Office space at Arncott Fields

According to the Office for National Statistics, 5.4% of people said that they worked mainly at or from home in the 2011 Census . This means 1.4 million people need extra space in their home to accommodate their working life.

At Bloor Homes’ development at Arncott Fields in North Oxfordshire, the Shenstone or the Clovelly offers the perfect, flexible accommodation. These four bedroom detached homes enable home workers to separate their home and working life and shut the door on the office at the end of the day.

The Shenstone is a beautifully laid out four bedroom detached home from £350,000. The ground floor comprises of a spacious lounge with french door leading out into the rear garden, a generously sized kitchen / dining area utility and cloakroom. Also located downstairs is a study which is the ideal spot for home workers. Upstairs is a family bathroom, whilst two of the four bedrooms include en suite facilities with the master bedroom also offering fitted wardrobes.

The Clovelly, priced from £340,000 is an ideal opportunity for home workers. On the ground floor there is a large lounge with a bay window, an open plan family / dining / kitchen area and a utility room. Upstairs two of the four bedrooms include en suite facilities. The master bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes. One of these bedrooms could be easily designed to become a study, enabling home owners to have that flexibility.

Vanessa Macnee, Sales Director of Bloor Homes comments: “These spacious homes really do meet people’s need for extra space. With the accommodation allowing a room for a study, you can separate your living and relaxing space from your office, which means you don’t feel like you are on duty 24 hours a day. An added bonus is that the properties are available through the new Help to Buy scheme, reducing the deposit purchasers need to find.”

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 designer 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.

Arncott Fields also benefits from the Help to Buy scheme, which is available on all Bloor properties up to the value of £600,000.

Prices start from £350,000 (or £280,000 through Help to Buy) for the four bedroom Shenstone, and £340,000 (or £272,000 through Help to Buy) for the four bedroom Clovelly. Through the Help to Buy scheme, the Government lends up to 20% of the value of the property via an equity loan which can repaid at any time or on the sale of the property. The buyer then only needs to find a 5% deposit, and arrange a mortgage for the remainder of the purchase price.
