Hampshire nursing home changes hands after 53 years

  • 8th May 2024

White Rock Nursing Home has been in the same family since 1971

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has completed the freehold sale of White Rock Nursing Home in Barton-on-Sea, Hampshire.

Owned and operated by the same family since 1971, the property is a 30-registered care home benefitting from 24 bedrooms and a strong local reputation for providing an excellent level of care for residents.

The business has a ‘Good’ CQC rating and a dedicated staff team, and specialises in providing care for those with dementia.

The home is situated in a quiet tree-lined avenue in the small coastal resort of Barton-on-Sea, on the edge of the New Forest National Park.

Following a confidential sales process with Charles Phillips at Christie & Co, and with funding sourced through Neil Collins at Christie Finance, it has been purchased by Sally and David Price who own another care home in Hampshire as well as a domiciliary care agency.

Siobhan Dodd, director at White Rock Nursing Home, said: “White Rock has been an integral part of our family since we opened the care home in 1971 and it has been a very hard decision to sell, but we felt the time was right to retire from the sector and hand the business onto a new owner.

“We are delighted that Sally and David will be taking over the care home and with their experience in the care sector we are confident the home is in safe hands.”

Sally added: “As local residents, David and I have been aware of White Rock Nursing Home for a number of years and, when approached by Christie & Co to see if we would be interested in purchasing it, we were immediately very interested.

“We already own one care home and also a domiciliary care agency in Hampshire and believe there will be great synergies among our businesses.”

White Rock Nursing Home was sold for an undisclosed price.
