Located in the Herefordshire village of Llangarron between Monmouth and Ross on Wye, Dovecote Care Home has been purchased by specialist care operators CareTech Holdings PLC.
The home previously provided residential care for up to 15 residents (old age & dementia) until its closure in November 2015.
DC Care was instructed by Simon Haskew and Neil Vinnicombe of Begbies Traynor, acting as Law of Property Act Receivers.
DC Care’s senior sales negotiator Clare Jones managed the disposal of the closed home and was delighted with the outcome for the vendors. "Finding a suitable purchaser for Dovecote was a challenge for us due to its rural location; closed/former care homes are generally very sought after and attract a great deal of interest from specialist providers, property developers and house builders, but are most popular when they are situated in, or near to town centres and local amenities.
CareTech, which operates services in a broad range of sites from town centres to rural locations, intends to adapt the building to become a specialist care service and was attracted by Dovecote’s quiet, village setting."
