183.41+- Acres – The Old McDonald Farm

515 McDonald Road, 

The Old McDonald Farm is a quintessential representation of a quality hunting and recreational property in the Piedmont region of South Carolina. The fully renovated home was originally a civil war era residence of a several thousand acre king’s grant estate. What was once part of a historical farming operation is now a thriving and well-managed sporting retreat that is 100% turn-key. An eighty acre block of pristine hardwoods serves as the backbone of the property. This timber stand is incredibly secluded and encompasses two small ponds, a creek bottom that stretches for 2/3 of a mile, and a swamp. Several large and strategically placed interior food plots (including three hub and spoke set ups) are located throughout the property and the owner has done a tremendous job of keeping them planted and supplemented with native grasses and dozens of mast trees (including pear, sawtooth, and persimmon). Thirty-four acres of very healthy ten year old loblolly pines and a twenty acre field currently used for baling hay and a seven acre dove field round out the habitat features. Several impressive trophy whitetails have been take in recent years and the turkey hunting and dove field both produce consistently each season. Additional amenities include two barns, public water/natural gas, deer proof fencing around the dove field, and permanent tower deer stands.
