Perhaps can try this in sqlplus

Set define Off;
Set feedback Off;
Set serveroutput On;
SET PAGESIZE 0
SET LINESIZE 1000
Spool results.log

select * from table1 group by column1;

Spool Off;
Set define On;

if you have toad, you can execute the query and give mouse click and save as "you can find one of  the option for saving it as csv file".

if you want to do it in sql*plus, then save the below in a testing.sql file and run it from sqlplus prompt

set echo off   -- this is to ensure that sql statement is not printed in the spool file
set feedback off
spool output.csv  -- to create a file named output.csv

select * from table1 group by column1;

spool off
set echo on
set feedback on

The sqlplus "set" options doesnt work from the SQL Developer screen.
You have to use the "sqlplus" tool itself for that.

Can you try the below :

Set echo off
Set define Off
Set feedback Off
Set serveroutput Off
set termout off
SET PAGESIZE 0
SET LINESIZE 1000
Spool c:/results.log

start c:/stmt.sql

Spool Off  
Set define On
Set feedback On
set termout on
set serveroutput on

FYI: --> for sql*plus commands you don't need a ; at the end
