Screven Co / Sylvania Brier Creek Retreat

$ 399,000
837 Linger Long Rd,


PRICE REDUCED!! The historic Lingerlong Retreat is a truly unique property surrounded by beautiful Swamp White Oaks and nestled up to the pure flowing water of Brier Creek.  It doesn’t matter the season, this property never ceases to entertain all ages.  Whether it’s a relaxing kayak drift down the peaceful gurgling creek, or big game hunting at its best.  Or perhaps just a nice fire on the patio while you fish for catfish off the back porch.  The spring fed creek is teeming with a variety of edible freshwater species and the old growth forest surrounding the property is home to a wide variety of nature and migrating birds. From the perfectly preserved 1800 era fishing cabin, which is now the kitchen/dining area, to the occasional piece of Indian pottery found in the driveway; this property has a rich history of those who enjoyed being in nature and in a beautiful spot. The home has 3 bedrooms, an additional bonus room with bed, and plenty of extra space downstairs or upstairs to sleep or house additional guests if and when needed. The custom woodwork that's been remodeled on the interior is truly one of a kind and a must see. There are multiple outbuildings, including a guest house, entertainment building w/ pool table, storage building, pole barn shed, and plenty of outdoor deck and porch space. The Lingerlong swimming hole is known throughout the community as the coolest spot to swim, literally.  Brier Creek is spring fed so in the hottest months when the creek gets lower, the temperature never rises above 78 degrees. This is whether it's in the spring when the Redbreast and Bluegill are spawning just beside the boat landing, or summer when the clear waters of Brier Creek cool those who soak in the spring-fed Savannah River tributary.  Located just across the creek is Tuckahoe WMA, which is 15,100 acres bordering Brier Creek, all the way to the Savannah River. Hunting Nearby includes “Mouth of the Creek” Hunting Club which has 2,400 acres and a membership is available with the purchase of this property.  Hunting includes turkey, deer, and hogs.
