The Looper Farm is a beautiful family farm in the Dacusville section of Pickens County that is now on the market for the first time in over 100 years. The property features extensive road frontage on SC Hwy 183 (Farrs Bridge Road) and N Old Mill Road, open pasture, timberlands, internal roads and trails, and significant frontage on Machine Creek.
This tract would be ideal for a buyer looking for a conveniently located large estate farm, with 10 acres of open pasture, and utilities already in place at the old home place. You could choose to renovate the Civil War era farmhouse or build the custom home you've always dreamed of. Timber could be harvested for immediate income and replanted, or cleared to create more pastures for horses, cattle or other livestock. Greenbriar Farms adjoins this farm to the north, and offers sustainable organic produce, grassfed beef and pastured pork in their farm store.
With the growth occurring in the Upstate region, and the farm's location on a major corridor (SC Highway 183; Average Daily Traffic Count of 8,300 in 2017 and steadily increasing), this would also be an excellent option for an investor or developer. The majority of the tract has good level topography, and the extensive amount of paved frontage (4,637 feet on Hwy 183, and 1,201 feet on N. Old Mill Road) maximizes development potential, access, and subdivide options in the future. A funding request to widen SC Hwy 183 to 4 lanes has been submitted to the SC Infrastructure Bank. Power is available, and there is a 12” water line along Highway 183.
The majority of the tract is in woodlands, with areas of large hardwoods as well as 23 acres of merchantable pine planted in 1993 that has been thinned. There are several water features on the property, including a small pond, several springs and creeks, as well as over half a mile of frontage on Machine Creek.
Wildlife is abundant, with whitetail deer and wild turkeys on the property as well as small game and even the occasional black bear. Machine Creek, as well as the pond, springs and streams, provide perfect water sources to hold wildlife. There is a Duke Power right-of-way crossing the property that provides additional hunting access, and the farm could be further improved for wildlife with additional clearing for food plots or fruit tree orchards.
The Looper Farm is ideally located, less than 10 minutes from Easley or Pickens, SC, and just a 20 minute commute to Downtown Greenville, SC. Clemson University, Lake Keowee, Table Rock State Park and the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area are all within 30 minutes.
Showings are strictly by appointment only. All improvements are to be sold “As Is”. Sellers will consider serious subdivide offers using the roads as a dividing point at an appropriate price point with restrictions to protect the marketability and integrity of the remaining acreage.
