Graven Hill is the UK’s largest self-build and custom build community.
The first-of-its-kind site is based in Bicester and will house up to 1,900 beautiful and unique homes which are due to be built over the next 10 years. The development is set to revolutionise the way in which properties are designed and built by offering a flexible alternative to the usual routes. The plots will be surrounded by open, green spaces including woodland, allotments and a network of cycle and footpaths connecting to the town centre and local transport links, including one-hour train services to London. The village will also have a primary school and retail space. Graven Hill prides itself on making dream homes that are out of the ordinary, a reality for many.
The pioneering project is the vision of Cherwell District Council and spans 188 hectares of former Ministry of Defence land. Cherwell District Council is leading the way with its approach to housing provisions and is the fastest provider of new homes in the UK.
Karen Curtin, managing director at Graven Hill Village Development Company, said:
“Today’s announcement offers welcome financial support for millions of people. Not only will the stamp duty holiday assist first-time buyers, but it will also encourage existing homeowners, who may be considering a better-suited home, to take the next step up on the property ladder.
“Lockdown has given people the opportunity to re-evaluate their current property and whether their space still works for them. The Chancellor’s plans will give buyers the confidence they need to find their perfect home, in turn kickstarting the housing market and Britain’s economic recovery.
“At Graven Hill, we believe that compromise needn’t be part of the house buying process. Our custom and self-build homes ensure everyone can own a home that fits their needs, something that shouldn’t have to change during the pandemic.”
