Oxford is home to some of the most luxurious and expensive homes outside of London.

With the gorgeous River Thames, a brand-new shopping complex and endless bars and restaurants – Oxford really is the place to be.

The average asking price for a pad in the city is treble the national average at £601,536.

With direct train links to London Paddington and Marylebone arriving in an hour or less, Oxford is the prime location for commuters looking to settle down and get a bit more bang for their buck.

Equally, Oxford is home to plenty of families who can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city centre mixed with the rural charm of the country.

Here are the five most expensive homes in the city centre on Zoopla right now:


Five-bed end of terrace

St John Street - OX1


This Georgian property on St John Street mixes old school charm with modern functionality and glamour.

The kitchen of the property is high-end and glossy with a huge central island which is the ideal place to entertain.


There are quirky design features fluttered throughout the interior, including the arch-walled detailing in the open plan living room.


The master bedroom features a glass staircase to a marbled bathroom which works well in contrast to the exposed wooden floors and vintage radiators.

Three-bed terrace

In the sought after location of Gloucester Green, this charming Georgian terrace tucked away behind St John’s Street, is just metres away from the Ashmolean.

The four-storey family home has period features throughout including original wooden flooring and cast iron fireplaces.
