Former Residential Home Widnes Cheshire WA8 8AZ
Ref: 2752 E
Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market this former residential home. The business was originally founded by our client in 1993 and comes to the market as our client looks towards a well-deserved retirement. This substantial freehold premise houses 25 bedrooms for residential and mental health care and has only recently ceased trading, but was registered for 26 residents. Set within approximately ¾ acre of land and comprises of the main building, a three bedroom detached house and an annex through to a flat. All sit within beautifully manicured landscaped gardens. The business when trading was very well known in the area with an excellent reputation for the quality of care. The business reported a turnover of £490,000 with gross profit at circa 50%. We are advised that there is the potential for the new owner to incorporate care for residents with Dementia as we are advised there is a shortage of this type of care within Widnes. In addition we believe there is the possibility to expand the living quarters by extending onto the land at the rear of the care home, (subject to the correct planning permissions). This could potentially double turnover. Included in the sale is the owner’s 3 bedroomed detached house. There is also the option to purchase this property separately. Early viewing of this well respected business with scope to develop further is highly recommended.
The business reported a turnover of £490,000 with gross profit at circa 50%.
The business is owner run and managed with the assistance of 15 members of staff.
The business is open all year round.
