Enjoy the serene, rural lifestyle atop this picturesque hilltop overlooking Lake Wateree. Spanning 41 acres, this tract offers a stunning northeastern view of Wateree Creek against a backdrop of rolling hills and wooded terrain. Adjacent to mostly larger tracts of land, this property boasts few neighboring homes, light traffic, and no congestion, providing a tranquil elevated retreat. The absence of an HOA ensures the freedom of land ownership and the many comforts of country living. The highest point of the property (350’ elevation dropping to 250’) has been cleared to showcase the shotgun view of the lake with potential areas to clear along the hilltop for a more encompassing panoramic view. With ample acreage, there's plenty of space for recreational activities and an ideal habitat for deer and turkey hunting. Old trails also meander through the tract to reach more densely wooded portions of the property. Imagine sitting on your porch overlooking the lake below, watching firework shows on the 4th of July, or listening to stars like Eric Church, Laney Wilson, or Marshall Tucker perform in the far-off distance at Carolina Adventure World (about 2.5 miles away). This unique property offers a coveted, rarely-found scenic view of Lake Wateree's shoreline.
