Westhorpe Hall comprises 11 bedrooms, a dining room, two lounges, a conservatory, and a kitchen on the ground floor, with a further eight bedrooms on the first floor. The second floor provides a living room, kitchen and a loft with external access. The home is situated in a wooded corner of a farm and also includes extensive grounds, a heated summer house and car parking area.

The home has a lot of character and charm and we felt it was a perfect fit for our growing portfolio.”
Robert Mellamphy, Director at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, said: “The marketing commenced in early September and we quickly identified an operator who was a good fit for our clients, who were looking for a quality operator to take a lease and be their long term tenant. The sale, on a company share basis, was concluded within three months.”
