Situated in the delightful and affluent Somerset village of Martock, Hurst Manor is a Grade II listed Georgian property built in 1828 faced in fine local ham stone with Welsh slate hipped roofs. Having traded successfully as a care home for the past 20 years, the property has been acquired vacant by the developers, and will now undergo a sensitive re-fit to offer new residents a stunning, peaceful and traditional setting in their later years.

Refit works will reinstate the grandeur of the property's reception and communal areas and create 30+ luxury, en-suite care studios furnished with high quality fixtures, fittings and fabrics in a traditional setting.

The leaseholds of individual care studios within the development portfolio can now be purchased by investors at a discount on their full retail price. Once purchased, the developers will lease-back the care studio from you for a price equal to 10% net for the following 10 years.

When the luxury refurbishment works are done, each property is relaunched with comprehensive regional marketing campaigns, and operated by an experienced care services business, 5 Star Care Home Management. With their luxurious interiors and premium-level fees, the care communities are clearly positioned as the premier care accommodation within their region, and targeted at self-funding, high net worth individuals and couples who can choose to either lease of buy their care studio.

When the developers have a resident for your care studio, they will buy it back from you for 10% net premium (guaranteed for 10 years) on your initial investment, giving a quick, healthy return on investment. You will then have the opportunity to reinvest in another unit if you wish. They also offer a 110% buy-back guarantee in Year 5, or 125% buy-back in Year 10, in the unlikely event that they haven't sold the studio to an end user by then.


Residential care home sector is currently worth £15.9 billion and is currently struggling with the high demand of elderly people needing a home. For the first time the amount people in the age group over 60 (currently 14million) is now outnumbering the under 16 age group (currently 11.5million).

Between 2012-2032 the population of over 85s (the primary users of care homes) is expected to increase by 106%, and the total number of older people with care needs is expected to increase by over 60%. There is growing demand for modern, fit-for-purpose care homes, funded by private investment.


A care studio is a well-proportioned en-suite living space in the refurbished homes, designed to make life easier for the resident and take away the everyday hassles associated with living at home in later life. With interior design by leading care specialist's particular attention has been paid to ensuring that safety features are incorporated, and consideration given at all times to the needs of those with mobility issues. Studios are provided fully furnished and ready to occupy, with a selection of colour schemes giving each space a unique look and feel, complemented by high quality furniture, fabrics, prints and accessories. All studios feature:

* Beautiful and luxurious interiors

* Fully Furnished

* High Quality fabrics and accessories

* Plasma TV

* Wi-Fi

* Fridge

* En-suite Wet room

* Nurse Call System


Homes which concentrate on privately funded residents, mainly in more affluent areas of the UK such as the south-east and south-west of England (where around half of all residents are self-funding) are performing well. Research by Knight Frank identified over a third of care homes assessed generating a return as a percentage of income in excess of 30%, with 9% generating profit margins of 40% or more. In contrast, poorly performing homes - generally more reliant on local authority funding which has reduced in real terms in recent years - are generating a return of 10-15%.


You purchase the 125-year lease of a care studio within the care home portfolio, at a discount on its full retail price. You will receive the title deed just like buying a residential apartment. We will then lease-back the care studio over 10 years from you for a price equal to 10% of your purchase price per annum. We will also market your care studio for residential sale, and buy-back the care studio for a 10% premium when we have secured a buyer, giving a quick, healthy return on investment. There is also a guaranteed buy back in year 5 at 110% and year 10 at 125%.


Our projects are traditional Victorian or period properties that have retained many of their original features and generous proportions, and have operated as care homes for many years. We renovate them to a 5-star luxury standard - typically within a 3-4-month timescale - and relaunch them as luxury homes for fee-paying residents who then buy or lease their care studio, care and support from us. As we are refurbishing well-built, vacant properties we are able to get them back on an operational footing and fee-generating in a fraction of the time of a new build development, usually without lengthy planning applications. There are an estimated 80,000 units in current care home stock that are reaching obsolescence, so refurbishment opportunities are plentiful.
