RAMSEY GROVE PLANTATION

RAMSEY GROVE PLANTATION

2689 ACRES ON THE BLACK RIVER

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA

 

Located seven miles from the seaport of Georgetown, South Carolina, historic Ramsey Grove is being offered for sale for the first time in over 100 years. Originally established in 1731 by a grant of 500 acres from King George II, today the plantation comprises some 2689 acres meticulously managed for wildlife.

 

Most notably is Ramsey Grove's legendary 160 acres of controlled freshwater impoundments planted in rice and corn for waterfowl. Another 100 acres of duck impoundments may be created on one of the hardwood drains on the property. Remaining acreage of mature pine, mixed pine and hardwoods, hardwood bottoms, and selectively placed food plots have been professionally managed for both deer and turkey habitat.

A current professional timber cruise by well-known Milliken Forestry has established standing timber value at more than $3.6 million. Upland quail courses could be easily developed but historically have not been emphasized. The Ramsey Grove Lake with big bass and bream and a 5-stand clay bird range complement the many hunting opportunities at Ramsey Grove.

The property has over six tenths of a mile frontage on the Black River and the same on Six Mile Creek. Both offer freshwater fishing and boating opportunities with downtown Georgetown less than thirty minutes away by water. Both offshore and inshore boating and fishing options are endless. Boats can be launched and tied up at the covered Boat House and Dock just a few steps from the Lodge.

The spacious riverfront lodge has twelve bedrooms and a commercial kitchen to host large family gatherings or hunt club guests. Other structures include a modern Manager's House, old caretaker's house, Plantation Office, Guide's Bunkhouse and a small but state of the art IT-enabled Conference Center for business functions. The Conference Center could easily be converted to a Guest House or a Master Bedroom Cottage. Other improvements include equipment sheds, utility warehouse, dog kennels, and several docks on the Ramsey Grove Lake and the Black River.

The Grounds have been meticulously maintained. Rice Fields are planted for the upcoming duck season and food plots are being readied for deer hunting. An abundant turkey population has been cared for by Mark Prudhomme, the long-time plantation manager and 5-time World Turkey Call Champion.

Ramsey Grove is turnkey, there is no Conservation Easement on the property, it is ready to hunt, fish, explore and enjoy. Substantial tax benefits may be available to an owner who would protect the property from future development.

 

 Ramsey Grove Plantation - Main Entrance

Ramsey Grove got its name in the 1700's from the huge grove of live oaks

located on the River. At that time the plantation was owned by a member

of the Ramsay family. The "a" in Ramsay was changed to an "e" years later.
