Househunters scouring for homes in Oxford may find it a squeeze to move into their dream home before Christmas if they are intent on buying, but might have more luck renting.

Carter Jonas currently has three attractive family homes available to let in Walton Manor and Jericho, one of Oxford’s most fashionable districts where quiet residential streets lay in easy reach of dozens of vibrant, independent shops and restaurants.

All three of these mid-size homes are available to move in immediately so families moving to Oxford can enjoy a base in the city with all the trimmings while looking for somewhere to buy and preparing themselves for the festive season.

Twenty-five Kingston Road is an attractive, furnished four storey Victorian terraced house with three bedrooms.

Available for £1,750 per month, this home has a ground floor reception room with steps leading down to a kitchen/dining room and separate sitting room, while the first floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom and shower room. The second floor attic houses another double bedroom. There is also an enclosed rear garden.

Forty-three Plantation Road is a well presented, unfurnished three bedroom house with a drawing room, joint sitting/dining room, kitchen, garden and family bathroom.

On the market for £1,750 a month, this home is slightly closer to Woodstock Road and Oxford’s top independent schools in North Oxford such as The Dragon School, St. Edward’s and Oxford High School for Girls.

In the heart of Jericho is 68 Observatory Street, a furnished two bedroom mid terrace with a kitchen. Sitting room, dining room and breakfast room with a garden and garage to the rear of the property.

Available for £1,500 this home is just a few yards walk from some of Jericho’s top restaurants including Raymond Blanc’s Brasserie Blanc, the independent Italian Branca and an outlet of renowned seafood chain Loch Fyne.

Christopher Way of Carter Jonas said: “These homes will make fantastic long-term lets for families looking for a convenient base in the city or 'stepping stone' properties for people moving here who want to familiarise themselves with Oxford before committing to buy.

“As the clock ticks on to Christmas, these lets offer a great opportunity for families to move in hassle free and to have their tree put up in time for the festive season.
