Bowling Alley Conversion

Converting a Bowling Alley into a Modern Home

Elvington, near York, is home of one of the most unusual homes in Britain. In 2006 a fifty year old derelict bowling alley was converted into a private home whilst still incorporating a 55 foot long bowling lane. The original bowling alley was built in the 1950s for US troops stationed at RAF Elvington and it was a regular meeting place for members of  the Strategic Air Command.

We helped rescue this iconic property & transform it into a modern family home.
