Oxford offers a glimpse of the old south in historic neighborhoods. People in retirement can make a financial investment in an historic home here, or they can buy in one of the many newer developments that cater to active adults, such as Grand Oaks, Wellsgate, and St. Charles Place (see link at right). There are a number of condominium projects; some of the nicest ones are near the Square. Provence Park is one condo project, Turnberry Condominiums is another. Contact your realtor to find out more.
