Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a well established and highly renowned licensed boarding kennels and cattery, situated in the picturesque and much sought after village of Burton Overy, Leicestershire.

The kennels and cattery occupies a peaceful semi-rural location approached via its own private lane, with views over the beautiful surrounding open countryside, yet is only a short distance from Leicester city centre and within very short distance to the local dual carriageway.

The business is therefore ideally situated for neighbouring towns and villages, allowing a new owner to draw regular repeat and also new custom, from not only the adjacent locality but from throughout the Leicestershire area.

We have been informed by the owner that the area is undergoing a massive housing development within the area, which will ensure that the business will continue to thrive with more residents moving in to the surrounding area, generating further business and increasing the already impressive income.

Having been successfully operated by the present owner since 1983, the business has earned a truly enviable reputation, however during recent years our client has chosen to operate the business in a modest fashion due to their imminent retirement and relocation.

The business therefore represents an excellent proposition for an ambitious family who can introduce new and upgraded facilities, with the opportunity for a wider range of services, as well as maybe establishing a retail shop selling items such as food, collars and bedding, whilst also accommodating smaller animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds.

The business is only now being offered for sale due to retirement and relocation. A viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Registered for 30 dogs and 15 cats.

Current records and accounts can be inspected after a viewing.

Managed by the owner.

The property offers a versatile family accommodation with ample out building and storage facilities. There is a barn that te current owner advises can be used as a double garage for two cars.

The facilities are totally separate from the main dwelling. The kennels provide 28 individual kennels and there is a dedicated cattery unit with 10 pens.

The facilities are clean and functional, however there is the potential to renew the structure, creating additional units which would enable the licence to be increased.

The building currently used as an office with the grooming facilities behind can be converted in to a granny flat or staff accommodation.

The main dwelling is an imposing property providing a spacious and versatile family accommodation and briefly comprises of: An entrance porch, a hallway, a living room with a feature fireplace and a log burner and patio doors to the rear private garden, an open plan dining kitchen with a range of wall and base units.

To the first floor there are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single with a family bathroom.

Externally there is a stable block, a detached barn / storage area and well fenced quality grazing land and ample parking that can facilitate several vehicles.

We are advised that the property is available as a freehold.

We have been unable to check this information and advise prospective purchasers to consult their own solicitor for verification.

This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a substantial property set in an acre of land, with the potential to develop a successful business in a peaceful, yet easily accessible location. To avoid disappointment, a viewing is highly recommended.
