Care home and supported living scheme approved for listed property

Yorkshire-based care home company, Springfield Healthcare will begin work on a £15m transformation of Grove House, a grade II listed building on Skipton Road, Harrogate.

The six-acre site was purchased by the CEO of Springfield Healthcare, Graeme Lee in 2017.

Now that planning consent has been secured, the listed building will be turned into a care home with 24 flats.

In addition, a 62-bed care home and eight houses will be built on land alongside Grove House, providing supported living for over 65s.

Grove House was built in 1745 and was the home of Victorian inventor, philanthropist, and mayor Samson Fox.

It became a hospital during the First World War and then the Headquarters of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes.

Springfield Healthcare has seven care homes in Yorkshire within its portfolio of homes, including Harcourt Gardens in Harrogate.

Lee said, “Our vision is to create a unique community concept which brings older and younger generations together.

“We are in very close proximity to Grove Road Community Primary School where we hope school children will visit and take part in regular intergenerational activities with the residents.

“At the core of the new care home scheme, will be exceptional care in luxury surroundings in the heart of the community.
