Oxfordshire continues to be a focus for development and Bicester is no exception with the population set to grow from 30,000 to 50,000 over the next 20 years. The Garden Quarter is one the residential developments supporting this growth and these are the 6 reasons why you should be thinking about it for your next move.

1. The Development

On the historic site of RAF Bicester the development offers a mixture of modern new build homes and beautifully converted Grade II listed cottages and apartments. Set within a conservation area and 23 acres of landscaped grounds containing nature walks and wildflower meadows.

2. The Houses

The converted properties include 1 and 2 bedroom cottages, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 1, 2 and 3 bedroom houses. The currently available new builds include 2 and 3 bedroom houses.
All of the homes at the development have been designed to make the most of the available space and maximise natural light, finished with carefully chosen, high quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

3. The Town

Bicester is an historic market town with a bright future with continual development planned for the next 20 years. The Garden Quarter development is a short walk from the busy high street, and Pioneer Square with excellent shops, bars and restaurants. There is also Bicester Village, a luxury outlet shopping centre just on the other side of town.

4. The Location / Transport

Bicester is perfectly suited for easy commuting to the surrounding areas and even further afield. Only 15 miles north of Oxford it makes travelling to the city centre and Science Parks a breeze. There has also been a lot of work put into the rail network in the town, with the Bicester North station providing a direct train service to London Marylebone in under an hour.

5. The Countryside

The surrounding countryside is filled with beautiful attractions such as Blenheim Palace with its fantastic events and grounds and Waddesdon Manor with rare artwork and wine collections. The famous Cotswolds are just a short drive away dotted with picturesque towns and villages.

6. The Rental Potential
As a letting agent we had to give this as one of the best reasons. If you are thinking about investing in a buy-to-let property The Garden Quarter is definitely worth considering. It is a fantastic new development in a growing area and we expect rental yields to achieve between 4.8% – 5.2% depending on the size of the property. We have also achieved the highest rent for a 1 bedroom apartment in Bicester on the development, a great record for the office.
