Christie & Co sells family run Poole care home
Specialist business property adviser Christie & Co has completed the sale of Lilliput House care home in Poole, Dorset.
The luxury converted care home with modern extensions has 54 single occupancy bedrooms with en suite facilities. Previous owners Mark and Louise Edney are retiring after being in the care sector for over 20 years.
Mark said: “Taking the decision to sell our business which we have enjoyed running since 2003 was a hard one and we are pleased that we appointed Christie & Co to act for us. The marketing process was carried out discreetly and professionally and we are glad to have achieved a sale to the new owners.”
A director from the home’s new owners, Lilliput House Holdings, said: “We are delighted to be purchasing this well performing care home and we wish Mark and Louise a relaxing well-earned retirement. The care home offers us a good opportunity to build on its already good name and we look forward to getting to know our residents, their families and new colleagues.”
Charles Phillips, Director at Christie & Co’s Winchester office handled the sale, added: “Following a confidential marketing campaign, Lilliput House garnered a high level of interest from local and national care operators. It has been a pleasure acting for Mark and Louise and we are delighted to have achieved a sale for them. We are confident that with the purchaser’s knowledge and contacts in the care sector, the business will flourish under their ownership.”
