-- Four blocks to The Square - The square is home to a variety of shops and elegant boutiques including the south’s oldest department store. Around the bend you will find one of the nation’s most renowned independent bookstores and an art gallery featuring a variety of art forms and monthly showings. Extraordinary cuisine is also abundant around the Historic Downtown Square. From down-home southern cooking to elegant haute cuisine, there is something to satisfy everyone’s appetite. The epicenter of Oxford’s nightlife is the Square.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Originally from Jackson, Mississippi, I grew up spending a lot of time in Oxford visiting family and friends. My father was born in Oxford and my grandfather went to Ole Miss. I even spent a short time as a student at Ole Miss and have always loved the town.
I have lived in Nashville, Tennessee and most recently San Diego, California where I met my husband. After we had our daughter, I realized the greatest gift that I can give her is a Southern upbringing with all it's rich culture and history. So, we all moved back to Mississippi, and more specifically to my father's hometown of Oxford. Luckily, my California surfer-dude husband loves cornbread, sweet iced tea, fried chicken, pecan pie, and sittin' on our porch swing!
Why the Owner Chose Oxford: Location. Location. Location.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: I fell in love with this home because of its charm and location. It sits on half an acre in the heart of Oxford's Historic District. You can walk everywhere -- one block to Rowan Oak, four blocks to the Square and 10 minutes to the Grove or a ballgame. It also offers flexibility in living spaces. The main house is separated from the cottage by a screened porch. Both houses have privacy with outdoor living spaces too. There's plenty of off-street parking for both the main house and the cottage which is a big bonus on ballgame weekends.
