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.

Western NC Boarding Kennel and Home with Multiple Income Streams

This boarding kennel and home on approx. 6 acres in the beautiful - and affluent - hills of Western North Carolina, while privately set well off the main road, is well known by the local residents, since it is the only one in town (zoned in county jurisdiction). The kennel does steady business year-round, as the numbers prove, yet the kicker in this deal is the on-site 3-Unit apartment building, and the steady income that it provides. Together, the two income streams make for a comfortable living in the fresh mountain air, surrounded by the wonders of nature.

Kennel has 24 Runs: 8 In/Outs w/ wash-downs. 8 Indoor only, and 8 Outdoor. Office and grooming/bathing rooms are in kennel building as well. All double fenced & well set up. 3 septic tanks are far more than adequate, allowing room for expansion if desired. Small cattery for the felines. Steady and loyal clientele.

The approximately 3300 sq ft. home has 3 bedroom and 3 bathrooms. The rooms throughout the house are spacious and comfortable, not pretentious; perfect for the mountain setting. Decks abound all around the house. There is a fenced pond next to the house where ducks swim and the owners dogs play. Paved Driveways follow conveniently from the house to both the kennel and apartment buildings.

The apartment building has 3 units: two 1-bedroom apartments, and one 2-bedroom. They stay rented nearly all of the time, and are far enough removed from the house to assure privacy for both you and your rentors.

This is a must-see property. It's mountain living at it's best: State/National Parks nearby. Secluded, yet near conveniences and not remote. A comfortable living right at home! The asking price is below recent appraisal value of just the property and stuctures.

North Georgia Mountains, Minutes From Atlanta

This kennel/home combo is a charmer.  From the time you pass through the gate at the foot of the drive and wind up the gravel drive through the woods the peace envelopes you.  Home and kennel do not share a main drive so it is easy to separate the two in the operation of the kennel.  Large parking area for easy access by customers and vendors, exceptionally well fenced and cross fenced.

Kennel features 48 large indoor runs, 24 of which are connected by guillotine doors.  Wide aisles and access doors make taking the dogs outdoors into large grassed paddocks a breeze.  The reception area features a small retail space, direct access to the cat room without going into the dog area.  The cat room has separate spaces for 18 cats or cat pairs. There is also a small lanai for the cats to enjoy the outdoors safely confined; they love to lounge in the sun.  The kennel kitchen is oversized and could easily be adapted to other uses.  It runs across the entire back of the building with doors to each section and to the outside.  Four separate heat and air units keep everything comfortable and can be turned off independently depending on occupancy level.  One really important feature of this kennel is the exceptionally good cross fencing.  Every area is separately fenced to minimize any possibility of accident.  It is evident that the owner is a real dog person.

The grooming building is across a courtyard from the kennel.  20 outdoor only runs, on concrete, adjoin both the kennel building and the grooming building.  Grooming building can be accessed without going into the main kennel, thereby assisting in keeping a quiet and serene facility. Room for three tables plus cage drying. Run drying in the adjacent outdoor runs is possible in the mild Georgia weather.  Adjoining this building is a small storage building.

Through another gate and you are in the house back yard.  Fenced of course.  There are lovely trees and perennials everywhere.  The house is a farmhouse with charm galore.  Knotty pine walls in most of the house and wood ceilings also. Brand new central heat and air plus a woodstove in the family room.  Two bedrooms with en suite baths, a small office or third bedroom.  Down a short hall is the dog room and laundry.  All of us know how important it is to have a dog room with outside access.  The kitchen is large and recently updated, new counter tops, new appliances.  Wonderful screened porch is off the dining area, what a lovely place to lounge and overlook the pasture. Living room and sun room feature glass doors to maximize light. Current package is with approximately 4 ˝ acres.

There are two barns and another small outbuilding.  Location is in the north Georgia mountains but only a few minutes from Atlanta.  People like bringing their dogs to enjoy a stay in the fresh mountain air and enjoy the trees, grass, and woodsy atmosphere. Well established business.

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.
