2016 turned out to be a slightly busier year than 2015, but prices remained relatively disappointing and business was slower than we would have liked. The properties sold in 2016 came from all parts of the country and at varying prices, from £1,100,000 in Surrey to £435,000 in Yorkshire, and our current list of available properties demonstrates how widespread the market is, in terms of both price and location. A combination of Brexit fears and lack of lending kept the market quiet last year, but we are hoping to emerge from the gloom in 2017!
First Completion of 2016
We were delighted to assist in the sale of this beautifully renovated property, set in the gorgeous Cornish countryside. Brookfield Kennels & Cattery has an excellent local reputation and thriving trade, and we wish the new owners every success in continuing and expanding the business.
Last Completion of 2015
We were delighted to complete the sale of Westra Kennels in Glamorgan just before Christmas. It's a busy time for kennels but the new owners were pleased to get in and start putting their own mark on the business. We wish them every success in the future.
Character Property in Leicestershire Sold
Old Station Kennels offers a growing boarding business as well as the atmospheric former station building, built in 1883, which now forms the residence. We wish the new owners every success in their new venture.
Second Sale in Mid August
The second of the sales in one week was Willow Tree Country Kennels in Yorkshire. The vendors of Cosy Toes Kennels and Willow Tree were both delighted to be able to leave the hard work of the busy summer season to the incoming purchasers, who in turn were pleased that there was still plenty of business to come. A definite Win/Win situation!
Two Sales Complete in One Week!
We were delighted to bring two sales to successful conclusion during the middle week of August. The first was Cosy Toes Kennels in Herefordshire.
Growing Business In A Beautiful Rural Location
The sale of Trelawn Boarding Kennels has now gone through. We were pleased to be able to get the completion through in time for the rush of the summer season, and the new owners are hoping to get settled in quickly to begin their busy new life!
Fantastic Business Opportunity
We were delighted to sell Moat Farm to a couple who want to create a new kennel business. The property offers plenty of scope and potential for expansion with the benefit of existing good quality kennels. We wish them every success with their new venture.
Final Sale of the Year
In mid December 2014 our final sale of the year, Creusa Kennels in Cornwall, completed just in time for Christmas.
We were very happy to assist the vendors of Waunbricks in the successful sale of their property in mid October.
