Conversion of Bungalow to Luxury Home


This luxury 5 bedroom home with adjoining granny annex was constructed by Ark Homes Ltd in Newbury.

We completely renovated and redesigned the layout of the existing bungalow, added a new first floor plus extensive roof space and an annex to the rear.

This bungalow sat on a generous plot, in a great location and by working with us on a design and build basis, it allowed the owners to extend the property to suit their needs within budget.

client feedback

“When we decided to take on a building project of this size with potential impacts on the family, we were obviously nervous and anxious. We then met Jason and the Ark Homes Team who delivered the project on budget, on programme and to the standard we expected – Ark not only did all three, but did it with skill, personality and good humour.”. 

“The experience was amazing. The house felt like our home from the day we moved back in, and we still can’t believe it’s ours and to still see people stop and look at our property is amazing.

The whole team was absolutely amazing, a pleasure to work with and a great example of excellent teamwork. To have a permanent site lead (Rory) and see Jason everyday, was reassuring and a comfort. The communications and accessibility of the team even at weekends is amazing.

We chose Ark because they were supposed to be brilliant. They were. We looked at their previous projects and met the clients and again received positive feedback.

I would recommend Jason and his team to anyone undertaking a building project and would be happy to talk to anyone on the phone or allow a visit to our house.

Ark Homes employ skilled and trustworthy craftsmen. Working with builders on any scale is all about ‘trust’ – and with Jason, you need have no doubts or concerns, when he says “don’t worry, it will be ok”. Don’t worry, it will be ok!

The finish, the touch and feel, the small details they suggested to make the house just so, are all testament to Ark and their quality and experience. That quality is felt right the way through the home.

I now have people I call friends as a result of working with Ark.”.
