DOMESTIC EPC – EREF 6848 – Freehold Kennels & Cattery With Accommodation
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this freehold kennels and cattery with accommodation located in a rural area of Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. INTRODUCTION
This family run Kennel and Cattery has been established for an impressive 50 years and prides itself on the bespoke and intimate service it offers to its loyal customers. Their homely service offers a wide selection of food during the animal’s stay, fresh, clean water all day and will administer any medication necessary. Trust and customer satisfaction is key, so the Kennel and Cattery also sends pictures and offers customers face-times with their furry friends, to give them peace of mind that their pet is happy and well cared for. Due to this, the business is thriving and in the Summer months they currently have to turn customers away, as they are in such high demand.
Not only will the buyer be taking on an established and trusted Kennel & Cattery business, they will also gain a versatile bungalow home as part of the price. The beautiful bungalow consists of 4/5 bedrooms, large kitchen diner, separate utility room, two reception rooms, conservatory, one bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe area and large bathroom downstairs and a separate office/bedroom space. All recently decorated. The double garage and two further outbuildings means the home is very versatile, with lots of space. Furthermore, with the bungalow being situated on site, the buyer can enjoy the easiest and shortest of commutes! LOCATION
The location has the best of both worlds – it’s situated in a rural and tranquil area, with an acre of land comprising of both business and personal gardens – yet it is close to the local shops and amenities e.g Morrisons, Aldis, chemists, doctors, dentists, post office etc. Moreover, the premises are fully alarmed to ensure safety and security. REASON FOR SALE
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s desire to emigrate, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level. STAFF
The business operates with one member of staff in employment supporting our client and partner working on a full time basis. FINANCIAL DETAILS
Kirkby Kennels & Cattery has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong customer base.
