Psst. Wanna buy a bowling club?

EXPRESSIONS of interest are being sought to develop the former Kangaroo Valley Bowling Club site.

Long regarded as having one of the best views in the Shoalhaven overlooking the township and valley, the property was purchased in April 2012 by Sydney company Melross Family Holdings for $800,000.

The property was previously owned by the Nowra Bowling Club and ceased operation in January that year.

A 15-lot subdivision has been approved for the location, with the company trying to enlist a developer to take on the project.

The former bowling club greens and clubhouse, off Marshall Street, will be demolished to make way for the subdivision, which will also border Quirk Street.

The blocks range from 800 square metres up to 1100 square metres.

Five blocks overlook the township while the blocks at the rear of the property have views of Mount Scanzi.

The former club is situated on a 1.44-hectare block and includes a three-bedroom brick cottage on one of the subdivided blocks.

Matthew Anstee of Raine & Horne Southern Highlands is handling interest in the property.

“There are lots of options for the block,” Mrs Anstee said.

“There is even the opportunity for someone to possibly resurrect the clubhouse, turning it into a function centre, but that would impact on the number of blocks available.

“The building would also need refurbishment and a new fit out.

“There is perhaps a chance to apply for a staged development application and maybe develop the back blocks on the property first, which would allow for the retention of the clubhouse and greens for possible other use.

“The owners are keen to sell the property and all reasonable offers will be considered.”

Expressions of interest close on May 30 at 4pm.
