A residential home in Andover has changed hands in a deal led by Christie & Co.

Arbory Residential Home comprises a manor house with 21 rooms and a three-storey building which was purpose built in 2006 and has 38 bedrooms.

In April 2018, planning permission was granted to extend the facility.

Previous owners, Vishal Shah and Barry Sweetbaum, directors of Banyan Residential Care Ltd, purchased the business in 2008. It was sold to Geraldine Smith, founder of Coate Water Care.

She said: “Coate Water Care is a family-run care home provider with welcoming and highly-rated nursing and residential care homes for the elderly located in Swindon, Wiltshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Gloucester.

“We specialise in providing personalised care for people who are living with dementia. Arbory Residential Home, with its dementia specialism and convenient location, is a natural purchase for us and we look forward to building on the good reputation that Vishal, Barry and the dedicated staff team have built up.”

Charles Phillips, director at Christie & Co’s Winchester office, handled the sale.
