Tract - 519.1 acres (can be subdivided ) in Oconee County just
west of Walhalla on Coffee Road. 5 miles of road frontage. Public Water.
Valuable standing timber.
This property has tremendous potential for residential development with over five
miles of public road frontage and public water mains in place along much of the
frontage. Paved roads account for about 18,000 feet of frontage. Two gravel
roads go through the land. Rolling topography offers a high number of potential
building sites and several possible pond sites.
With lots of natural assets there is great potential for a conservation, recreation
or equestrian based community. Park-like stands of trees and flowing creeks
offer an ideal setting for horse, bike or foot trails. A view of the Blue Ridge
Mountains peeks through the towering trees. Within an easy drive are the
Sumter National Forest, Issaqueenah Falls, Chattooga Wild and Scenic River,
Lake Keowee, three state parks and three county parks.

Interstate 85 runs through the southern part of the county. Population is now
about 70,000. It has grown by about 9,000 in the last 10 years and the same

in the area. Major investments have been made recently by large companies
such as Duke Energy, Johnson Control and Borg Warner Automotive. Clemson
