Care provider, Hallmark Care Homes has exchanged contracts on a 2-acre site on Manor Road in Woodford Green.
The family-run care operator acquired the site from the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association after a competitive bidding process, to develop an industry-leading care home for the local community.
The proposed start-of-the-art home will provide exceptional standards of accommodation, an array of extensive communal amenities and will draw on the latest technology in the sector, as well as providing the highest level of residential, nursing and dementia care, which will enable residents to enjoy life to the full.
Managing Director of Hallmark Care Homes, Aneurin Brown said: “The demand for new care homes continues to rise as people are living longer and needing greater support, and we are very excited to announce our latest acquisition of a site in Woodford Green. We are proposing to develop an outstanding, high-quality care home with luxury features such as a cinema, therapy room, and wellness centre which will help meet the growing demand for specialist care in the area.”
Chris Austin, Head of Property Services at Guide Dogs said: “Following the competitive bidding process, we’re delighted to have exchanged contracts on the sale of surplus land at our south east Regional Centre. The income we receive from this divestment will fund the overdue redevelopment of the retained land at Manor Road, providing state of the art facilities enabling Guide Dogs to support many more people with sight loss in the future. We look forward to working alongside Hallmark Care Homes, as we both undertake exciting developments at the site.”
Over the next few months, Hallmark Care Homes will be inviting the local community for its feedback on the proposed care home, ahead of the submission of a planning application next year.
