The original purchaser of the land designed the entrance from the road with a vision of what was to be. Ivy grew over the stone and created a setting suitable for the extraordinary topography and views the site had to offer. Resort Custom Homes was engaged to capitalize on it all. Stone and wavy siding exterior, phantom screens, outdoor access from numerous rooms, massive stone fireplaces both inside and out and large windows that highlight Lake Keowee are just a few reasons this home is special. The sought-after view is the â€œbayâ€ between The Vineyards and the state park and includes long golf course views as well.
As you enter the home the lake beckons you through the Great Room to the porch. The Great Room features a vaulted reclaimed wood ceiling and a fireplace built of weighty stone. The doors to the patio slide completely into the wall adding the porch to your entertainment space. The phantom porch screens use a remote to â€œdisappearâ€ as well. The porch floor is stone and was selected for beauty and its low maintenance aspect. A second stone fireplace on the porch separates the grilling/dinning end of the porch from the seating side. The dining end and is also accessible via sliding doors off the kitchen.
The kitchen is centered around a substantial island that boasts seating for six. Separate refrigerator and freezer allow you to stock up and enjoy the lake. Wolf appliances meet the chefâ€™s requirements and two dishwashers keep the clean up crew happy. Another bar counter separates the kitchen from the dining area and is set between stone pillars. On the dining side it affords additional casual seating.
The master bedroom with its vaulted ceiling enjoys panoramic lake views and direct porch access. With his and her vanities, a soaking tub, full tile walk in shower and well-appointed master closet owners will find the combination a true retreat. A large office on the main level overlooks the courtyard.
Wide stairs lead to the lake level and the casual dÃ©cor. As you descend note the colored cement flooring, service bar with barn siding accents and sliding doors to covered stone patio. The three bedrooms on this level all enjoy broad lake views. Two are ensuite and the bunk room is adjacent to a full bath. Tucked at one end of this level is a large room set up as a home theater. Remote controlled black out curtains are great for â€œshow timeâ€ during the day. French doors to the yard and several windows make this easily convertible for numerous other options if you are not a theater room fan.
Step out to the covered patio and level yard and enjoy one of the best sections of Lake Keowee in terms of lake enjoyment and views. Easy dock access allows everyone to participate in water sports and huge firepit offers of water entertainment. Rinse off at the outdoor shower and toss your towels in the laundry room (second laundry) just inside the door. This laundry room houses a commercial size ice machine which compliment the bar in the family room and avoids multiple trips to the main level kitchen.
Rounding out this well-planned home is a private guest suite on the upper level, laundry/butler pantry off the kitchen, plenty of storage space and the three car garage. A quality home on a premier lot in The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards!
