You will find your answer when you read Para. 7, Sh.5 to the Housing Act 1985 in conjunction with 'Your Right to Buy Your Home: A guide for tenants of councils, new towns and registered social landlords'.
Read together it is clear that the test to be applied is whether the property in question contains features substantially different to the ordinary dwelling house (by virtue of its adaptation); AND is part of a group; AND has special facilities nearby.
Whether any sinigle property falls within this exception to the right to buy has to be a question of degree in terms of the level of adaptation, grouping and services provided.
Should you disagree with the decision taken (that you cannot exercise the right to buy) you can always appeal that decision to the Residential Property Tribunal.
