Specialist property adviser Christie + Co is selling the former Purbeck Care Home in Wareham, Dorset, on behalf of Joint Administrators, Duncan Swift, Miles Needham and Jeremy Willmont of Moore Stephens LLP.


Located in the delightful village of East Stoke, approximately four miles from the well-connected popular market town of Wareham, the site comprises a variety of buildings which are set in 17 acres of grounds encompassing a main building, formerly known as Binnegar Hall (unlisted), lawned area, paddock, walled garden and workshops.


The main building benefits from accommodation on the ground and first floor with a large cellar and loft space.


Set to the north eastern side of the site are four purpose designed two-bedroom bungalows which were built in 2011, each with their own enclosed garden.


A further three separate accommodation blocks, providing 14 en-suite bedrooms, are located in a small courtyard area along with a separate management office with a one-bedroom flat above.


To the south eastern side of the plot is an area called ‘Lavender Fields’ on which indicative plans have been drawn up for the creation of 23 houses, subject to necessary consents.


The business went into Administration on 15 July 2014 having previously been registered for 52 residents with learning disabilities.  It is now being offered for sale with vacant possession.


Charles Phillips of Christie + Co’s Winchester office says: “Subject to all necessary consents, there is tremendous potential for this site to cater for a variety of different uses.  The property is set back from the road in a tranquil location and viewings are highly recommended”.


Christie + Co is seeking offers of £2,500,000 for the freehold interest.
