Erwhir Care Home in Carmarthenshire, Wales, has been sold for an undisclosed price to local operator Scott Morris in a sale handled by Christie & Co.
The home, which can accommodate up to 15 residents, occupies a substantial Edwardian property in Carmarthen, some 30 miles northeast of Swansea. It enjoys a high occupancy rate, with a mix of self-funded and local authority-funded clients.
Erwhir Care Home has been owned by Aled Rees since 2000 and was recently brought to market to allow him to retire. New owner Scott Morris is a local operator with one other home nearby.
Aled Rees said: “The sale of Erwhir is quite a landmark in my life after owning the home for 22 years … It’s been a long journey in the life of a registered manager and I now feel that a rest from the sector is due. I would like to congratulate Scott on buying the best care home in the area. Scott has a fresh outlook, and he will ensure that Erwhir continues to develop and remain with a great reputation that started with the owners before me. The very best of luck to him, residents, and staff.”
Oliver McCarthy, associate director – care at Christie & Co, added: “I was really pleased to have been instructed by Aled to sell this home that has had so much work, effort, and love put into it over the years. I’m sure that, with his experience of the sector and knowledge of the area, Scott will make a great success of Erwhir Care Home.”
