About this office

John D Wood & Co. Oxford estate agents are located in the centre of Summertown in North Oxford. Situated in a prime and busy high street location, the office attracts huge interest from people seeking both property to buy or to rent on a local, national and international level.

Summertown itself is a buzzing, fashionable area with a large M & S Simply Food store, together with numerous independent shops covering a the whole range of requirements from coffee shops, bars and restaurants to independent smart fashion boutiques and beauty parlours.

Due to the geographic layout of Oxford, the elegant period conversions and grand freehold town houses of the immediate area are extremely popular with families, most of whom are either upsizing locally or moving to Oxford from London to take advantage of the excellent schools, both private and state run. Property values and desirability of rental properties hinge in the main on the proximity to, and catchment area of, the most popular establishments.

Transport wise, Oxford has many options of travel such as Oxford Central station that goes to London Paddington in 56 minutes and Oxford Parkway station that arrives in London Marylebone in 58 minutes. Within the city itself, Oxford offers an amazing bus service that networks in and around the entire area, keeping in line with the Oxford City Councils 'Green Spaces Strategy'. By car, Oxford also has brilliant access to the M40.

Development and investment opportunities are also keenly sought and rarely remain on the market for long. Newly renovated properties appeal to both the international and domestic markets, and property recently finished to a high specification commands a premium price, particularly if it comes with additional amenities and concierge-style services.

Further afield, Oxfordshire and its surrounding area remain one of the most robust property markets in the UK, driven primarily by the city’s international recognition and the county’s proximity to London, excellent transport links and the excellent schools and universities.
