On behalf of Chris and Carole Tibballs, DC Care is delighted to confirm the recent completion of the sale of Boucherne, a highly regarded residential care home registered for 24, located in the desirable village of Maldon in Essex.
Boucherne is an elegant and substantial Grade II listed period property, extensively extended in 2002 to increase the capacity from 13 residents to 24. A summer house, garage block and outhouses containing the laundry room, dry goods and additional storage have also been added in recent years.
Seeking retirement after operating Bourcherne since 1988, Mr and Mrs Tibballs appointed DC Care to market the business. The home was acquired by Satyan and Vaishali Pala, new entrants to the care sector.
The sale of Boucherne was handled by DC Care’s Southern Region Director Andy Sandel and Senior Sales Negotiator Michelle Natkus. Andy commented “Boucherne attracted a lot of interest from existing local operators and first-time buyers alike. We were delighted to find a suitable buyer in Satyan and Vaishali Pala and wish them good luck with Boucherne. Michelle and I would like to wish Chris and Carole Tibballs a happy, well-earned retirement after many years of setting high standards of care.”
Following completion, Carole Tibballs expressed her thanks. “DC Care has guided us through all the trials and tribulations of selling a care home and has been available at all times to respond to many questions along the way. Michelle Natkus has been a delight with whom to work and has done all in her power to move things along and find answers when required. Thank you Michelle for your support.”
