Birtwick Park for sale with Christie + Co

A freehold investment opportunity in Suffolk is being brought to market by specialist childcare and education property adviser Christie + Co.


Birtwick Park in Kirby Cane has been a specialist residential school since its conversion from a residential dwelling in 2012. The school is operated on a lease by Specialist Education Services Ltd, which also operates a similar establishment, Avocet House in Norfolk, providing high quality residential care and education.


Birtwick Park draws in pupils from across the UK, managing the needs of its residents through the initial phases and working with them to achieve independence and educational excellence. The school, housed in a Grade II Listed building, has been skilfully refurbished and extended to provide additional facilities via a purpose-built teaching facility. It currently has capacity for eight full-time residents but plans exist to increase this to 11.


The property also sits in around six acres of land which include a stoked fishing lake and extensive gardens.


Dan Griffiths, Director in Christie + Co’s Investment team says: “Since its opening in September 2012, Birtwick Park is performing on track, within budget and weekly fee rates have remained constant. With tenant investment helping to ‘future proof’ the school, and further improvement potential — as well as a sustainable rent income — this is a superb freehold investment opportunity for a committed purchaser.”


Christie + Co is seeking offers in excess of £1.75 million for the investment. Interested parties should contact Dan Griffiths on 020 7227 0740.
