Just a few blocks from restaurants, shopping and nightlife, the Walkington Cottage is the perfect retreat for any occasion. Located in the Historic District, a few blocks from the Oxford Square, the Walkington Cottage is nestled on a half-acre lot. You'll enjoy all the Southern charm this updated and restored 1950's one-bedroom cottage has to offer.

The Cottage features a spacious back deck, 12’ x 20’, that offers a great outdoor area for dining. The Cottage has a private and separate entrance from the Main House and off-street parking.

When you stay at the Walkington House & Cottage you are walking distance to many of Oxford's best attractions and activities, including:
-- One block from Rowan Oak - home to Nobel Prize winning author William Faulkner.
-- 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.
-- 15 minute walk to The Grove - the legendary tailgating area located in the center of the University of Mississippi's campus. It's the best pre-game spot to be!
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, MS, USA:
I chose this particular property in Oxford because of it's location. Walking distance to the Oxford Square and Ole Miss football games!
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.
