“I love the potential of Mason Branch and the closeness to Aiken. From the entrance of Mason Branch you can be at the Wilcox Restaurant, Hopeland Gardens, and the Steeplechase all within 10 easy miles. It is in a prime location for development in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) and its close proximity to Interstate 20 and the cities of Aiken, Augusta and Columbia make it an ideal track and a smart investment. Not to mention it has great habitat for whitetails and turkeys.”
“This property is exactly what many of our more sophisticated investors are looking for. Its essentially a high quality timber property in an affluent and growing location with great HBU potential. There is a lake seemingly in the middle of the property that one day could yield great lake view lots or smaller property. It has great roll, great road system and very diverse. The property is value priced.”
“Location. Location. Location. For just slightly more than what one can buy in pure industrial timberland this future HBU property offers additional appreciation opportunities.”
