Property in Oxfordshire
Living in Oxfordshire is about more than just its dreaming spires, classical architecture, picturesque villages and peaceful rolling countryside. Property in Oxfordshire very much sought after and is a highly desirable part of the country, offering a quality of life for property hunters wishing to live in a rural location but also combining it with pursuing careers in the city. With the centre of Oxford just a 50-minute train journey from central London, or an hour from Birmingham, the county’s excellent transport links make it an easily accessible location.
With the western edge of Oxfordshire situated within the Cotswolds, the honeyed stone properties that typify this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are much sought after. The pretty market towns of Woodstock, Kingham, Chipping Norton, Burford, Charlbury and Witney, and the many picture-postcard villages dotted in between, offer up a variety of housing stock which includes Cotswold stone houses of varying sizes but also many elegant town houses and new-build developments sympathetically designed.
The beauty of Oxfordshire extends also to the rest of the county. Stretching across the southern Midlands where the ancient market towns of Banbury and Bicester preside, across the rolling hills and meandering river valleys to the outer reaches of the Thames Valley and to Oxford itself, this is a place rich in heritage and architectural splendour.
Achieving an enviable work-life balance is what living in Oxfordshire is all about. Whether your passion is an outdoor sporting activity such as golf, cycling, tennis or walking, or if you just enjoy meandering through the many antique shops and farmers’ markets the region has to offer – this is the place in which to pursue it.
