About Lesley Walkington

Originally from Jackson, Mississippi, I grew up visiting Oxford to see family and friends. My father was born in Oxford and my grandfather attended Ole Miss. After living in Nashville, Tennessee and San Diego, California for many years, I decided it was time to get back to my Southern roots. Luckily, my California surfer-dude husband loves cornbread, sweet iced tea, fried chicken, pecan pie, and sittin' on our front porch swing!

Lesley Walkington purchased this Bungalow in 2013

Why Lesley Walkington chose Oxford

Great location, private and quiet! It's walking distance to the Square and Grove.

What makes this Bungalow unique

This house is a craftsman-style bungalow, built in 1939 (apartment added in 1950's), with lots of charm and the best location in town. We are on a quiet cul-de-sac. It sits on half an acre in the heart of Oxford's Historic District. You can walk everywhere -- 1/2 block to Rowan Oak, about four blocks to the Square and walking distance from the Grove. The main house and the 1-bedroom apartment share one common kitchen wall, so it's still private and quiet. The apartment has a large back deck for relaxing and grilling out. There's plenty of off-street parking which is a big bonus on ballgame weekends.

                                                          Eight of us shared the house (house only - not the cottage) for an Ole Miss baseball weekend, and we all fit perfectly well. The house is very well located in a quiet neighborhood, in easy walking distance to the Square and campus. It's very spiffy - well appointed, and comfortable. Excellent beds, clean linens, plenty of towels, classy decor. We were very pleased - I would definitely recommend the Walkington House!

                                                          One surprise: the cottage is fully attached to the back of the house - not physically separate from it.

                                                          Hey David,

                                                          Come back anytime! I'm glad the house met your needs and was comfortable for all eight of you guys.
