BLTW which successfully operates a similar sized care home already.”
BLTW director Ilker Djavit said: “We are delighted to have bought Beulah Lodge after searching for the right care home for some time and are excited about continuing the strong reputation which Rebecca and the team have built up at Beulah Lodge as a successful family-run business by using our experience in the care sector.”
Christie & Co’s John Harrison added: “I’m very pleased to have been able to assist the Histed family with their retirement plans after operating Beulah Lodge in Tunbridge Wells since 1987 and to have been able to find in BLTW a care home operator which already has experience of successfully running care homes in the South East. We are continuing to experience good demand for care businesses in this region.”
