Highwood Group agreed to purchase this site in Frome, Somerset in 2009 from McCarthy and Stone, having recognised the need for a quality care home in the town. The land, which is set at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills, lies in woodland and overlooks the River Frome.
The site in Welshmill Lane was a former gas works that manufactured town gas and, later, was used as an industrial site. Highwood worked tirelessly with Mendip District Council to design a contemporary development that met all the Council’s relevant design and sustainability codes.
Our development of the prestigious, and very specialist, nursing home was handed over to our development partner, Gracewell Healthcare, in June 2012. Named after the poet, Christina Rosetti, who lived in the town, this development is now known as Rosetti House and Gracewell Healthcare continues to market its availability for those requiring high quality, nursing care.
