‘Incredible’ £13m care home opens on historic Bolton site
Altrincham-based New Care has delivered the 64-bedroom centre off Blackburn Road, where the Egerton House Hotel once stood.
The firm, part of the McGoff Group, has announced the opening of the Bolton care home, which will provide 24-hour nursing along with residential, dementia, and respite care for residents.
Street Design Partnership is behind the plans for the centre, known as Egerton Manor.
Residents at Egerton Manor will have access to communal lounges, reading areas, and dining rooms, as well as spa-assisted bathrooms, a nail bar, and a hair salon.
Named after its predecessor, designs have retained a nod to the Egerton House Hotel with historical elements such as the building’s entrance and bay windows kept. Therefore, “Egerton House will continue to be the main feature on site”, according to a planning statement.
Dating back to 1860, the Egerton House Hotel closed in 2014 and the site had remained vacant since, having fallen into disrepair.
McGoff Construction partially demolished the original property and built the £13m centre on behalf of sister company New Care.
Walsingham Planning advised on the proposals. Also on the project team are TPM Landscape, Dunelm Ecology, GeoSmart Information, and Eddisons.
Cllr Linda Thomas, Bolton Council’s cabinet member for adult social care, said: “This will become an incredible asset for the people of Bolton, the facilities are superb and there’s simply nothing like this currently in our borough.
“It’s great to see how the development team has retained the recognisable frontage of the Egerton House Hotel which is now protected for many years to come.”
