Set across a beautiful 188 hectare site near Bicester in Oxfordshire, Graven Hill offers you the rare opportunity to purchase a fully serviced plot on which to design and build your own home.

As a Local Development Order, giving pre-approved outline planning permission is already in place, it presents a low risk solution to the problem of finding suitable land to build on. Graven Hill is also an exciting and diverse new community in which to live.
