Swillbrook House, a converted residential care home on the outskirts of Preston, was sold during the final days of 2015 following a successful marketing campaign by specialist property adviser Christie + Co.
The home, which sold to an existing operator from the region, is registered for 23 service users and offers residential elderly care on Rosemary Lane, a rural and idyllic location in Bartle.
The house offers nine single, and three shared rooms located over two floors.
Gary Yeardley of Christie + Co’s Manchester office who brokered the sale said: “By utilising our client network, we have been able to match the previous owner with a care provider who already has facilities in the region and who is keen to expand in the North West.
“The sale of Swillbrook House is an example of the appetite for care and rest home facilities in the area. We are seeing an increase in enquiries from existing operators who are looking for properties across the North West, and the completion of this particular sale right at the end of the year shows that this strong demand will continue into 2016.”
