Care home developer to create luxury £10m property with cinema and salon

2 Mins

The debut development, which will be located in Dorset’s Wareham, hopes to become a major investor of luxury care properties across the south of England.

Speaking of lavish properties near the coast, Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet is the previous owner of a home in Cornwall. In April it was placed on sale for £400,000, more than double the price she paid for it following the success of blockbuster Titanic.

The founding team collectively has over 100 years of health and social care experience, which comprises development and operation of private care homes. Meanwhile, Albion Ventures is a principal shareholder alongside the senior team, which has ensured ACC has the funding it needs to get its venture off the ground.

With the homes running under the Mayflower brand, the first care home is set to open in summer of next year. Facilities for the 64 residents will include a cinema room, hairdressing salon, café, purpose-built activity areas and landscaped gardens, according to ACC.

Further luxury comfort is set to be provided by en-suite bedrooms, while care services available are for residential, nursing and dementia.

Mike Parsons, chairman of Albion Care Communities, said: “Albion Care Communities has been established in order to respond to the growing demand for premium care homes for the elderly across the South of England.

“The Wareham site is at the heart of the local community and fits very naturally with our model, which is focused on delivering premium care services to private payers. We have secured further development sites and significant funding facilities which underpin our ambitious investment programme.”

One British entrepreneur declared he was selling his $26m New York townhouse to return to the UK.
