Martin Creek Farm presents a unique opportunity to purchase a remarkable +-122 acre estate and an adjacent 117 acres off the beaten path in one of the most charming rural communities in southern Greenville County. Originally part of an intensely managed 508 acre hunting preserve, the +-122 acres consists of a +-100 acre stand of towering thirty-two year old loblolly pines that has been thinned twice and +-20 acres of beautiful hardwood creek bottoms.  Four small food plots and the home site make up the balance of the property along with a maintained trail system and a large bottom field situated along the +-3,670 feet of Martin Creek frontage. Located less than ¼ mile from the Reedy River, this section of creek is an excellent wildlife corridor, and the deer and turkey numbers thrive in the property’s diverse habitat. The neighboring 117 acres is completely wooded and adds just under 1,000 feet of creek frontage to the offering.

The centerpiece of Martin Creek Farm sits at the end of a scenic, winding driveway that stretches close to ½ a mile before reaching the primary residence. The home, custom built by CarsonSpeer in 2017, blends the charm of a traditional Sothern farmhouse with modern style and the most efficient constructions practices. Hardie board and PVC were used almost exclusively in place of wood to achieve maximum durability. The traditional farmhouse front porch that wraps around the home (reaching the garage) provides a sense of functionality and a non-traditional open floor plan implemented on the main level offers a seamless flow through the kitchen, living room, and dining room with an incredibly unique butler’s pantry as the focal point. Natural light was a major focus for the entire home and the large window over the kitchen sink brightens this spacious area which includes open shelving, quartz countertops, and a huge island. The kitchen window was strategically implemented to capture a view reflecting the modern farmhouse atmosphere and overlooks a chicken coop, garden, and inground pool, hot tub, and lounge chairs. The home is 4,300 square feet and has four bedrooms and four full baths with a master suite on the main level, as well as vaulted ceilings/exposed beams, a screen porch, a laundry room, two bonus rooms and an office, landscaping with galvanized raised beds, and a detached three car garage. High levels of craftsmanship and attention to detail are apparent in every square foot of the home and Martin Creek Farm is a remarkable opportunity to experience rural living in a part of the Piedmont region of South Carolina with a colorful history and truly thriving local community.

Fork Shoals, one of Greenville County’s oldest settlements, was founded in the late 1700’s with its original habitants establishing farms, plantations, schools, churches, shops, and mills. This area was home to ancient Cherokee hunting grounds as well as Greenville County’s only Revolutionary War battle. For many years residents worked as farmers and in the textile industry and Fork Shoals is also the proud home of one of the first accredited rural high schools in the state as well as some of the oldest churches in the county. Today Fork Shoals is home to an award-winning elementary school (Fork Shoals Elementary), a stunning 90-acre county park located on a 200 foot wide waterfall on the Reedy River with miles of trails (Cedar Falls Park), a vibrant 12-acre working winery and vineyard (City Scape Winery), and a 100 acre Dairy Farm, Creamery, and Grocery store that received South Carolina’s highest civilian honor in 2021, the ‘Order of Palmetto’, for its leadership in sustainable agricultural practices (Happy Cow Creamery). All four of these local treasures are just a few miles from Martin Creek Farm and each one contributes to an unmistakable culture of the highest quality rural lifestyle one can find just 30 minutes outside of Greenville SC offering a perfect mix of city amenities and a Southern small-town feel.
