Luxury care home developer and operator Hamberley Care Homes has opened Alston House in Eastleigh, Hampshire.Alston House retains period features originating from the building’s former life as a police station which was built in the 1920s. Development was funded by leading London-based investor Rynda Healthcare.The new luxury home comprises 80 bedrooms, a cinema, café and bar, family room, a hair and beauty salon, and landscaped gardens.
