It is an 18 bedroomed single storey building.
Both are being offered freehold with vacant possession and interest is expected from builders, developers and investors.
Graham Barton, auctioneer, said: “Clearly one option for buyers is to return the buildings to their original use but each offers graphic
potential options subject to all the correct planning consents being obtained for residential development into a number of units.
“It might be that someone would wish to divide the properties up in some way.
“The buildings are both in desirable locations in the city opposite or very handy for areas of open space and I’m sure there will be high levels of interest.”
Residents were moved out of the two care homes in July this year following legal action.
The Herald reported in May how the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the health watchdog, had taken enforcement action against Park View after inspectors found medicines were not being administered properly.
And we also reported later that same month how enforcement action had been taken against Southview after CQC inspectors reported concerns with staff, medication management and record keeping as well as nutritional needs of residents, cleanliness, and the safety and suitability of the premises.
The auction takes place at the St Mellion International Resort on November 5.
