City Guide
Moving to Oxford

If you're beginning to feel the stress of moving to another city or apartment, stop that thought. Sure, relocating can be daunting, but it can be exciting as well. We strongly encourage you to focus on the latter. Here are some facts to whet your excitement further.

What's in the Mix?

Oxford is a city of renters with more than half of the city's population living in rental properties. So there's definitely a tribe for you in Oxford. You just have to choose where you belong: rental apartment, townhomes or typical family homes. Hey, you can even opt for a mobile house if that's your thing. In addition, cribs come in varying sizes and ages in Oxford, so whether you're into the ageless charm of a Victorian home or you like the feel and look of newly developed homes, and whether you're going for a cozy studio for rent in Oxford or a house fit for king, there's bound to be something that suits your preferences perfectly.

What Should You Bring?

Yes, there are lots of rental homes in this part of North Carolina, but to stake your claim to one of those, you need to have your rental history, picture ID and proof of income ready. Most professionally managed apartments will require you to go through a credit check at your own expense as well.

And Now, the Best News!

If you're sick and tired of shelling out more money than you think an apartment is worth, you can take a breather from that here. Rent in Oxford is lower than Durham or Raleigh. Now can you guess why many people think this city makes a good bedroom community?

Oxford Neighborhoods

Different areas in Oxford have their own style and personality. Check out which neighborhood would be the best fit to your lifestyle:

Downtown: The area where commerce, entertainment and dining delights converge, the Downtown area is rife with the spirit of the past as well. College Street and Main Street is where you'll find well-maintained historic structures of Victorian, Greek Revivalist and Italianate architecture. Aside from those, you'll find apartments and townhouses for rent as well. This is home to Richard H Thornton Library, Thorndale Country Club, businesses, shops and diners.

Lewis Street / Industry Drive: Located adjacent to Downtown area along I-85, this community is a neighborhood of apartment complexes, small apartment buildings and family houses. Although some parts of this neighborhood are walkable, you're pretty much dependent on your car most of the time.

Huntsboro / Horner: Situated on the northern outskirts of the city, these rural areas are for those who'd like to live the farm life. You'll have livestock as neighbors. If you're like most residents in this area, your car is your bridge to civilization and you're most likely living in a mobile home or farmhouse. This is also home to Oxford Park.

Dickerson / Clay: Located along I-85, south of Downtown Oxford, this rural neighborhood is a community of farms and mobile homes. Gas money will probably take the bigger chunk of your budget since this is not a very walkable area. You'll find a few shops and service businesses here, too.

Living in Oxford

History is one of the major attractions in Oxford. After all, who wouldn't be drawn to the diverse architecture of prominent structures making Oxford one big historical exhibit. If you're really interested in stuff from yesteryear, go on a walking tour on Main Street, for starters. You'll be able to see 200 years of history just by looking at buildings like the Herndon-White-Sharpe House, Granville County Courthouse, Outlaw Hunt House and Cannady Family House, just to name a few.

If history isn't your cup of tea, you can head over to Oxford's numerous parks and immerse yourself in the here and now. With the city's diverse athletic programs and events, there's bound to be something that will catch your fancy. The Granville Athletic Park, for one, has a paved trail for bikers and hikers, ball fields, playgrounds and restroom facilities. If you're someone who lives for the next grand adventure, make the short drive to John H. Kerr Reservoir, get on a boat and explore its coves, go on a fishing trip and just have plain good time away from the hustle and bustle of your day job.

So what are you waiting for? Get yourself a home here and have a blast living the life!
