Avery Park Takes Home Renovation and Refurbishment Award
Leading global property adviser, Knight Frank, has revealed the winners of the sixth edition of its UK Luxury Care Home Awards. It lists the UK’s top 100 luxury care homes and recognises three overall winners, each of which are judged on the quality of care they provide, the design of their homes and the strength of any renovation and refurbishment work undertaken.
The 2022 Renovation and Refurbishment Award, recognising the preservation of heritage and the quality of redesign and repositioning works, was awarded to Avery Park Care Home in Kettering, Northamptonshire. The local planning authority for the site required that the building retain the original Victorian Villa within the site. Therefore, the build involved the demolition of existing building units (except the villa) and the erection of a Residential Care Home for the elderly.
Julian Evans, Head of Healthcare at Knight Frank, commented: “Knight Frank’s Luxury Care Home Guide continues to go from strength to strength each year. The prestige of the Guide, which is well regarded as the gold standard of luxury care home recognition in the UK, is illustrated by the consistently high number of submissions received and the £2 billion in assets represented by the Guide’s top 100 care homes. All care homes recognised in the Guide have delivered outstanding levels of care over the past year. They continue to innovate, with resident wellbeing front-of-mind, to future-proof their homes and protect against future shocks to the industry.”
