Why Wolvercote?

Wolvercote has all the defining characteristics of an up-and-coming area, right down to the period housing ripe for renovation and a weekly farmer’s market held on Sundays. The area is likely to get another boost early next year when the Oxford Parkway rail station at Water Eaton opens, providing fast train services to London every half hour. Young families are flocking to the area because of the highly rated schools, young parents are frequently seen in Wolvercote’s community café or in one of the two local playgrounds and the area has a community feel thanks to the 14th century parish church, friendly post office and local pubs. On hot summer days, local children enjoy fishing in the Oxford Canal or River Thames and if it’s cold enough, winter creates natural ice skating ponds on Port Meadow. It is easy to forget that Oxford city centre is only three miles away with frequent bus services. Wolvercote offers a wide variety of housing with three-bedroom thirties semis costing around £425,000 and farmhouses around £575,000. Smaller two bedroom cottages can be snapped up for around £330,000 and larger detached houses from £750,000. Winkworth Oxford’s tips: The Perch is a 300 year old thatched inn across the meadow on the river, no trip to Wolvercote is complete without a visit. We’re also fans of The Trout set on the banks of the River Thames - particularly in winter with its comfy armchairs next to the roaring fire, though in summer there’s a great outdoors area too.

First Impressions Count

As the saying goes 'you only have one chance to make a first impression' and this is absolutely the case when it comes to property, especially when a potential purchaser is coming around. Potential buyers do not 'see through the mess' and it will affect their desire to buy. Apparently it only takes a few seconds for someone to decide to buy which means that...

Who Would You Rather Meet On A Viewing?

As an agent who is passionate about property, I still find it astounding when I hear of other agents who are not.

Once the frustration had died down, I was then asked 'so, how do you know how much my house is actually worth'' This is always an...
