Fairfield County, SC
The Barber Road Tract is a beautifully composed timberland property with a truly unique blend of natural and planted forest types. Half of the 150-acre property is adorned with pristine natural pines that have been maintained as peaceful habitat for wildlife and its stewards. As with the development of any estate, time is the most difficult attribute to capture. However, the mature timber on the Barber Rd. Tract offers a perfect setting that can be carefully shaped into your ideal old forest. The timber is only one thinning away from becoming a classic piedmont quail haven and the gentle roll of the land is gentle enough to welcome seasoned hunters on a walking course. Thirty-nine acres of younger pine plantations are ready to be thinned and complement over 16 acres of beautiful natural hardwoods. Nicely situated in the center of the mature pines is a stocked 2 ½ acre pond. An 850 square foot concrete building with power provides a safe and secure place to store tractors and equipment.
The Barber Road Tract is an efficient timberland investment property with almost 85% of the property available for continued timber production. The mature pine is ready for final harvest and could be sold in a single transaction or strategically in smaller blocks to introduce more age class diversity in the subsequent plantations. The younger plantations are available to thin now and can be managed to meet future income needs. The close proximity to Interstate 77 and a growing Northeast Columbia region puts the Barber Rd. Tract in ideal position to keep the attention of increasing demands for recreational land.
The Barber Road Tract is just under 2 miles from the SC Highway 34 and Interstate 77 interchange. Ridgeway is a 4-mile drive and downtown Columbia is only 30 minutes away, while Charlotte is just over an hour’s ride.
