Double Branch Tract
Double Branch Tract is a move-in-ready recreation tract in the quiet rolling hills near Blackstock, SC. The property lies on the west side of Aiken Creek Road about 10 miles south of Chester. An excellent internal road extends for about 5,000 feet into the property giving access across the land.
Improvements include a stocked pond of about 3 acres overlooked by a like-new camper and a large pavilion. The camper was purchased new in 2018 and never traveled but brought directly to set up in its present location. It is tucked under a pole structure with metal roof for shade and protection from the elements. A 14KW Generac generator (purchased in 2021) is served by a large propane tank and runs power on demand. Well and septic are on site and in great condition. There are power and water hookups for visiting RV’s and a clean, new outhouse with odor control chamber for when your boots are too muddy to go indoors. The seller plans to leave several items for the new owner’s enjoyment such as picnic tables in the pavilion, recliners in the camper and boats and fishing rods at the pond.
Timber on most of the tract has been harvested and replanted. About 245 acres of planted pines are a year old. These little trees are free from competition and growing well. Around 50 to 60 acres of older timber remain. Much of this is near creeks and on slopes. Screens and blocks of trees were retained along the main road and around the pond. Mature hardwood stands near waterways. On the uplands, remaining pines are about 30 years old.
Two perennial streams flow across the land heading north. There are 16 food plots which total about 22 acres of open ground. The largest is just over 4 acres and allows over a quarter mile of open view across flat bottomland. In all, about 9 acres of food plots are in bottoms and 7 acres are on high ground. There is also a dove field of about 3.75 acres with a fake powerline and around 2.5 acres of open area around the camper. The land is home to deer, turkey, and quail.
A survey completed in 2005 describes the tract as 366.79 acres. The property has more than 3,000 feet of paved frontage on Aiken Creek Road. There are two gated entrances where land is gently sloping and should make easy sites for building. No electric lines enter the land, but electric service could be extended from nearby on Aiken Creek Road where it is a few hundred feet from the property corner. There are no public waterlines nearby. Any improvements would rely on well and septic. Soil map for septic drain field potential looks favorable over much of the property.
The surrounding area is mostly large, timberland tracts. Houses are scattered along roads to the south. The town of Chester is about a 15-minute drive away and offers restaurants, doctors, churches, and several stores including hardware, Tractor Supply, and Food Lion Grocery. The tract is about 10 miles from Chester, 33 miles from Rock Hill, 50 miles from Columbia, and 55 miles from Charlotte. All distances are approximate road miles to the center of town. The property address is 2866 Aiken Creek Road, Blackstock, SC.
