Latin for "Hickory Hill," Carya Collis embodies the essence of rural living. It's more than just a property; it's a serene country escape; a cherished legacy; a place for generations to call home. Carya Collis offers a lifestyle of self-reliance and tranquility. From the abundant wildlife to the fenced pastures, stocked pond, and thriving gardens complete with raised vegetable beds, fruit trees, nut groves, berry patches, and herb & tea gardens - every element is thoughtfully designed to support a life lived close to nature. Yet, its allure extends beyond the practical with stone pathways and grassy paths that wind through lush and colorful flower beds, leading to hidden treasures like secluded benches, garden retreats, a stone fire pit, or a rocky stream. Carya Collis isn't just a property; it's a sanctuary - a place to savor the rewards of labor and, in the evening, unwind with a glass of iced tea on the porch, watching the setting sun paint the sky over your fields.

Updated, restored, and expanded 1850 Civil War era farmhouse combines the best of country charm and modern convenience.
