Deceptively spacious and well screened from the road, this charming property dates from the early 1800's and was originally known as East Lodge, one of three lodge houses serving the Auchentorlie Estate. The property has since been extended by a previous owner and now provides rarely available family accommodation in a most sought after location.
Set amongst mature, established grounds the property benefits form a well balanced mix of old and new. Externally there are colourful planted sections, hedgerow screening, modern patio areas, elevated decking and the former garage has been transformed into a bar area and TV room. Internally there is the mix of traditional dimensions, a country style dining kitchen and modern 4 piece bathroom.
A winding pathway leads past established foliage to the original front door area. A bright hallway accesses the generous bay window lounge which has outlooks across the river and has ample space to accommodate a range of living room furniture and a dining table. The family sized dining kitchen has an integrated oven, hob and dishwasher and is finished in a white country style panelled design which is complemented by solid 'Butcher's Block' worktops. There is a door from the kitchen to the patio and fully enclosed rear garden. The fully tiled 4 piece bathroom is on the ground floor and has been tastefully upgraded to accommodate a stylish white suite and a stand-alone glazed shower enclosure with a 'rainfall' shower feature.
On the upper floor there are two well proportioned double bedrooms, each with inbuilt storage. The front bedroom has elevated views of the River Clyde.
Heating and Windows
The property has gas central heating, which is powered by a modern combination boiler. The windows are double glazed, as are the front and rear doors.
The front garden has a winding pathway with colourful, established foliage and two neat lawns. The rear garden is fully enclosed and provides a blond paved patio, a lawn drying green, an elevated timber deck and a timber out-house with a bar and TV area.
68 Dumbarton Road is conveniently positioned for easy access to local shops, Bowling railway station and bus services. Scenic walks at the Bowling Basin, The Forth and Clyde Canal and Kilpatrick Hills are within easy reach. For those commuting by car, the A82 Great Western Road is close by and provides quick access to Clydebank, Dumbarton, Loch Lomond, Glasgow Airport and M8 Motorway.
