Graven Hill is a ground-breaking project by Cherwell Council in Bicester, Oxfordshire. Having purchased a vast expanse of former MOD land they have divided it up into over 1900 individual plots which are being sold off to self-builders to design and construct their dream homes.

In 2018 Boutique Modern was approached by Pauline and Godfrey Brandt, pioneers of the project who had purchased one of the first 10 available plots at Graven Hill. Having struggled to finalise a mortgage for a modular build, as well as having unfortunately lost their first chosen manufacturer who unexpectedly went out of business, they came to us with a pre-designed home and clear ideas for the way their home should look and feel.

Just 7 months from initially getting in contact Pauline and Godfrey moved in to their finished home. Mortgageability was no issue with the Boutique Modern build system and neither was the Brandt’s selection of finishes, stained larch and white render to create a very clean lined aesthetic.

The project featured on Grand Designs: The Street which can be viewed on Channel 4 and All 4. Plot 9 was featured in episode 6 of the series.
