.. LOCATION: Abbeville County, South Carolina on the upper end of Lake Russell ½ mile below Lake Secession. See enclosed map.
2. DESCRIPTION: 20 acres of pine hardwood forest bordering Lake Russell on two sides. Land has 100 ft. frontage on Maynard Road.
Lake Russell is 26,650 acres of open water created by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers who own and maintain a border of land around all of the shoreline of the lake ensuring a natural pristine setting. The Corp retains a 300 foot collar around the lake which they manage intensively for wild life, recreation and shoreline protection with no development allowed in this area except for parks and public boat landings. No private docks or ramps are allowed anywhere on the lake. This property however has a rare set back of only approximately 140’ from the property line to the high water mark along almost 586 feet of property line. Another 750 ft of property line has the standard 300’ or more set back. The lake levels are not allowed to drop below 5’ below full pool as opposed to other nearby large Corp lakes that can be dropped as much as 18’ to 35’
This beautiful property is gently rolling with an abundance of house sites with a seclusion that matches its beauty. Wild life is abundant with deer, turkeys, rabbits, foxes and an occasional bobcat. Hawks, ospreys, ducks and geese are commonly seen around the lake with occasional sightings of bald eagles. Lake Russell is one of the best fishing lakes around with bass, bream, crappie, catfish, stripers, some trout and other species.
The closest boat landing is less than 1 mile by water from the property and approximately 2 miles by road. Boats can be tied up to the shore line during the day but cannot be left unattended over night. A small boat could be slid or carried from the property down to the water.
This property offers beautiful seclusion yet is only 20 miles from the city of Anderson with excellent shopping, dining etc. and about the same distance to historical Abbeville with its unique old opera house still in use today.
