OUR latest Property of the Week is a five-bedroom detached bungalow in Bowling, situated in arguably one of the village’s most sought after addresses.

This well-proportioned family property on Manse Road is on the property market for offers over £285,000.

As you walk in the entrance vestibule to the home, you are greeted by a 34ft stretched hallway that offers passage to all apartments. The light, bright and spacious lounge has space for a three-piece suite and substantial lounge furniture and enjoys great views down the Clyde.

Walk further down the hall and you come to the hub of the property, as you find a stunning fitted kitchen which boasts a wide array of floor and wall mounted units, rear picture window, central island with stools beneath creating a breakfast bar on open plan with L-shaped configuration where the dining room meets and has ample space for a substantial dining table and chairs. Plenty of room to enjoy with friends and family.

Further features of this fabulous room include the American style fridge freezer and a range style gas cooker with an overhead extractor hood.

Off the kitchen, you’ll find a timber-framed sunroom which is ripe for conversion as a modernisation project.

There are five spacious and tastefully decorated bedrooms which could be utilised as further public rooms or study/office areas too if desired or required. A well-appointed family bathroom and separate shower room are also provided.

But now for the hidden feature of the property. Accessed at the rear of the bungalow, through double glazed French doors, you’ll happen across the 29ft room on the lower level, currently used as a games room with a built-in bar. This area has space for seating couches and a pool table.

This room could also be utilised as an easily accessible office space or perhaps as a workspace, treatment room or base for a business such as a dog groomer, hairdresser or physiotherapist.

This cellar area extends to virtually the whole length of the property and can be used for storage space or an opportunity for conversion to tailor to the buyer’s preference.

Additional features include gas central heating, double glazing, generous and mature split level garden grounds and off-street parking which can be found at the side.

Bowling’s essential shops are a short walk away, as is the popular Bowling Habour area, with its growing selection of businesses, its own beach and the Bowline – Scotland’s answer to New York City’s Highline, the Forth and Clyde Canal twopath to the National Cycle Network.

The A82 is close by, too, making road travel for work or leisure purposes easy
