Matthew Liggins has sold a small piece of “England’s green and pleasant land” to a very discerning purchaser.

“Our client was delighted to have passed this over to the buyer…a project which has provided him with an immense amount of pleasure over many years.”


Musson Liggins acting on behalf of Woodward Veterinary Practice as property consultants have assisted with the acquisition of land and the development of a ‘STATE OF THE ART’ facility now open at Ivanhoe Business Park, Smisby Road, Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, LE65 2UZ.

The veterinary surgery includes 5 consulting rooms, a large reception and waiting area and substantial car parking.

It had a been an ambition for many years to move the established practice into purpose built premises with modern facilities for patients, clients and staff, providing improved access and parking whilst remaining as an independent business.

Musson Liggins acquired the land and provided monitoring throughout the project development.

The development completed in early 2017.


Matthew Wade of Musson Liggins acquired offices for Agrovista UK Limited and comments:

“We are delighted to have secured a new lease on behalf of Agrovista at the Nottingham Science Park. Location, flexible work-space and parking provision were very important to the client, factors which made Rutherford House the preferred choice.”
