Former care home & residence of the Earl of Wilton in Leicestershire goes up for sale

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has been instructed to sell the Grade II listed former residential care home, Egerton Lodge, in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.

Originally built in 1829 for the Earl of Wilton and used as a base for hunting and socialising, Egerton Lodge was turned into a residential care home in 1987, caring for residents across 44 impressive en-suite bedrooms. In June 2023, the home went into administration and business operations were taken over by Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group.

Located in the sought-after Leicestershire Town of Melton Mowbray, the home is positioned next to Memorial Gardens on Wilton Road, a prominent location within the town centre close to the railway station.

This sale presents an ideal opportunity for either existing care (C2) use or to redevelop for alternate use, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

Rosie Turner, Senior Business Agent – Care at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments, “I’m pleased to be marketing this vacant home for the Administrators at Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group. This impressive, well-located, 44-bedroom property presents a great opportunity for care operators looking to expand their portfolios, or for alternate healthcare use, subject to the necessary planning.”

Egerton Lodge is on the market with an asking price of £1.55 million.
