    Default Calista care home


    I think the care home went broke in Dec 2007 from the date on the overdue bills.
    At some point after this a developer obtained the site and got a detailed planning consent in April 2010 for the demolition of the nursing home and the construction of 35 residential apartments for persons aged 55 or over.
    From the abandoned office it looks like he went broke as well as it's now back on the market.
    It's in a lovely location - this is the view
