Duke's Pampered Pets served Western North Carolina from December 2002 until Covid shut it down in 2020. They had a reputation for being a fun, safe environment for your family member to stay while you were away.  The property consists of 2 kennel buildings on +/- 5.7 acres. The boarding kennel did little advertising yet grossed in excess of $150,000 a year.  The property could easily re-open and be successful again!

The main Kennel Building is approximately 2,440 sq/ft with 16 indoor-outdoor runs, 9 indoor-only runs, 4 private suites, and a quiet cat room.  The private suites rented for a little bit more and are perfect for “mixed” families that want to stay together (cats, dogs, and even bunnies).

The “Haven” Kennel building was designed and run for rescues. It is approximately 1,900 sq/ft with 5 enclosed kennel rooms containing 2 or 3 indoor-outdoor kennel runs each. This gives you a total of 15 indoor-outdoor kennel runs.  This layout was designed to make quarantining of new dogs easy. In addition, there are two large kennel rooms perfect for cats or litters of puppies plus 2 quarantine rooms for cats. Both buildings have multiple outdoor play areas. All flooring is tile with tile walls separating each kennel and French drains in front for easy cleaning. Fencing and cross fencing helps ensure that a lose dog won’t get far. Although there is not a grooming room, both buildings have dog baths and space that could be converted for a grooming business.

The “Haven” was built with non-profit funds and the seller will donate the cost of the building to another rescue at closing.

There is a three bedroom house sitting downhill from the kennels that could be included in a sale. It has a quiet and peaceful backyard where you can relax away from the business yet be close enough to hear if anything needs your attention. The home is approximately 1,624 sq/ft with 3 bedrooms, 1 full and 1 half bath.

The property could easily adapt to other uses such as a brewery, art studios, or ------- whatever your need might be, this could work!

This is the perfect opportunity for an animal lover. Dog show handlers will see their business expand by keeping client dogs in one building while running the boarding kennel in another. Dog breeders will love the “Haven” kennel with the clean and quarantined space it offers for young puppies.  The location is rural yet close to the towns of Canton, Waynesville and Asheville and about 10 minutes from I-40. Dog shows, training classes and a multitude of new clients are right at your fingertips. Western North Carolina has truly gone to the dogs. Isn’t it time that you join us?

About Susan

My husband and I have made our home in the peaceful mountains of Western North Carolina since 1992 where we worked together in the running of our home remodeling business. Together we have built 4 homes and renovated another as well as renovated countless homes for clients. I have always taken an active part in the design and building of these homes. From hanging ridge rafters to laying hardwood floors, I have gained a great deal of respect and understanding of what goes into a well-built home. This love of homes and home construction is what led me to become a Real Estate Broker in 2003 and later a General Contractor. I am also active in canine sports, competing with my golden retrievers and organizing obedience trials as well as serving time on the board (past treasurer) of the Sandlapper Golden Retriever Club.  In addition, I am a stained glass artist and I take much pride and satisfaction in designing and creating glass art that I often donated to benefit rescues and canine health research.

Since starting my Real Estate Career long ago, I have won many sales awards and more importantly to me, several Quality Service Awards. For several years I was Broker in Charge of a small office, managing 9 other agents. Feeling the need to get back to what I love about real estate, I stepped down as the managing broker in 2017 so I could concentrate on 
my clients and their needs as a Broker Associate. I am now working with Sterling Real Estate Partners because of their creativity, marketing technology, customer service and their stellar reputation in the Asheville and surrounding markets.

I specialize in Residential Homes, Small Farms and Land Tracks with a special passion for Vintage Homes. When marketing a Vintage home, or helping a buyer with a purchase of one, you can expect a full essay on the "genealogy" of your home. One of my many obsessions is tracking the history of Asheville's older homes. My years working as a carpenters assistant as well as my beginnings in the marketing field will be used to your benefit when you are selling or buying a home. Of course for dog owners, my 20+ years of training and competing with my own dogs has given me an understanding that often a fenced yard for Puppy is not enough. Sometimes we need a bit more. For both sellers and buyers I recognize the unique needs that many of us
have for ourselves and with our homes.
