DC Care Sells Halland House

On behalf of Colin and Pauline Burnett-Dick, DC Care is delighted to announce the recent successful sale of Halland House, a highly regarded learning disability care home located in the delightful East Sussex village of Halland.

The business was established in 1972 and operates as Gary Richard Homes Limited, named after Gary Richard the son of the founding Director. The home is run from two properties set within spacious grounds, providing residential care services for a maximum of 30 adults with learning disabilities each having a varying level of dependency from mild to moderate. In recent years the owners have made many changes, with much of the accommodation having been extended and refurbished.

The outgoing proprietors Colin and Pauline had owned the business since 2001, gaining an enviable reputation with the commissioning bodies, local authority and the CQC during this time. With Colin and Pauline looking to retire DC Care was instructed to market Halland House, the business was acquired by Primary Health Group.

Following completion, Colin commented “The sale of a care home you have built up over twenty years is always going to be a difficult decision. Choosing the right agent who will act sympathetically and have a good understanding of not just the market but the feelings of all concerned is essential.

DC Care handled our sale in exactly that way. Michelle and Andrew advised us every step of the way in a professional unhurried manner. We highly recommend them to anyone thinking of selling or buying into the care market.”

The sale of Halland House was handled by DC Care’s Southern Region Director Andy Sandel and Senior Sales Negotiator Michelle Natkus. Andy commented “Halland House attracted a lot of interest from specialist operators and strong first time buyers with experience in specialist care. Michelle and I would both like to wish Colin and Pauline a happy retirement and the best of luck to Primary Health Group with their acquisition.”
