Steve and Kerry Johnson have snapped up the former Court Nursing and Residential Care Home in West Felton.

The Court comprises 34 single bedrooms in a detached three-storey building, with a single-storey purpose-built extension.

The couple plan to convert the former care home back into a domestic house with an annexe for Kerry’s parents.

The required planning permissions were granted for change of use in December.

Paul Reilly, director at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, said: “The home attracted lots of interest over a long period of time from both existing care operators and speculative developers.

"We had a few abortive sales as it was a sensitive local village who, in the end, were in full support of its change of use back to a domestic dwelling.”

The Court was sold off an asking price of £550,000.
