Richland County, SC
The Broad River Hills Tract is an incomparable investment-grade property in northern Richland County. Few properties can match the timber investment potential, conservation opportunities, and recreational possibilities afforded by this 192-acre natural masterpiece, and even fewer can do so within a 30-minute drive of downtown Columbia, SC.
The prominent pearl of the Broad River Hills Tract is the 1,700 feet of frontage on the Broad 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 Broad River Hills Tract includes mature stands of upland hardwoods and managed pines. Wildlife is plentiful and largely undisturbed, making chance encounters abundant 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. Over 100 acres of merchantable pine plantations provide long-term stability and predictable performance, an ideal complement to other investment strategies. Nearly 80 acres of pure hardwoods or pine-hardwood mixes provide potential harvest opportunities and offers diverse and creative landscaping spaces.
The Broad River Hills Tract lies just 6 miles from Chapin on Joe Meetze Road and is uniquely situated halfway between Lake Murray and Lake Monticello. The property lies within Lexington-Richland School District 5 and is zoned for Chapin Schools. Spring Hill Magnet High School is less than 5 miles away. Interstate 26 at Chapin Road is a quick 4.5-mile drive.
