In addition to a sophisticated 3 bedroom home, this property boasts a separate building which has been in use since 2001 as a HOBBY KENNEL- but was an international flower bulb importing business for 30 years prior. In the kennel building, first floor room (approx. 25’ x 40’) used for dog chores, grooming and obedience training. Refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, upright freezer, stainless steel 10” deep sink, separate Maytag stacking washer/dryer dedicated to pet needs, with plenty of storage cabinets and counters, & doggie door create a dedicated canine area. Shower room w/Hydro Surge dog wash system adjacent to separate handicapped accessible bathroom. Septic. Private well with owned water softener. Heavy duty electrical system supports dual motor blow dryers. Window A/C and natural gas thermostatically controlled heater keeps room at ideal temperatures. Industrial lift and interior staircase lead to 2nd floor, where additional training space and storage is located (currently in use as a billiards room and artist’s studio- could be set-up as accommodations for kennel help). Double barn-style sliding wooden doors lead out to separate 1+ acre with 6’ fence encompassing a level grass lawn large enough for agility practice or multiple training rings & three tree shaded outdoor double size kennel rooms on concrete with large pea gravel common potty area, blacktop ½ basketball court, & square foot style vegetable garden complete the back half of the property. Plenty of private off-street parking for cars & RV or box truck on long double driveway (blacktop with a gravel turn around area) with access to heavy duty outdoor electrical. Exterior spotlights. Bordered by 13 acres of undevelopable protected wetlands and woods on side and back assures privacy forever. Buildings currently serviced by satellite TV dishes. Large flat building roof superb for installation of solar energy panels – to go totally off the grid. Spacious four- room office suite in the kennel building with 5 impressive pine custom built-in work stations and bookcases, cabinets, counters ( 2 offices, conference room, reception room) with European style decorative ceramic tile floor, wi-fi computer connection, central a/c and baseboard heat provides a professional environment for running a small business or profession from home. Entire property of 2.29 acres totally fenced with 4 walkway gates and double-wide driveway gates– back acre sub-fenced as well for double safety. Invisible fence system installed along perimeter of property for additional canine security. ADT alarm system with connection for fire/police.

Borough residential zoning does not limit number of licensed dogs. Keeping a horse, poultry or livestock is permitted. Variance application for business use goes through the Planning Board. Noise ordinances in effect – especially after 10 pm.
