Shared Ownership in Oxford
Why you should buy a shared ownership property in Oxford
It’s a cliché but so true: Oxford is the city of dreaming spires. Holed up in the nooks of the university, some of the UK’s greatest fantasy authors have dreamt of faraway lands and scribbled down the characters and chronicles of world-famous novels: Lewis Carroll, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis were all students here.
There is definitely an ethereal quality that lingers around the golden-hued university and although the university isn’t Oxford, it does define much of the city. That and its rambunctious trail of old-school boozers, many of which were the dimly lit meeting places of the university’s greatest minds. If you’re looking for a pub filled with charm that’ll pour you a fine pint, well, you’ve come to the right place. But the honey-coloured city isn’t just about the old haunts. Locals are a discerning bunch when it comes to gastronomy and sprinkled around Oxford are plenty of new spots to eat, drink and be merry, from funky neighbourhood gastropubs dishing up fusion dishes, to dinky joints with inventive sharing plates and potent craft cocktails to match. Crooked stone buildings are home to intriguing boutiques and characterful stores. And you can’t live in the cloistered city without punting down winding waterways. It’s pocket-sized and super easy to get around, too: locals potter about by foot and bike, and Oxford Airport is close by linking locals to destinations around the UK and beyond. With such historical charm, top-class culture, and old-school grandeur, it’s easy to be seduced by one of the UK’s most attractive cities – no wonder you want to put down roots here.
