This versatile tract, southwest of Laurens, SC, has a great combination of location and features. Hunting, recreation, timber and rural residential are all viable potential uses of the property.
The property is completely wooded with merchantable timber, a mixture of hardwoods and pines. The upland areas consist of some loblolly pine stands and beautiful open hardwood ridges. The hardwood areas have mature red and white oaks that produce great hard mast for attracting wildlife, as well as poplar, hickory and other species.
Water features are essential to attracting and holding wildlife, and this property boasts two creeks that fit the bill. One is a small branch that originates in a spring head in the middle of the tract. The other is a larger creek that is a tributary of the Reedy River. It forms the northwestern boundary of the property and has multiple rock formations and small waterfalls.
The tract has been a good hunting property for the current owner, with opportunities for deer, wild turkey and small game. The hunting could be improved even further by harvesting some small pockets of timber to provide more bedding cover and establish wildlife food plots.
There is a small hunting cabin on the property that the owner stayed in when he hunted the property. There is also an open pole shed that was used for equipment storage. All improvements are being sold “As Is” and have been assigned no value by the owner.
Power, water and phone are available on Neely Ferry Road in this location, and a septic tank would be required for wastewater.
The tract is located on Neely Ferry Road, just north of the Ekom Beach Road intersection. The town of Laurens is just 15 minutes away, and you can drive from Downtown Greenville and be in your deer stand in just over 30 minutes. Nearby Lake Greenwood offers fishing and watersports opportunities, with a public boat ramp less than 15 minutes from the property.
