Oxfordshire is an English county located in the South East portion of the country. Oxfordshire County borders Northamptonshire to the North, Buckinghamshire to the east, Berkshire to the south, Gloucestershire to the west, and Warwickshire to the north.

Oxford, which is the county's most renown and desirable city, has a population of roughly 135,000 people. Granted the general populous is affiliated with the University, however, there are many residents who live in Oxford as a means to earn a living, or simply because they like the rustic or traditional setting. The typical piece of Oxfordshire property within the city of Oxford is a one or two bedroom flat.
The average prices for property within the city are as follows: 1 one bedroom flat, on average sells for 175,000 Euros, a two bedroom flat sells for 258,000 Euros, and a multiple bedroom house sells on average between, 260,000 and 550,000 Euros.
