This included 84 affordable homes for shared ownership and rental.

Luke Southgate, sales director for Bellway Northern Home Counties, commented on the success: "From the moment we launched Grove Meadows, it was clear it would be popular with first-time buyers.

"We had designed a range of homes from two-bedroom properties through to four-bedroom houses at prices, which were accessible to the local market.

"Grove is a fantastic location and it offers excellent value for Oxfordshire."
