4 Bedroom Town House For Sale
Bicester is perhaps one of the fastest growing and most popular towns in the South of England. The burgeoning community has seen an increase in every amenity at great speed in recent years and hence today this is a thriving town with huge opportunity. There are good local schools, a ten screen cinema, restaurants, parks, not to mention the improved and extended Bicester Village (a remarkably successful factory outlet for luxury goods, visited from worldwide). Commuting is exceptional to all points, with a direct rail link to Oxford (and thereafter Paddington), a fast train into London Marylebone (40 mins peak), plus the nearby M40 and A34. There is even a regular bus service to both Oxford and Cambridge just a few steps away.
The Old Court House is one of a very few ex-municipal buildings remaining in central Bicester that continue to exhibit their true origins within a residential space. The whole house is utterly intriguing, with evidence of its service as both Court House and Police Station at various points from its construction in 1857 through to the latter half of the 20th century. From cell doors to huge door locks, arc-framed roof trusses to tall, high-set front windows, a deep sense of the history permeates throughout - as well as a sense of fun. This makes for an interesting and rather special environment. And within the more modern period, the conversion to a house has been done with care, even the smaller touches such a heritage-style radiators are what we would hope to find. The house majors on huge downstairs space with large living areas that are rare to find. Sitting opposite the church and just a few moments' walk from the market square, from this front door every amenity is accessed, on foot, within minutes.
