We are delighted to announce that Latimer Lodge is the region's only care home that has been shortlisted for a prestigious regional property award this month.
The 5-star luxury home - which underwent an extensive refurbishment by The Care Home Group and opened in January 2017 - is one of eight projects shortlisted under the 'Residential Development of the Year' category at Insider magazine's South West Property Awards 2017.
Originally a beautiful Victorian villa built in 1889 before being extended and used as both a veterinary surgery and a care home, Latimer Lodge now caters for 13 residents with stunning interiors and fine dining, operated by the Group's care operator Caring Communities. It is the Group's flagship home - with the adjacent Tyndale House opening in the autumn of 2017.
The awards celebrate the achievements of those in the South West’s commercial property and construction sector, acknowledging those companies and organisations whose work has stood out from the crowd in the past year.
Winners will be announced at a black tie event at Bristol's Marriott Hotel on 5th October.
Sean Murray, CEO of The care Home Group said:
"We are delighted that the work and investment we have put in to bring Latimer Lodge back to life as a modern care facility has been recognised with our shortlisting. As Somerset's only shortlisted entry in this category - and the only care home on the shortlist - Latimer Lodge is a great example of how we are delivering the very best in care accommodation and providing new residential solutions for those in later life."
