Details & Features
Situated in the heart of the South Carolina sporting plantation and timberlands region, in Hampton County, South Carolina, Harper’s Pond is an exceptional southern property for sale. Neighboring some of the most well-known plantations in the state, Harper’s Pond offers superb recreational opportunities combined with an established timber operation. The property’s neighbors include some of the most well known large plantations in the state, admired for their quality habitat management and land stewardship.
With 170 +/- acres of merchantable timber, the property provides ongoing timber revenues combined with turnkey recreational opportunities for deer, duck, dove, turkey, and wild hogs. The timberland is made up of a combination of upland pine forests with some hardwood drainages that meander through the tract. The soils here are excellent for forestry and wildlife management. The property also includes a 93-acre field excellent for crop production that has also been a famously successful dove field. Also on this property is a 26-acre pond, established food plots for deer and turkey, an extensive road system, paved road frontage and much of the property is well stocked with mature pine timber.
The creek and spring-fed 26-acre pond makes Harper’s Pond highly unusual in this area. With its three-tiered overflow system, it can be divided providing the opportunity for a plant and flood duck pond to attract waterfowl. It currently is habitat for a large population of resident ducks and migratory Ringneck ducks. It’s also a proven stocked resource for freshwater fishing for largemouth bass and bream.
Overlooking the pond is a spectacular 4,365 square foot home with 5 bedrooms, spacious living areas and a gourmet chef’s kitchen with top of the line appliances. Custom built in 2009, much of the house is paneled and trimmed with the rich patina of local heart pine. Attached to the house is a just under 1000 square foot screened pavilion with a large brick fireplace providing enjoyment of the outdoors year-round. The surrounding grounds were meticulously designed by a master naturalist to attract native migrating songbirds and wildlife.
In a prestigious area where lands seldom become available, Harper’s Pond is a rare and exceptional offering.
