In the midst of a busy year of lending, Puma Property Finance, the development-focussed property finance business of Puma Investments, has completed a loan to finance the development of a 90-bed care home in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

The state-of-the-art development will provide residential care for elderly people, including residents with dementia, and is expected to exceed typical new-build market benchmarks for quality and standards. 


Residents will benefit from a range of facilities, including ensuite wetrooms, a hairdressing salon, private dining room, arts and crafts room, cinema, physiotherapy suite, library, coffee shop, activity rooms and landscaped gardens. 


Tony Throp, Director at Puma Property Finance, commented: 

We are delighted to be supporting an experienced, family run care home developer-operator with the development of this premium care home in Harrogate. This is the second transaction we have closed with this client, following the successful completion of their care home development in Carlisle earlier this year.”
