The new scheme — for which Sanders Senior Living received planning approval — will comprise 60 bedrooms on a one-acre plot.
Each room will have en-suite wet room provisions, and residents will have access to a range of communal facilities, including a dementia café, hair salon, communal lounges and landscaped outdoor spaces with seating areas to enhance residents’ wellbeing.
The care home will be located on the former Sandicliffe Ford car sales pitch site, within a fifteen-minute walking distance from the Melton train station.
Construction on the site is due to start soon.

“The group’s invaluable expertise and knowledge ensure that we will be meeting the needs of Melton Mowbray’s community in providing professional care, something that we pride ourselves on.”
Mandip Bhogal, associate in healthcare at Knight Frank, added: “We are proud to have supported Sanders Senior Living in this strategic acquisition and development opportunity, which will provide a premium care home for the local Melton Mowbray community.
“The demand for best-in-class care properties is only set to increase as the population continues to age.
“In addition to providing a significant facility locally, this development is also providing much-needed stock of fit-for-purpose, future-proofed, purpose-built care facilities with sustainability and a focus on residents’ experience at the heart of the design and development process.”
