Kingsmount Residential Home is owned by GrayAreas Ltd, a family-run business based in Torbay. Kingsmount Residential home is twinned with Mount Olivet Nursing Home, our sister home based in Preston.
Kingsmount Residential is truly one of a kind, having been built by the Singer estate during his time at Oldway Mansion – legend has it that it was built for his mistress who would use a secret a tunnel between the home and Oldway to meet her love in secret! Sadly, if such a tunnel exists, it has long been filled in. The tunnel supposedly originated below the front door which is now our Hairdressing Salon!
GrayAreas Ltd has owned Kingsmount since 2006 and has since then gone through a continuous programme of improvement including upgrading bedrooms, investing in high tech equipment and implementing new software solutions to help bring care in to the 21st century in order to concentrate on dedicating more time to providing the very best in person centred care to all our residents.
The current Owner of GrayAreas Ltd is Robert Gray who, with his late wife Cherry, started GrayAreas Ltd back in 2002. Robert now runs the company with his daughter Tori who has been with the company since 2009. Each home has a dedicated Registered Manager and they are supported by an Finance and Operations Manager.
