Edgefield County, SC
Are you looking for a place where you can leave it all behind? The Rauton Tract offers recreation, privacy, and peace. This property offers 249 acres of diversity and opportunities. Numerous roads and timber stands of various ages provide a mixture of settings and hunting environments. Age classes of stands range from 4, 5, 9 to 15 years of planted and natural pine, and over 25 acres of hardwood drains and bottoms. You will be pleasantly surprised by the height and growth of these timber stands despite their ages. Fertile soils, genetically improved seedlings, and proper site prep techniques have these trees growing quickly. The 100-acre, 15-year-old planted pine stand has been thinned once, with a second thinning opportunity in 5 to 7 years. Expect the first thinning of additional pine stands around age 15. The diversity and productive timber stands will allow the new owner to manage timber production, wildlife, and future income streams efficiently and beneficially to their own management objectives.
Wildlife species are abundant on the Rauton Tract because of the timber stands’ age class diversity. Foraging and cover types are throughout the property not to mention large hardwood and pine stands adjacent to the property on the Forest Service Lands. There are excellent locations for food plots that will enhance hunting opportunities. Trails and roads are already in place, with a little cleanup and upgrades, you will have access across the property. This road network will be perfect to enjoy on ATVs.
The property is positioned near the McCormick and Edgefield County line off L R White road. The drive is 70 miles from Columbia and 40 miles from Aiken; the Rauton Tract is worth the drive. Surrounded by US Forest Service lands and large property ownerships the 249 acres feels much larger. Power is located off the county road, making this the perfect place to build a hunting lodge or permanent estate. Your family will be able to enjoy the outdoors for many years to come.
