Building next to the Nuffield

Recommended Posts

Having spent a few days at the Nuffield there is a beautiful building next door on the same side of the road.  I know it was a Care Home but is now closed down.  I am sure this was discussed on here and I have asked several people who know of it but nothing really about it.  

To satisfy my curiosity does anybody know anything about the building and who actually owns it?

Apologies part of the 2nd sentence should really read something like ................... I have asked several people what they know of it but nothing really

It was owned by Claridge Nursing Homes Ltd who developed the Hampton Grange Nursing Home and others and subsequently sold out to the Rotherford Group. It had a planning permission in 2012 for alterations (now lapsed) and a subsequent application was refused. Since then - nothing.

Thank you for that TWG - how strange to be sat on this property  - which must be worth quite a lot of money - when the care industry is in such chaos.

I think the above refs are related - further enquiries to be made in the not too distant future! I thought there was a housing shortage - just how many flats/apartments could be plopped here??

I wonder if this is still lying vacant talk about house developers hanging onto land rather than build the houses they have the planning for.

This building as I understand it is a Care Home that closed and now the owner is sitting on the site waiting for a better offer.
