Built in the conservation area of Millbrook in Stalybridge, the home provides personal care services for people requiring respite or long term care. The home offers luxury accommodation and includes a hairdressing salon, nail bar, piano lounge and library on site for the pleasure of residents.

Architects Quadrant ABS worked with Tameside planners to preserve the look and feel of the original school and many of the original features. The resulting building has beautiful, airy lounge and restaurant areas, light rooms and benefits from being at the centre of Millbrook village. As an added bonus, residents can sit on the sheltered sun desk or in one of the lounges with views of the nearby hills.
