Work commenced: November 2017

Sandra and James Dunn were not looking to move to a new property, however when Graven Hill’s Custom Build New Homes appeared online, they wanted to find out more. At the time, they were living in a two-year-old, three-bedroom property in an older part of Bicester, which seemed to tick all the boxes at the time. But this opportunity offered options that the couple hadn’t previously considered.
“The contemporary design and unique image of these customisable homes appealed to us from the start,” says Sandra. “Unlike other housing developments, Graven Hill is full of green space. The houses aren’t clustered into tightly packed areas; instead, thought has been given to the different areas of the site to ensure that it is not only practical for the residents, but also makes the most of the space and environment.”
The couple had lots of options to tailor the home to their preferences. They could pick the internal layout from a set of available designs as well as choosing fixtures and fittings.
“The customised floorplans enabled us to create a home that suits our lives,” says Sandra. “We decided to have a downstairs study room instead of a second bedroom as there are just two of us living in the house, but we have the option of knocking through the garage and opening up the entire ground floor to one large space in the future.”
