An Amazing Transformation

44 Long Swamp Court hit the market yesterday with an asking price of $349,900. The remodel of this property would’ve made a great episode for my hypothetical reality show “Flipping Bent Tree”.

50 Years Ago This Month

On October 30, 1969 the Pickens County Progress had a front page article announcing the plans for the development of Bent Tree.  The first line of the article began “Last Thursday night at the Lions Club meeting personnel from Spratlin Associates, Inc., of Atlanta revealed for the first time publicly the projected plans for a multi-million dollar investment in Pickens County…”.

“Come see this nature-lovers’ paradise.”

11 Briar Vista in Bent Tree hit the market with an asking price of $133,900.  Click here to link to the listing information.  While looking at the listing, the lot size jumped out at me as unusually small (it says the 2 bed / 2 bath home sits on only .33 acres). So, I looked it up on the tax assessor’s site, which says the home is actually on a .42 acre lot.  And, there might be a possibility to purchase/combine the empty lots adjacent to the property, to make it an even better nature-lovers’ paradise.
