Listing #khf7058 Asking: $589,000
A great opportunity for a couple to run a small kennel (which is grandfathered in and expandable) in a growing area outside of Columbia, SC. 25 runs primarily for small dogs, separate building for large dogs or groups of little dogs. Two fully fenced yards (5 and 6 foot fencing) on 3.65 acres with 1800 square foot home built in “60’s. Many improvements, including new A/C and furnace Rheem, house was recently painted, brand new warranted Energystar metal roof. Large personal yard fenced with 4’ fencing. House is 3/2 with Master bedroom with attached bath, closets galore, two smaller bedrooms. Kitchen and living room now a single open floor plan. Still needs updating, but can be very comfortable. Sun porch, laundry room and kitchen have real knotty pine walls and cabinets. Two smaller bedrooms are painted and have new bamboo flooring.
Ten years of clientele building, would be ideal for a quality groomer (area has a number of mediocre salons) we get the repairs! Has supported 2 FT and 1 PT groomers with different strengths. Other partner could work front end and supervise kennel. It is a one person kennel and we have staff in place. We are noted for cleanliness, four yard exercises a day, superior grooming, and an owner occupied property where dogs are checked on during thunderstorms and fireworks.
Other options would be to convert the backyard shed into a cattery (we turn many away). Someone who is willing to groom cats ( a demand that is not being met). Expansion of one or both kennels. Retail sales. Training, the land on the North side of the driveway is level and could easily be used for obedience classes. This was my first venture into kenneldom, but after ten years and osteoarthritis it needs new younger owners with a vision. It is true, “Build it and they will come”.
