Assisted-Living/Nursing Home Sold, Water Park and Campground Purchased


By Linda Cicoira — The new owners of the former Quail Run Assisted Living Facility and Arcadia Nursing Center, which was closed down last year, has a connection to Commonwealth Senior Living (CSL), formerly known as The Hermitage, in Onancock.

But the Gargatha facility is not likely to be geared towards older folks in the future.

The joint $2.6 million former 60-bed skilled nursing home and 42-bed assisted living facility was purchased for $250,000, on Aug. 13, according to records filed in Accomack Circuit Court. The property is at 17405 Lankford Hwy.

The buyer, Parksley Place LLC, has a principal office in Charlottesville, Va.,  at the same address as the company that owns the Onancock facility.

Mark Hubbard, a spokesman for CSL, said Wednesday the property was purchased because “it has great potential for investment. I can tell you that senior housing did not work at that location. It is our plan to look at alternative uses that would provide jobs and will benefit the community.”

Hubbard would not list the possibilities the new owners would be considering. “We don’t have specific plans,” he said. Parksley Place LLC and CSL are owned by the same larger group. “We’re glad that there’s local interest. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Eastern Shore community,” Hubbard added.
