After 20 plus years the owner of this delightful home and business has brought it to the market. "The business of a dog boarding kennels has provided a home and lifestyle which is so highly sought after. It is one of only a handful of kennels businesses in Devon to operate with a 5 star licence". All the kennels are fully tiled with under floor heating, there is a smart reception, fully equipped kitchen and a dog grooming parlour on site. Two high fenced play paddocks offer the dogs' hours of fun with a sandpit, toys and trees for shade. In addition there are two further securely fenced fields for longer exercise, for owner's pets or for other business/leisure pursuits.

The property is well-situated, set back from a quiet country lane, with double gates opening to a parking area, where the 11' x 9'4 kennels reception/greeting office and adjacent 11'2 x 8'11 kennel kitchen is situated. Behind this building is access to the 20 kennels, completely private and not visible from any public area.

The main residence is at the top of the drive, which in turn leads onto a hard standing with parking for several vehicles in front of a double garage 20' x 17'9 and workshop 17'9 x 9'10 both with light and power. Next to this are two further kennels with runs and access to the gardens and grounds.

THE DORMER BUNGALOW
As you enter there is an entrance hall with a modern cloakroom. A door opens into the impressive bright and spacious open plan kitchen/dining/family room which is a wonderful space and benefits from a triple aspect with splendid countryside views.

The kitchen is extensively fitted with a range of stylish bespoke units with ample stone effect and woodblock worktops, an integrated fridge freezer, washing machine and wine cooler. Also in the kitchen is a twin oven oil fired AGA that is available subject to negotiation and there is also an electric cooker. A door leads to a useful utility room at the side which has built in storage and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer or dishwasher.

The kitchen leads seamlessly into a dining area and then a cosy family space with wood burning stove. From here is a door to a conservatory and sliding doors lead out to a superb south facing terrace which is partly covered and is a wonderful space from which to enjoy the far-reaching countryside views and a great place for barbeques.

In the middle of the property is the living room which also has a wood burning stove and stairs leading up to the master bedroom suite. A door from the living room opens to a hallway giving access to two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and there is a luxurious shower room.

Upstairs is the master bedroom which benefits from an ensuite bathroom, there are double doors at the end of the bedroom opening onto a large sun terrace with fabulous views of the grounds and countryside beyond and there is also access to a part boarded loft void.

THE GROUNDS
The grounds are approximately 2.5 acres and as well as containing the main residence and kennels, there is a pretty garden at the front, with a range of shrubs, saplings and flowering plants.

There are two large secure stock proof fenced paddocks at the very top of the land, with two smaller adjacent fenced play paddocks, one with sand pit. Currently, kennel residents have full use of all paddocks for free running. Next to the double garage are two separate lawned areas, edged with numerous shrubs and small trees.

Further useful buildings on the land are an open sided barn 33' x 17' with concrete base, there is a grooming parlour with raised bath and power shower and two useful utility stores with light and power.

THE BUSINESS
With many kennels not surviving the lockdown and pandemic, Towsers is one of only a few 5 star businesses in North Devon. Now trading quietly since a family bereavement in 2021 the potential to increase is immense, with numerous enquiries coming in on a daily basis. Anyone wishing to run such a business with an envious lifestyle has the opportunity to make it fly. The licence can take up to 32 dogs and is based on allowing 15 dogs per person

The trading figures are available upon request but as previously stated, the profit margin is exceptional and this is a great opportunity to generate an impressive income, and to enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in a truly peaceful and beautiful setting.
