Located along the northern border of a remote stretch of the Saluda River in Newberry County, this property sits between Lake Greenwood and Lake Murray in the Piedmont Region of South Carolina. This river retreat consists of approximately 163 acres of first-thinned merchantable loblolly pines and 40 acres of eighty-year-old hardwoods. The majority of the hardwoods rest along a creek bottom that stretches roughly one mile and drains into the Saluda - a major wildlife corridor with several white oak groves. A main road runs the length of the property providing excellent access to the entire tract. At the end of this road is a small, secluded house sitting on a hardwood ridge that gently rolls down to the Saluda - the perfect setting to take in the golden colors of an autumn river sunset while relaxing in a rocking chair on the wrap-around porch.
In addition to several established food plots (currently clover & chicory) located throughout the property, there is a small dove field with a power-line running through the middle of it. The property also offers great topography leading down to the river. Two large sloughs separate the river from the hardwood ridges, providing favorable roosting locations for wild turkeys. Imagine hearing more gobbles than you can count while having a cup of coffee on a cool spring morning from that same porch rocker. As for big bucks on the property, just look at the picture of the early season double from the 2011 season.
This 209 acre riverfront tract is truly unique and it is being offered for a limited time only. The owners have therefore priced the property at a very reasonable price right out of the gate, creating a rare opportunity to purchase a tract of this quality at market value. In addition to the timber value, excellent hunting opportunities, and close proximity to both Lake Greenwood and Lake Murray, the property’s southern border extends for 3,000 feet along the bank of the Saluda River making it ideal for a conservation easement. If you have been searching for the perfect riverfront parcel look no further - this is the property of your dreams!
