The property is a classic Red Hills recreational property with a high volume of merchantable pine plantation located 12 miles north of Greenville and surrounded by historic plantation properties. Bryant Peace co-listed the property with Walter Hatchett of Kohler & Associates.

“We listed and sold roughly 1,000 acres of the seller’s property a couple of years ago, and she felt confident in my ability to help her find a buyer for her remaining acreage,” Peace said. “With the help of my broker network in the area, we were able to procure a buyer and close the deal successfully.”

There were some challenges to the project because a conservation easement encumbers a significant percentage of the property. However, the high demand for recreational property with quality upland timber value continues to create a substantial market for these types of properties, even during and potentially because of the current pandemic. The new owners plan to build a lodge to be enjoyed by the family as they hunt and manage the pine plantations.
