Sale Completed in Record Time!

DC Care has completed the sale of the former Whorlton Grange care home, located just outside Barnard Castle, in County Durham.


The home, which closed very recently, was sold to Colin and Veronica Harper, who intend to transform it back into a private house. Set in expansive landscaped grounds, with a large Victorian conservatory, complete with original winding mechanisms for the windows, the property will no doubt make a very impressive residence.

The sale was agreed on a Monday, with completion taking place on Friday of the same week. Quite an achievement in the current market!

Alison Taylor, DC Care Business Appraiser commented: "This sale was completed in record time, entirely due to a strong team effort, with everybody committed to making it happen. Whilst it is always sad when a care home closes, I am sure Whorlton Grange will make a splendid house."


"Both Alison and Clare have been fantastic. They were consistently attentive, understanding and kept in touch right from the very start. We couldn’t have asked for more.I would be only too happy to speak with prospective clients to give a personal recommendation for DC Care."
