This property is 99 acres of prime timber and pristine hunting land in Allendale County, South Carolina. It has not been farmed for more than 100 years (if ever at all), and has not had timber harvested for at least 30 years. This land is just outside of Sycamore, SC near South Carolina's famous Low Country -- a region of tremendous natural beauty and year-around outdoor potential.
The property has a gated legal entrance and good road that runs down its outer edge, with a branch from that road that allows access to the middle of the property.
Five excellent hunting blinds and tree stands are on the property, ready for use (see the pictures) and "tweaked" for predominate wind direction. The blinds are strategically located by crossings and natural funnels. An experienced professional land assessor commented, "I have been in this business a long time and this has to be one of the best tracts of timber and hunting land I have seen. Walking this tract I saw deer every few hundred yards and two groups of turkeys." A serious trophy-deer hunter recently said, "I have hunted white-tailed deer for 50+ years. Your land is the best place I have ever leased. I shoot only mature bucks, and your property has abundant trophy deer -- 8 points and better." If desired, seasonal rental per hunter easily commands $3,000 per hunter.
The timber is predominately hardwoods with many mature oaks. The hardwoods include many white oaks. This tract is mostly high ground with good roads, with riding and hiking trails (see pictures). Farm fields and pine plantations surround the property.
As a bonus, the property is only 10 minutes from the extensive outdoors/hunting/fishing facilities and amenities of Broxton Bridge Plantation (which has a private airstrip and a variety of activities of interest to hunters and their families, such as the Southern Winds Equestrian Camp). And of course the fine dining, culture and shopping of Charleston are 90 minutes away.
Truly this is an outstanding investment and recreational property, either for an individual sportsman or for a hunting club.
