Bloor Homes has announced the opening of its Arncott Fields development in North Oxfordshire. Located in Arncott village, the development will provide 48 three and four bedroom homes in a range of different house designs.

The homes offer perfect family accommodation. For example, the Oxbridge is a beautifully laid out three storey home priced at £249,950. The ground floor comprises a lounge, kitchen/diner with French doors to the garden, utility and cloakroom. The stunning master suite covers the whole of the second floor, featuring a bedroom with dressing area, wardrobes and en-suite. Two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom are located on the second floor.

For buyers looking for something a little larger, the four bedroom Hamilton is a detached family home priced at £309,950. The ground floor comprises a spacious lounge with French doors leading out onto the rear garden, a generously sized kitchen / dining area, utility and cloakroom. Upstairs is the master bedroom, which benefits from both en-suite facilities and fitted wardrobes, along with three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Lying four miles south of Bicester and 11 miles north of Oxford, the village consists of two neighbourhoods, Lower and Upper Arncott which are separated by the Bicester Military Railway. It is a peaceful village and the ideal place to bring up a family, with local schools to be found in the neighbouring villages of Launton, Charlton-on-Otmoor, Brill and Ambrosden.

Nearby is the historic market town of Bicester, with its 12th Century Augustinian Priory and the Parish Church of St Edburgs. The historic market square is actually a triangle surrounded by 16th century buildings.

Other local attractions include a shopper’s paradise at Bicester Village and Garth Park which hosts a programme of outdoor events throughout the summer.

Arncott is conveniently located for access to the M40 with its road links to Birmingham and London while regular train services run from Bicester to London Marylebone in just under an hour.

Currently available at Arncott Fields are six different designs of property with prices ranging from £249,950 for the three bedroom Oxbridge to £360,000 for the four bedroom Shenstone.
