The Graven Hill site is located to the south of Bicester and will be the largest self-build development in the UK when completed. Spectacular views, open spaces and ancient woodland help make Graven Hill a great place to live.
Offering the best of both worlds, this 188 hectare site is located in an idyllic, rural setting with close proximity to the town. There is outline planning in place for 1900 new homes as well as plans for a primary school, community centre, nursery, shops and a local pub.
Graven Hill is perfectly positioned with excellent road and rail connections, lying just three miles from junction nine off the M40. It is also close to Kloeber’s Buckinghamshire Showroom which is only a short 10 minute drive away on the A41.
Cherwell District Council are the driving force behind the whole project, they have created both Graven Hill Holding Company Ltd and Graven Hill Village Development Company Ltd specifically to develop the site.
The building opportunities are vast to suit varied budgets and range from large plots for detached houses to smaller terraces, apartments and bungalows. There’s also the option of custom and community building projects as well as one-off self-builds.
Plots are released each year and this will continue until the site is built out which could take up to 10 years. The first plots were released for sale in August 2016 and details about future releases can be found on the Graven Hill website. If you are interested you can register here.
The houses will need to be built to either Code 5 or Passivhaus standards. Basically this means the houses will be sustainable, have low carbon emissions and will be built to a far higher standard than current building regulations require. You can find more information here.
Doors and windows play a massive part not only aesthetically but also helping you to achieve the above standards required. Kloeber can work with your architects and builders to deliver a glazing package perfect for your self-build project in line with Graven Hill’s high environmental criteria.
With an extensive showroom only 10 minutes from the Graven Hill site we would like the opportunity to talk to anyone who is interested in buying a plot and hope we can help in designing your dream home. Call our friendly team to arrange an appointment on 01487 740044.
