The first retail units and offices are available at the Graven Hill development in Bicester, either to let or for sale on a long leasehold.

The first new commercial units at the 550-acre Graven Hill Residential Development in Bicester are now being offered either to let or for sale on a long leasehold basis by White Commercial Surveyors.

Graven Hill is the UK’s largest self- and custom-build residential development, and it is creating 1,900 new homes, set across a beautiful site at Bicester in Oxfordshire. Construction is progressing well with Graven Hill well known and the subject of BBC’s series Grand Design The Street

Significant amenities planned include:

  • pre-school nursery
  • primary school (2.5 classes per year)
  • recreational areas and sports pavilion
  • pub/restaurant facility
  • community centre
  • allotments
  • several offices and retail units with separate employment space are also being provided.

Self-builders moving into their custom homes are providing a unique and vibrant community with site events, including picnics, BBQs, treasure hunts, and other seasonal activities, that are well supported by the Graven Hill community.

The apartments where the new commercial units are located comprise four blocks, two of which are already complete. The remaining two blocks are scheduled to be completed by the end of March 2021, with occupants moving in shortly after.

There are four commercial units available varying in size from 1,270 sq ft – 2,935 sq ft, and White Commercial are marketing them to let or for sale on a long leasehold basis.

Chris White, Managing Director of White Commercial, says, “White Commercial Surveyors assisted the developer in the purchase of the site in 2013 and have played a major part in the initial stages of the schemes undertaking but with particular emphasis on the commercial components of the development. The commercial hub and centrepiece of Graven Hill is now ready for retail/office and other occupiers and is located just opposite the new school, which is due to be completed next year.

“Bicester is a thriving expanding town and community boasting Bicester Village (with over 6 million visitors a year) and rapidly expanding residential and commercial facilities with 10,000 new houses panned and being built in the next 11 years. The town has excellent transport facilities by rail (2 stations including Bicester Village station) and by road with the M40 with the historic city of Oxford close by.”
