New homes mean that ​Bicester's no longer just for the discount fashionistas

A new phase of homes has been launched in the Oxfordshire town best known for discount fashion shopping.

Before the Oxfordshire town of Bicester became known for discount fashion shopping, it was famous for its RAF base, now being redeveloped into a new village-like settlement called Heyford Park. A new phase of homes has been launched, with 30 houses priced from £289,950.

The wider Cherwell district is a designated "growth area", with 3,000 homes in the pipeline including a new neighbourhood on the former Ministry of Defence site south of Bicester at Graven Hill.

Bicester is near the M40, and by 2016 the 55-minute train service to Marylebone will be cut by 15 minutes.

Kingsmere is another modern local village, where a broad range of community facilities and amenities are planned - pub, primary school, GP surgery, shops and sports park. Developer Countryside Properties is selling houses priced from £225,000 to £530,000.
