Whilst immediate gross yields tend to be higher outside Oxford, the capital gains, arguably many clients' first reason for investing, have been stronger on the edge and inside the Oxford ring road, making Yew Tree Courtyard a very attractive investment proposition indeed. This development offers direct links to the ever-expanding Oxford Science Park, Culham Science Centre, Science Vale UK, the nearby M40 and A34, and the pending Oxford Parkway to Marylebone rail-link.

Ultimately, the success of an investment is about the combination of rental yield and capital gain on the property, and with the Oxfordshire annual house price increases generally being above the national average, due to the positive local economy and shortage of suitable buy-to-let property, there is definitely a strong demand for rental properties from both investors and tenants alike.

As previously mentioned, of particular importance, is Chiltern Railways first direct service between Oxford city centre and London Marylebone, which is due to start in December 2016. The final phase of the pioneering rail project, being delivered in partnership with Network Rail, will see trains running from Oxford city centre to London Marylebone from Monday 12 December.

This launch will follow the completion of the final section of track between Oxford Parkway and Oxford station and means that the first new rail link between a major British city and London in over 100 years will be fully open. The first official passenger trains are expected to depart from Oxford station on Monday 12th December 2016.

Yew Tree Courtyard also enjoys close proximity to the ever-expanding Oxford Science Park, of which Magdalen College has recently taken full ownership, with a view to expanding the site in the next ten years.

The College plan is to increase the office space at the Oxford Science Park by 40 per cent by 2025. It also fully supports the "to be launched" extension of the Oxford to London Marylebone rail line on the Cowley branch line.

A mixture of computer hardware, bioscience, telecommunications and environmental science companies currently make up the site, including Amey, IBM, Oxford Nanopore, Sharp Laboratories and TripAdvisor.

Of equal importance nearby, is Science Vale UK Business Park, which incorporates Harwell Campus, Culham Science Centre, and Milton Park in South Oxfordshire. The Science Vale Area Action Plan intends to regenerate "large brownfield sites, such as the former power station site at Didcot A to provide an opportunity to help improve the surrounding areas and to provide local businesses, the means to expand their premises and workforce, with plans to include 20,000 new jobs by 2031.

The planning policy document was jointly prepared by South Oxfordshire District Council and Vale of White Horse District Council, whilst aiming to protect the "distinctive character and heritage of Science Vale's market towns, villages and countryside". This shows Yew Tree Courtyard to be a unique development in which to invest.

Science Vale is home to major scientific projects such as the national synchrotron Diamond Light Source, with the goal, being to fill many of the jobs required in the research and de-velopment sectors, including space, life sciences, advanced engineering and cryogenics, via local recruitment.

"Yew Tree Courtyard is perfectly located to provide a high-quality housing solution to Science Vale UK and other professionals"

SITUATION The parish of Nuneham Courtenay lies along the left bank of the River Thames about five miles south of Oxford and covers over two thousand acres of enclosed parkland. It curves round the river as it flows south from Sandford Lock and then west to Nuneham Lock and Abingdon.

On the south it is bounded by the parishes of Culham and Clifton Hampden, on the east by the Baldons. The village includes All Saints' Church and Nuneham Park Global Retreat Centre. Oxford University's Harcourt Arboretum is open to the public and nearby is Notcutts Garden Centre.

Local facilities include the florist, Emma Walker and the Cockadoo bar and restaurant in Nuneham Courtenay. Other local public houses include the Seven Stars in Marsh Baldon, The Mole in Toot Baldon and The Fish in Sutton Courtenay.

There are regular bus services to Oxford and Wallingford and the A34 provides main arterial connections to Newbury and Banbury. The nearest rail services are from Culham and Radley, which go into Oxford and onto Reading and London Paddington
