2 private islands sportsmen can enjoy a combined 164 acres of privacy in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. “Big” Shelton Island is 150 acres, and “Little” Shelton Island is 14 acres. This unspoiled territory is filled with stunning scenery which is peaceful and relaxing. Shelton Island is surrounded by the natural flow of the Broad River on all sides. A deeded 50' wide easement to a riverside landing from Shelton Road provides access from the Fairfield County shoreline (Eastern side) of the river - Newberry and Union Counties are on the Western Side. The island is rich with deer, turkey, and hogs while the water is bountiful with fish and ducks. Explore the 3 ½ miles of shoreline while canoeing and kayaking around the rocks and shoals. Reel in one of the best fishing spots for smallmouth bass in the Southeast - uncommon in most Southern waters. An elevated 1000 sqft - 2B/1Ba cabin offers shelter and living area and is perfect for hunting trips or weekend getaways. Gas appliances provide heat, cooking fuel, and hot water. The cabin was intentionally built near one of the more prominent shoals so the water can be heard rushing downstream. A portion of Sumter National Forest also surrounds the island, offering undisturbed shorelines and rolling hills of protected federal land. Shelton is situated within convenient proximity to several major cities (Greenville, Columbia, and Charlotte) and interstates (I-20, I-26, I-77). This property is not currently bound by a conservation easement, however, the preliminary engineering studies for a conservation easement and shoreline mitigation plan have already been performed and the Seller may consider selling the entire property with the mitigation credits or each individually. For those who love the outdoors or simply just want to get away, Shelton Island offers all of that and more.
