Sanders Senior Living to develop new care home site in Leicestershire

Knight Frank, the leading global property adviser, has advised Sanders Senior Living on the acquisition strategy for a new care home development in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.

Sanders Senior Living has completed the transaction for the development of a new, future-proofed care home facility in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire which will comprise 60 bedrooms on a one acre plot. Each room will have en-suite wet room provision and residents will have access to a range of best-in-class communal facilities including a dementia café, hair salon, communal lounges and landscaped outdoor spaces with seating areas to enhance residents’ wellbeing.

Located in the main urban area of Melton, just a fifteen-minute walk from the train station, the care home consists of good-quality, inclusive and sustainable design and is regenerating the former Sandicliffe Ford car sales pitch site.  Achieving planning in April, construction on the site is due to start next week.

Sanders Senior Living develops luxury care homes and is a sister company to Runwood Homes Ltd, the UK’s largest privately-owned care home group that owns over 70 care homes nationwide, operating circa 5,000 beds. In 2020, Knight Frank advised Sanders Senior Living on the acquisition of a similar site in Worcester, The Belmont, which is now operational.
