8th November 2018

A former NHS manager is enjoying her latest business venture after the sale of Haven House in Surrey.

Mrs Sheela Varughese beat 14 other people in a bid to acquire the grade ll listed building.

A first-time buyer, she was attracted to the former care home due to its size and location in the sought-after village of Knaphill, near Woking.

Recognising demand for quality residential care, the former NHS manager is looking to restore the property to its glory days and re-open it as a care home for the elderly.

Commenting on the transaction, Mrs Sheela Varughese said:

“May I take this opportunity to thank Asif Musa and the team at Redwoods Dowling Kerr for the service they have provided; we have been well-informed all the way through the transaction. I would definitely be interested in further acquisitions with Redwoods Dowling Kerr in the future.”

Vendor, Mr Kreshna Poonyth commented:

“I would like to thank Asif Musa at Redwoods Dowling Kerr for all his help in finding us an appropriate buyer for our vacant property.

“Asif also introduced us to one of their solicitors who quickly overcame any obstacles and made the whole process and handover period very smooth and seamless.

“I would recommend Redwoods Dowling Kerr to anyone looking to sell their business as they do everything they can to assist you in achieving the best price and the most appropriate buyer.”

Sales negotiator Asif Musa said:

“We are pleased to have found a perfect buyer for this vacant property within 2 months of it coming to the market.

As the seller had used one of our recommended panel of solicitors we were able to complete on the transaction very quickly. I wish my clients the best of luck with their plans moving forward.”

Haven House is a grade ll building that has been extended to provide versatile accommodation for up to 19 residents.
