DC Care is delighted to announce the recent completion of the sale of a former care home previously registered for 32.

Silver Lodge, located in the desirable Chapeltown area of Sheffield is situated on a private road with a number of very attractive residential properties in the immediate vicinity. The large building, believed to date back to Victorian or early Edwardian times sits centrally in a good-sized plot with surrounding landscaped gardens.

The property was offered to the market for a variety of alternative uses including specialist care, independent/supported living, conversation and re-build, inviting a lot of interest from potential buyers. The home was acquired by MCH Diamond Property Limited, who intend to convert the care home into 14 apartments. These will be a mixture of 8 x 1 bedroom flats, 5 x 2 bedroom flats and a 1 x 3 bedroom flat.

The project will take 15 months from start to finish but MCH Diamond Property aim to phase the development so that they can release a number of flats earlier and not wait for full project completion.

Silver Lodge was appraised by DC Care's Northern Region Director Alison Willoughby and the sale was managed by Senior Sales Negotiator Lisa Rushworh. Alison commented; “The desirable location and great potential meant this instruction appealed to a number of buyers both in the care industry and beyond. I'm excited to see the development scheme the buyers have decided on come to fruition and look forward to working with them on other opportunities.

There is a clear demand for similar properties for this and other buyers, and I’d welcome confidential discussions with owners of smaller closed (or closing) care homes.”
