Property description

Reference - 46433

Gunnerton Boarding Kennels & Cattery operated from a deceptively spacious, four bedroom detached and converted Saw Mill, which has been a loving family home for 35 years and sits in a plot of approximately 1.29 acres of land. The business is now only being offered for sale due to our client’s wish to retire.

The business is located in Gunnerton, Hexham, which is an affluent and sought after rural region of Northumberland. The business would ideally suit a family looking for a ‘lifestyle’ change, given the overall property size, gardens and opportunity on offer.

Hexham is a market town and civil parish in Northumberland. The business is extremely well known and very well respected, and has been trading since our client established the business 35 years ago. However, due to personal reasons the vendor has been winding down the business for the past five years and has recently closed the business in May 2018.

Under new ownership, a website could be created to reach a further client base and maximise profits. The same exists for a social media page, such as Facebook and Twitter. When the business was running the vendors had clients who would return on a regular basis, year on year.

The business was highly renowned and very well respected for the level of care given by the owner’s. Huge scope exists to build on the business for the future owners. Due to the sought after location and the huge grounds the property is situated in, there is the potential to run the business as a Bed and Breakfast.

This converted Saw Mill is laid out over 3 storeys and comes complete with 4 bedrooms. The property is presented to a high standard throughout, a viewing is highly recommended.
