Why Mary Margaret Andrews chose Oxford

We looked for a house to purchase for a year and this one was under construction when we found it. Mary Margaret walked in, took one look at the deck and said 'this is it'! The house was built in 1953 by a professor at Ole Miss and his wife who was an artist. It has an amazing floor plan perfect for entertaining which we love to do. It was perfect and we love to share it with visitors to Oxford.

What makes this house unique

We have an awesome patio overlooking our beautiful park like wooded yard. It is peaceful and perfect for morning coffee, afternoon glass of wine or outside dining.

Excellent location and home was very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home was excellent! We were in Oxford for an Ole Miss football game and we were three families. House is very spacious and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Very clean, comfy beds and a beautiful deck.

Comfortable, relaxing and better than home

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything they said. It is a spacious, comfortable home with everything you need. It was easy to get everywhere. The owners were charming and provided all the information we needed. But the best part is the back patio. We were lucky and the weather was great, so we spent most of our time out there. The chairs were comfortable and the trees were beautiful so you didn't want to leave. We catered in dinner twice and it couldn't have been more pleasant. I was actually sad we had so much to do that we couldn't spend more time at the house. We already have friends who want to rent it for their son's graduation in a few years. And yes, we would rent it again.

Beautiful home perfect for Ole Miss visitors.

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and clean. The layout is perfect for multiple family's in town for Ole Miss events. The location is close enough to walk to campus. The homeowner really made us feel welcome. Not only would I recommend this property to others, but we are planning on contacting them to rent in the future.

Wonderful, charming home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here could not have been better. The house is lovely, the location extremely convenient and the owners were gracious and welcoming hosts. They were dealing with a family emergency on the day we arrived, yet still took time to make sure we had everything we needed, give us restaurant recommendations and so on! We rented two rooms, which shared a Jack and Jill bathroom, and the accommodations worked perfectly for our needs. A nice breakfast spread was set out in the kitchen in the morning, and we truly were made to feel at home during our short stay. We hope very much to return in the future!
