New homes at its Arncott Fields development in North Oxfordshire are keenly priced when compared to other towns in the local area including the historic town of Bicester and the city of Oxford. The stunning development offers a range of homes that don’t compromise on location, space or specification. With the additional help of the Government backed Help to Buy scheme, the amount homebuyers need to find by way of deposit and mortgage are greatly reduced.

The Shenstone and the Clovelly housetypes at Arncott Fields are perfect examples of the space and savings you could make by living just a few miles from Oxford or Bicester. In particular, the four bedroom Clovelly, recently reduced in price to £335,000 (£268,000 with Help to Buy) offers great savings when compared to the average price of a four bedroom property in Bicester at over £415,000. While in Oxford, the average price of a four bedroom home is over £500,000, according to property website Zoopla.

The four bedroom Clovelly, is a detached home with an integral garage. The lounge has a beautiful bay window to the front, and at the back of the house the large open plan kitchen, dining room and family area boasts two sets of French doors which fill the room with light. There is also a utility room and downstairs cloakroom.

Equally good value for money, the Shenstone housetype is a beautifully laid out four bedroom detached home priced from £350,000 (£280,000 with Help to Buy). It boasts a large family lounge with French doors leading out into the back garden, a downstairs study, as well as a spacious open plan kitchen and dining area with utility and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs, two of the bedrooms are en-suite, the master bedroom also benefiting from fitted wardrobes.

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.

Other local attractions include the beautiful architecture of Oxford and the 12th Century Augustinian Priory in Bicester, as well as the designer shopping paradise at Bicester Village and Garth Park which hosts an array of events over the summer months.

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 under an hour.

Under the Help to Buy Scheme, the Government lends up to 20% of the value of the property via an equity loan which can be repaid at any time or on the sale of the property, which is interest free for the first five years. The buyer then only needs a deposit of 5%, and arrange a mortgage for the remainder of the purchase price.
