Ravenwood offers a rare opportunity to own one large, contiguous recreational and timber producing property only 20 miles from downtown Charleston. This is a very short commute for a weekend retreat or permanent residence. The property offers a diverse landscape from upland pine plantations to bottomland hardwoods along Horse Savanna, which is the head waters of Rantowles Creek. The upland portion includes 223 acres of merchantable planted loblolly pine and eight acres of mature natural pine/hardwood mix along a small scenic creek bottom. The bottomland portion consist of 229 acres that was harvested in 2015, much of this acreage could be replanted to maximize production or managed in its natural state for wildlife. The upland plantations are well drained and ideal for pursuit of upland game including bob white quail, turkey and a plentiful whitetail deer population.
The topography and forest cover changes drastically as the property slopes towards Horse Savanna. This area, with its heavy soils, may lend itself to being an ideal location for multiple waterfowl impoundments or permanent ponds. The bottomland has been managed for timber production and has an effective, established drainage system. An internal road system allows for year-round, all weather access throughout the property. Ravenwood is productive, beautiful and has many historic features. It is also quiet, secure and yet easily accessible - a great property.
