An awesome recreational/minifarm parcel next to Lake Thurmond! Potential uses are timberland, recreation and residential.
The Fort Charlotte Tract is a private, wooded tract located in the Mount Carmel community in McCormick County. It has approximately 15 acres of 20 year merchantable pine, with the remainder in hardwoods. The pines could be thinned for immediate income and to further open access for hunting. There is a beautiful open hardwood bottom at the back of the property surrounding a wet weather creek drainage.
This acreage is ideal for a secluded recreational getaway! There is good hunting for deer and wild turkey, which could be enhanced with additional clearing and wildlife management improvements. In addition, it offers the unusual benefit of being directly adjacent to thousands of acres of Army Corps of Engineers property that offers public access for hunting as a SCDNR Wildlife Management Area! The SCDNR-managed Russell Creek Waterfowl impoundments are 5 minutes north of this property and allow duck hunting on Wednesday and Saturday mornings during the season.
Lake Strom Thurmond (aka Clarks Hill Lake) is one of the largest man-made lakes east of the Mississippi River at over 71,000 acres, and offers world class striper fishing as well as largemouth bass, crappie, catfish and bream. There is a public boat ramp literally across the street from this landing, 1 minute away, offering boat access for fishing, watersports, or just a sunset cruise!
The tract has 516 feet of frontage on recently paved Fort Charlotte Road. There is an excellent all-weather road on the property offering access all the way back to the hardwoods in the back. Power, public water and phone/internet are available on Fort Charlotte Road, and the property was permitted in 2014 for a septic system. There are multiple sites that would be suitable for construction of a residence, cabin or an RV campsite.
Grocery and medical facilities are available in the nearby towns of McCormick or Abbeville, SC, and the metro areas of Augusta, GA and Greenville, SC are 1.5 hours away.
Showings are by appointment only, so please contact the listing agent before walking the property. Please note that there is a small amount of Flood Zone (less than an acre) in the hardwood bottom.
