A successful business with a family home in 2 acres on edge of Hurn Forest on the Dorset - Hampshire border
A superb family home with established business in 2 acres of land at St Leonard’s, Near Ringwood offers a truly ‘life-style’ opportunity.
Let’s start with the house, it’s a well-presented family home with accommodation over 2 floors. The sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room both have doors opening onto a south facing ‘sun-trap’ terrace. With 1 bedroom and a bathroom on the ground floor, and 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms on the first floor, there’s flexibility for either a family or B&B/alternative use.
The good-sized garden is fully enclosed with mature trees and completely secluded. Timber outbuildings house a hot tub room and gym, there’s a summer house, and private 3 kennels.
But it’s what’s beyond the house and garden that make this property so unique. For 50 years, the highly successful kennels and cattery business has been operated on the site, successfully evolving and establishing itself as a profitable business with a loyal client base. The facilities are superb, 3 buildings provide 48 heated kennels each with its own run, a 22-bay cattery, isolation units, exercise runs, a training paddock, reception area, staff facilities, stable block, grooming salon. The infrastructure is in place to purchase and run a thriving business, employing full and part time staff and providing a comfortable income for the owners.
From a business perspective, the location is ideal. Close to Bournemouth airport, the A31/A388 links to motorways, with Bournemouth, Ringwood, Christchurch and surrounding towns on the doorstep, it has a captive local clientele. As a place to live, the communications, schools and amenities nearby ensure you stay connected, but you can lose yourself for hours walking or riding from the door, through miles of paths and trails through Hurn Forest, and with the coast nearby, it makes for a perfect location in which to reside.
So, if a life-style change you’re looking for, here is a ready-made opportunity to take on a firmly established, successful business. Of course, a fine house with 2 acres in this excellent location offers considerable scope for a wide range of possibilities, and Symonds & Sampson’s Commercial and Planning experts are on-hand to discuss your dreams.
