Hike on our 100 acres of trails, ECO-FRIENDLY: Solar panels (30), Geo-thermal Heat & Air and more, So close to Oxford but feels like a far away retreat. There's soooo much to do in Oxford, The Empty Nest is a great place to DO NOTHING!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Linda Lewis Raney wears many hats. She is a Real Estate Agent, caretaker of 10 horses, 4 dogs & 4 cats, CHA certified teacher of Beginners Horseback riding, antique booth entrepreneur, Guest House Manager & Reservation Clerk,. Hollaman (Holly) M. Raney is a practicing Attorney by day and a wanna-be Farmer/Maintenance Man by night. He is plenty old enough to retire but as the father of five daughters (the last one just left for college), we don't hold out much hope for that.

Why the Owner Chose Oxford:
We visited friends on Hopewell Road 16 years ago. We loved it out here so much, we bought our property and moved here within four months. Holly commuted back to Jackson, Miss for 9 months before he secured employment in Memphis. This picturesque, quintessential country lane started our love affair with living in 'The Country'. Our forests, trails, wildlife, horses, beautiful home and proximity to Oxford make life complete.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We enjoy all the advantages of the magnificent hamlet of Oxford yet are able to retreat from the hustle and bustle of 'The Little Easy' at our country home.
