Initial interest in the neighbourhood has been high, with buyers recognising its modern, open plan design, alongside the effort made to also pay homage to the area’s history and architecture.

“St Edward is committed to creating high-quality new homes. However, we also want to knit into the local community and ensure we leave a real legacy. Through close working with Oxfordshire County Council, we are supporting the creation of a primary school, while cultivating a sustainable new neighbourhood with large areas of open green space.
