Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique opportunity to acquire a well-maintained three bedroom detached bungalow and established Cattery business, situated in an easy-to-access semi-rural location in a plot extending to 0.437 of an acre, boasting wonderful elevated views over rolling countryside between the large market town of Ashford and the Cathedral City of Canterbury.

The property provides well-planned, light and airy accommodation comprising entrance hall, sitting/dining room, contemporary fitted kitchen with a range of integrated appliances, three bedrooms and a contemporary three piece bathroom suite.

Outside, the property is approached via a large driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles which leads to a single garage.

The terraced rear garden is landscaped with a wonderful array of well-stocked, established floral and shrub beds and patio areas, lawn, garden pond and summerhouse.

The Cattery business was opened in 2004 and has since established itself as one of the leading choices of boarding sites for cats in Kent. No expense was spared when the purpose built accommodation was constructed providing 16 garden-facing pens with 60cm sneeze barriers and slimline panel heating to sleeping areas. The building also houses the Cattery office/reception and kitchen/food preparation room. The business has built up an extensive client list and would be available as part of the sale as a going concern.

The property is situated off the A28 in the semi-rural hamlet of Bilting, some 6 miles north east of the large market town of Ashford. Bilting sits amongst some of the loveliest Kent countryside, an area rich in farming and outdoor pursuits, with wonderful country walks available from the front door.

Ashford provides an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities along with out-of-town designer outlet shopping and all the major supermarkets including Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Asda within easy reach by car.

There is also a comprehensive public transport network including bus services to Ashford and Canterbury which passes the property. Ashford International Station provides high speed services to London St Pancras (37 minutes) and Eurostar connections to the continent.

This is a rare opportunity and we strongly urge any interested applicants to make immediate arrangements to view to avoid disappointment.
