HPC has acted for the vendors in the sale of Roop Cottage Nursing Home in the village of Fitzwilliam, West Yorkshire. The property is a substantially extended care home, built around a period house, and provides well laid out accommodation registered for 35 residents across two floors. Fitzwilliam is situated around 5 miles south east of Wakefield.
Roop Cottage had been owned and operated by the same couple, one of whom is a local doctor, for over 30 years, and had only become available due to their decision to retire. The home has been acquired by privately owned company SNSB Ltd., whose directors also own a care home in Nottingham and who have plans for further expansion.
The sale was handled by HPC Director Ian Wilkie, who commented, “The home has been successfully run by our clients for many years, and we are pleased to have been able to effect a positive conclusion to the sale of Roop Cottage to assist with their retirement plans. We know the purchasers have plans to build on the operating history of the home, and wish them every success in the future”.
The vendors were represented by Chris Welch of Sintons solicitors, based in Newcastle. Ian Wilkie added, “This is one of a number of transactions we have worked on with the Sintons team, and we are delighted to have concluded another sale which has benefitted from their professional approach.”
