Bracken Ridge Manor Care Home Sold by Redwoods Dowling Kerr
1st September 2020
Previously operating as a mental health care home, Bracken Ridge Manor resides in the popular town of Loftus, Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Following the establishment of the care home in 1985 by the vendors, Bracken Ridge Manor had quickly built up a reputation as the premier care provider for mental health, schizophrenia, manic depression and behaviour disorders.
Lying off a main road, the property is a brief walk away from a wide selection of local shops and amenities. With easy access to the A171, as well as excellent public transport connections close to hand, Bracken Ridge Manor proves an excellent destination to commute from.
Fronted by mature gardens, the commanding 2-storey building is approached through an iron gate and across an elegant slabbed pathway. Within the property lies 13 single bedrooms and 2 double bedrooms that previously housed the residents, in addition to 4 bathrooms and a separate shower room. Further within Bracken Ridge Manor lies a dining room, lounge area, games room, office space and a fully equipped commercial kitchen.
Pursuing retirement, the vendors made the difficult decision to place the property onto the market. Understanding Redwoods Dowling Kerr to be the market leader in the UK healthcare property market, we were formally instructed to facilitate the sale. After an extensive marketing campaign, a suitable buyer was identified, and Bracken Ridge Manor was sold. The buyers now intend to convert the former care home into a large residential property.
The vendor commented;
“I dealt with Marc Holmes and Nick Shepherd and found the service excellent. They were very helpful and professional in some difficult negotiations. I would not hesitate to recommend them in future. Thank you”
The buyer commented;
“We would like to thank Redwoods Dowling Kerr especially Marc Holmes for helping us secure our new home bracken ridge manor through some very hard times (Covid 19). Without Marc’s 100% correspondence and professionalism we would never have got through this as our deal nearly never made it, but we got there in the end. Marc answered every call, email I made in which there were many he kept all parties involved up to date and in the loop, this was very reassuring and gave us the confidence that our buy would succeed. We would not hesitate in using Redwoods Dowling Kerr again. We very much appreciated the work and effort he did for us.”
Lead Negotiator Marc Holmes commented;
“The sale of Bracken Ridge Manor is a testament to the resolution of both our vendor and the incoming buyer. The sale suffered a significant delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent UK lockdown. However, neither party waivered and through grit, determination and constant communication from all sides the transaction was successfully concluded in July 2020.”
