Just 12 miles from Oxford, The Oaks is situated on the southern edge of the thriving market town of Bicester. As well as being part of a modern new village with local amenities, you’ll also be close to the wealth of facilities and shopping opportunities Bicester has to offer. The Oaks is only 1 mile from the town’s historic centre, which has just undergone a £70 million redevelopment scheme to expand its existing attractions. There’s a new Sainsbury’s superstore, a new multi-screen cinema and new bars and restaurants for all to enjoy.Shop till you drop in Bicester...
Bicester Village, the well-known designer outlet shopping village is just a short walk from our new development and offers up to 60% reductions on an impressive collection of prestigious British and international luxury labels such as Mulberry, Gucci, Prada, Dior, Jaeger, Coast, Hobbs and Jimmy Choo to name a few. If all this isn’t enough, the serious shopaholics amongst you will be pleased to know the vibrant City of Oxford is within easy reach with its wealth of shops and eateries.
The Oaks is perfectly-positioned for commuters as it’s only two miles (via dual carriageway) to Junction 9 of the M40, which links north to Birmingham and south to London. This Junction connects to the A34 into Oxford, which is approximately 10 miles further. Bicester is also well connected via rail and has two stations, Bicester North with its frequent services into London in less than an hour and Bicester Town on an east to west line servicing Oxford to the south and Milton Keynes to the north. Bicester Town is undergoing a comprehensive rebuild with the new station and services to London Marylebone expected to start in summer 2015.The Oaks - a great choice for families
For families with children, Bicester offers a wide range of quality schooling. Home already to two secondary schools and nine primary schools, the new primary and secondary school on Kingsmere will offer even more convenient choices. There’s also an abundance of nature reserves, green spaces and children’s parks in the locality so you can make the most of the outdoors.
Bicester really does seem to have it all… A charming town, filled with everything you need close to hand, yet close to the larger centres of Oxford and Milton Keynes.
Bicester Leisure Centre offers a wide range of facilities including a fitness suite, 25m swimming pool, family pool, squash courts, activity halls and a crèche. And the keen golfers amongst you will be spoilt for choice as there are seven golf clubs in the area.
Kingsmere will be providing new sports facilities for the local community and the new secondary school. These will include sports pitches and two main recreational/public open spaces with extra facilities known as Pingle Brook and Whitelands.
Bicester has two secondary schools: The Cooper School and Bicester Community College, and nine primary schools. A new primary and secondary school are planned to be built on Kingsmere with the new primary school due to open in 2015.
The world famous Bicester Village has a wealth of designer shops and the recently redeveloped town centre is also a great place to while away a few hours. There’s also a weekly market, a farmers’ and French market. There should be enough variety for even the most ardent shoppers amongst you, but for a more extensive choice of shops, Oxford can be reached in around 30 minutes and central London within the hour.
The Oaks is located in an enviable location just off the A41 which provides excellent links to Aylesbury and Oxford. A short distance away, the M40 provides easy access to London and Birmingham, with both journeys taking roughly an hour. The town has two train stations with Bicester North running to Birmingham and London Marylebone and Bicester Town station running to the West Country, London Paddington and Oxford.
Bicester has a good selection of doctor’s surgeries and dentists. The nearest hospital is Bicester Community Hospital which is undergoing a £5 million redevelopment and is expected to open at the end of summer 2014. Proposals for Kingsmere include a Health Village which could provide medical related services such as a GP’s surgery and elderly care home.
