 I know Oxfordshire well, many a night in the late 90's cowley road currry king rubbing shoulders with radiohead and supergrass, and numerous talentless posers. I even worked for the oxford mail advertising sales briefly, thick as shite total psycopaths, hated it. (no reference required thanks)

   In reality a local town for local people only, except most locals can't even afford to buy a flat there.  Even back in the day most home ownerhip among my peers who got hooked up with a girlfriend early was those little flats and 2 bed starters in Carterton.  

 Witney, Eynsham, Minster lovell, Wychwoods rural areas all quite nice if you have the dollar. Good luck.

Hmm, my feeling too. Makes me wonder why it's priced similarly to areas with less 'cachet'. Am I missing something?

Not really - traditionally Botley has not had any cachet, it's not fashionable like east or north Oxford.  Good area though, relatively safe and still decent-ish prices for a 1930's semi.  The only issue is the botley road, in that traffic is bad, but you can easily cycle down it in 10 mins if you're working in town.

How about Yarnton? About to go and have a look. We were keen on Kidlington, but maybe Yarnton offers a bit more for the money?

Wait until the land registry data comes out, no way that went for anywhere near asking I bet, if the sale actually goes through.

Sold at the start of January for £395k according to the data
