On behalf of Mr and Mrs Virji, DC Care is delighted to announce the recent successful sale of Field House, a high-quality residential care home located in the scenic village of Eye, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, registered for up to 49 service users.
The property was originally converted from a doctor’s surgery and established as an 11 bedroomed care home by Mr and Mrs Virji in 1991. Since then Field House has enjoyed an enviable reputation for the care and accommodation provided, due to the increasing demand for places the home was first extended to 16 beds, then 33 before the most recent addition of 16 single en-suite bedrooms taking it to its current capacity of 49. Today this modern, stylish facility is almost 80% purpose-built, with beautifully presented communal areas and spacious bedrooms.
The vendors, Mr and Mrs Virji appointed DC Care for a highly confidential sale, helping to ensure the continued smooth operation of Field House. It was felt a regional operator with other homes in East Anglia would be best placed to purchase the home and as such the business was acquired by Dr Ramkisson of RBL Care, already owning several homes located in Leicestershire and South Lincolnshire.
Following the sale Mr Virji said he chose DC Care to sell the business as he knew they were one of the most active agents in the healthcare sector, and on a personal level he found them to be particularly helpful and approachable.
Mr Virji also commented that in their retirement he and his wife intended to focus more time to their charity commitments and after so many years of taking separate holidays were looking forward to actually going away together!
