Beechwood House Sold to First Time Buyer

Redwoods Dowling Kerr are delighted to announce the sale of Beechwood House, a highly renowned residential care home for the elderly in Glossop, Derbyshire.

Beechwood House operates from a highly visible and commanding nineteenth century property, which has been sympathetically updated offering spacious and versatile accommodation for up to ten residents. The home occupies a peaceful and private setting within easy reach of the village centre with public transport facilities and the motorway network close at hand.

The home has operated in the locality for many years and thanks to the hard work and dedication of the vendors, has earned a superb reputation for excellent standards of care, support and development.

The vendors, Mr and Mrs Kalliga, only placed the business on the market due to their wish to pursue other business interests.

Following a number of viewings, the business was sold to first time buyer Mrs Helena Brown. Mrs Brown sees an inherent potential within the business to increase bed numbers and turnover, and she plans to continue to evolve the business in the footsteps of the previous owners.

Mr and Mrs Kalliga, said: “We would like to say a big thank you for your assistance in the sale of Beechwood House Care Home. During the sales process you had kindly given very sound appraisals of market conditions which enabled us to optimise the sale. After a discreet visit, you were able to provide a realistic valuation, but then more significantly, and very much to our advantage were able to find a purchaser with proven funds available. It was a great relief not to have many potential purchasers looking round the home which would have led to suspicions from the staff and the service users.

“As it was, when it came to exchange of contracts, no one except our manager was aware of the sale. In the meantime you had guided us smoothly through the dealings with the solicitors and the CQC.

“We want to say a big thank you again to you and especially Anthony for a truly professional service in selling our Home.

The buyer, Mrs Helena Brown, commented: “I thought Redwoods Dowling Kerr’s services were superb, I’d happily come to them again and would recommend them to others.”

Anthony Rae from Redwoods Dowling Kerr commented: “We are delighted to announce our involvement in the sale of Beechwood House Care Home.

“Beechwood House has successfully operated in the locality for many years and was only offered for sale due to retirement. The business has earned an unrivalled reputation providing residential care to the elderly.

“Following a short confidential sale process, multiple offers were received from a variety of eager potential purchasers, which culminated om a sale to a confidential purchaser wishing to continue with the values and reputation built up over many years by our client.”
