DUNARBUCK East Lodge is an­other well-con­cealed dual life­style prop­erty, sit­u­ated just off the A82 at Bowl­ing in an el­e­vated, tree-lined set­ting with scenic views to­wards the River Clyde.

Built in 1926, this de­tached one-off cottage spans an in­ter­nal area of 1,872 square feet over two lev­els in a re-con­fig­ured lay­out com­pris­ing two re­cep­tion rooms, din­ing kitchen, main bath­room and two ground floor bed­rooms.

More sur­pris­ing, the third bed­room oc­cu­pies the whole of the up­per floor – a huge 28ft L-shaped bed-sit­ting room with four Velux win­dows and an en suite shower room. This room’s size and shape of­fers myr­iad al­ter­na­tive uses/com­bi­na­tions and could eas­ily in­cor­po­rate a gym, art stu­dio, study or fourth bed­room.

This home has fine orig­i­nal fea­tures, in­clud­ing hard­wood floors, – most no­tably the her­ring­bonepat­terned par­quet floor in the din­ing room -– orig­i­nal doors and tim­ber-framed as­tra­gal win­dows. At the end of the hall, the liv­ing room has an open fire and strik­ing bay win­dow over­look­ing the gar­dens, while the fit­ted din­ing kitchen has a slate-tiled floor and Ray­burn range cooker.

This would be a very easy house to fall in love with, ow­ing to its unique blend of in­te­rior fea­tures, char­ac­ter, lay­out, and the most won­der­ful set­ting sur­rounded by open coun­try­side, yet close to Bowl­ing and Old Kil­patrick rail­way sta­tions, Ersk­ine Bridge, Glas­gow Air­port and the A82/ Great Western Road lead­ing east to the city cen­tre and north-west to Loch Lomond.

Dunarbuck East Lodge is an ap­peal­ing home for all ages and stages – for sale with Clyde Prop­erty in Bears­den at of­fers over £299,000.
