Abbeville County, SC
The 1,000 Oaks Tract is an incomparable investment-grade property in northern Abbeville and eastern Anderson Counties. Few properties can match the timber investment potential, conservation opportunities and recreational possibilities afforded by this 1,000-acre natural masterpiece, and even fewer can do so within a 30-minute drive of Greenville, SC, the fourth fastest growing city in the United States.
The obvious pearl of the 1,000 Oaks Tract is the 4,500 feet of frontage on the Saluda River. The vistas along the river include rapids cascading over shoals and calm pools along the shore. Beautiful natural hardwoods adorn the scenic river bottom, and multiple sites offer spectacular views of the river from higher elevations. A conservationist’s dream and a nemophilist’s treasure, the 1,000 Oaks Tracts includes 300 acres of natural hardwoods and over a mile of frontage along Little and Broad Mouth Creeks. Over 8 miles of trails provide driving, walking or UTV access through a variety of forest types. Wildlife is plentiful and largely undisturbed, making chance encounters plentiful and enjoyably unpredictable.
While the river frontage is ideally situated for development into a premier personal retreat, the entire property is a fully functioning and well-managed timberland investment. Seven hundred acres of merchantable pine plantations provide long-term stability and predictable performance, an ideal complement to other investment strategies. With over 600 acres ready for a first commercial thinning now, the property is positioned to offer its new owner comfort in liquidity and the opportunity to develop a harvest program that is unique to their objectives. Almost two miles of paved road frontage and favorable topography provide excellent management access, and quick access to Highways 76, 25, 252 and 178 move forest products to market quickly. The 1,000 Oaks Tract is a uniquely large tract for the area and its proximity to Greenville make it an ideal candidate for a conservation easement. In addition to the financial opportunities created by a conservation easement, you’ll be able to preserve your idea of stewardship on the property forever while still managing the timber for greatest returns.
The 1,000 Oaks Tract lies midway between Greenville and Greenwood, just 3 miles west of Highway 25 on the south side of Highway 76. Honea Path is only a 5 minute drive down Highway 76.
