A former Padiham nursing home which shut just months after a critical report from a healthcare watchdog, is up for sale for around £300,000.

The Windsor Care Home closed its doors following a report by Care Quality Commission which said the home was failing on two essential standards during an inspection last year.

Inspectors had flagged up concerns about care, treatment and support that meets people’s needs and caring for people safely and protecting them from harm during the inspection which was published last July.

The Government body, which also made positive comments, said the Queen Street home needed to make improvements.

But the residential home has since stopped providing healthcare and the Victorian building has now been put on the market.

The 14-bedroom stone building, which was originally a doctor’s surgery and private residence, could now be sold for a six-figure sum.

Petty Estate Agents, which is handling the property sale, said: “The accommodation is arranged over two floors and has been converted to provide a care home facilities.

“On the ground floor there are two substantial lounges, two dining rooms with a further small lounge, three bedrooms, a laundry room, bathroom and separate toilet. The cellar has been used for additional storage and laundry facilities.

“There are many original features with attractive staircase leading to first floor that provides a further eleven bedrooms, a shower room, bathroom and office.

“The property has the benefit of smoke detector system, alarm bell calls and emergency lighting. The kitchen has a range of fitted worktops and stainless steel sinks.”

The building is set in grounds and gardens as well as a further substantial area of land which is leased from the Starkie Estate.

It is believed the property was put on the market in November last year for £295,000.
