AFM is pleased to offer, as exclusive listing agent, Dochas at Black River, one of the preeminent South Carolina recreational properties on the market today. Located along the banks of the historic Black River, this 1,317 acres comes with a long history of land and wildlife management, unparalleled seclusion with over five (5) miles of river frontage, and natural and improved amenities to offer excellent turn-key hunting and fishing opportunities.
At the end of the main entrance into Dochas at Black River sits a two bedroom cabin with a full kitchen, full bathroom, HVAC, a renovated family room, an outside-access storage room, and a well maintained lawn with a BBQ pit. The land itself could best be described as a combination of lowcountry bottomland with mast-producing hardwoods, upland planted cropland, young and mature planted longleaf and loblolly pine stands, and several strategically located food plots put in place as part of a wildlife management plan. The management plan combines all the natural and improved amenities in this 1,317 acres (1,174 of which is protected by a WRP/Conservation Easement) to ensure the wildlife habitat for whitetail deer, turkey, quail, dove, and ducks will continue to flourish. In addition, there have been several trophy bucks harvested within a trophy management system sustaining the cycle of large bucks over the years inhabiting the property. Other recreational opportunities outside of hunting season include wild boar hunting and a variety of fishing and boating on the Black River and small internal creeks.
Two boat landings situated on the headwaters of the easily navigable portion of Black River provide easy access to the lower Black River. Centuries of sedimentation from the unique, gradual 90 degree curve of the river provide high ground along the riverbanks and throughout some of the mature pine and hardwood in the property's bottomland portion. One of the most unique features of Dochas is the entire western and southern boundary totalling five miles (Black River) and eastern boundary totalling one mile (Mill Branch Creek) which have the benefit of a natural barrier; a feature which cannot be duplicated and provides for seclusion, significantly improving the ability to manage wildlife on the property.
The name of this property comes from the early Scottish settlers along the banks of Black River. Dochas means "hope" in Gaelic, the language spoken by Scottish Highlanders. Many sought their futures here through "hope" of a prosperous and happy rural life.
