Oxford house description

This fully renovated historic home was built in 1898 and resides in the Central Historic District just 3 blocks from the Oxford Square. It features three bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. A master bedroom suite is downstairs, and two bedrooms and full bath are upstairsupstairs. Queen size beds in each bedroom and a queen size Frontgate Essential EZ Bed is available for and additional couple. (Check these out on the web: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYNNGGq99no) It features high ceilings (10 ft downstairs, 9 ft upstairs) and a warm ambiance and character that only comes with its more than a century of age. The home is loaded with art and has beautifully landscaped grounds. The neighborhood, although centrally located to the hustle and bustle of the Oxford Square, is quiet, beautiful and full of old trees. The home is located catty corner from St. Peter's Cemetery, where William Faulker is buried. (You might even want to join others in leaving a partially filled bottle of Jack Daniels at his grave!) NO AVAILABILITY FOR REMAINDER OF 2014.

Walk 3 blocks to the Square and take the Double Decker Bus to the Grove on football weekends!

          Location

          The Oxford Square features up-scale shopping, an extremely vibrant music scene, the finest bookstore in the galaxy, a wide variety of restaurants and exciting night-life. Thursday evenings during its season, don't miss Thacker Mountain Radio--a real gem of Oxford. The University Museum contains an astounding collection of Greek and Roman antiquity, art of the South, and regular special exhibits. And if you have not been to Rowan Oak--William Faulkner's home--it is a must see!

          About the owner: We are a retired and very active couple, who love Oxford and Ole Miss and want our guests to have a wonderful experience while visiting Oxford. Tom was a research professor at Ole Miss for 25 years; Carol was in small business in Columbia, Missouri before Tom brought her down to the little bit of heaven known as Oxford. We have grown children, an elderly cat, and a wonderful Bassett Hound who loves every living person and thing on this earth.

          This home resides just 3 blocks from the Oxford Square in the Central Historic Preservation District. It has character derived from its 115+ years, yet has all the modern amenities. It features large rooms, tall ceilings

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
