Great Kennel, Super Area, and a Lovely Home

Price reduced!

Great kennel, wonderful land, super area, and a Lovely home. Well situated in central NC; 2 ½ miles off I 77, convenient to both I 85 and I 40.  

Not often do you find the combination of a large and lovely well kept home, great personal dog facilities, and a profitable and well maintained kennel. This is that rare combination.

2500 sq. ft home with 4 bedrooms, two master suites, 3 baths, one with whirlpool tub. Open floorplan, ceramic tile floors, fireplace and a supplemental wood stove, super dog crate room opening into the completely finished double garage and directly out to the split rail fenced exercise/play areas in the back for the little dogs and on the large side yard for the big ones. Split rail wire backed.

Off the great room there are glass doors to the pool and a walkway out to the 16 additional kennels for personal or client dogs. This area has 16 10X10’s all roofed. They are in groups of 6-6-and 4. All open onto 100’ run areas.

The kitchen is galley style with new granite counter tops and new stainless steel sink. Bathrooms and kitchen all look brand new, and one of them is; it has never been used.

The exterior of the house is white brick, shielded from the road by towering Leyland Cypress trees, which also break the property into sections with evergreen screening. Approach to the house is two brick pillars and antique wrought iron gates.

The kennel is state of the art. 104 kennels—all in/out and washdown, most with paver tile floors in the aisles. All Mason fence, one entire building the 1” Mason. Two separate buildings plus two catteries, kennel kitchen, grooming and drying rooms. Nice reception area and kennel office. Owner’s office is upstairs and boasts a bath and lots of light, skylights, windows, and could easily be made into an apartment. Central heat and air throughout. All runs double security fenced and privacy fenced. Attractive entrance also gated with wrought iron gates.

The business is great. Fully staffed with long term employees. Owner selling due to retirement. This one is move in ready. You can begin making money on the first day. Doing a very good gross and could be increased by adding services.

Located within commuting distance of Charlotte, NC. The last one we had with this combination of pristine house and wonderful kennel sold very quickly, I expect this one will too.

Have You Ever Dreamed of Living Where No One Will Bother You?

10 to 20 Acre Parcels @ $5,000 per Acre.

We have parcels of 5 to 20 acres in a dog people only community, located between Asheville and Charlotte, NC. No dog limits, no county restrictions. Only deed restrictions are no commercial hog or chicken farms, no junk vehicles, and no mobile homes, and no loose dogs. Mountain views, some parcels with woods and/or streams, some mostly open except for shade trees. Paved road frontage with power and phone available. Priced at $5,000 per acre, minimum 10 acres, owner will carry financing with 20 % down. A total of 40 acres is available for sale, when that is gone no more sales.

This community has been planned for an active lifestyle. In case you are traveling or at shows there is someone nearby, but not in your pocket, to help if the need arises. The neighbors all have dogs and understand dog people. Most are retired or active show people.

You will need to plan and build your home and kennel, drill a well, and put in a septic tank. The only one built so far totaled 15 K for well, septic, and grading. They built a small log home. Total cost for 5 acres and a home was less than $150,000. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Call Tam directly for this one. We’ll be picky about the neighbors as this is the backside of my own farm.
