Oxford is well known for being one of the most expensive places to buy property in the UK outside of London.
The average asking price for a pad in the City is treble the national average at £601,536.
With direct train links to London Paddington and Marylebone arriving in an hour or less, Oxford is the prime location for families looking for somewhere busy and bustling yet symbiotically rural.
As a vast number of people settle into working from home due to the coronavirus, more people are looking to move a little further outside of the cramped capital to find outdoor space and fresh air.
