Lexington house description

You are sure to enjoy this very unique Lake Murray, south shore vacation rental setting! The included photos show the isolated property and unassigned adjoining peninsula, forming a scenic panorama of your very own personal 'Bordeaux Bay'. Your bay opens directly into deep/open water providing a superb lake vista and great boating and fishing. The 1870 square foot vacation home has its very own, very private, manicured natural lake sand beach, found in precious few locations at Lake Murray. Having your personal natural lake sand beach right in your backyard is such an enjoyable experience…..it uniquely differentiates this vacation property from all the others! Your family will thoroughly enjoy this very comfortable home with great views, great fishing, great swimming, and a wonderful beach. For the 5th consecutive year, we have an active osprey nest on the platform in the large tree just beside the house. During the spring and summer you have a fabulous view of the adults flying in to the nest to feed their chicks from your back deck. You will also likely see Canadian geese, mallards and wood ducks, turtles, and sometimes bald eagles. White-tail deer tracks across your beach are a common sight.

Almost half (45%) of our rental time this past year was from families who had previously rented with us one or more times, with some back for their 4th time. Last winter we had both a 1 month-long and a 2 month-long snowbird rental. Two thirds of our 2014 summer reservations are from our very loyal returning families, most being multi-generational families with children. In our 150+ rentals over 6 years, we have had families from 27 different states, with over 60% of those families coming from outside of South Carolina. Guests have come from as far away as CA, MN, NY, VT, and England. We have already begun booking dates in spring and summer 2015. Our May-September dates are always reserved very early. Masters Week, USC Graduation, USC football and baseball games, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are also very popular periods.

We updated the entire house....furniture, appliances, and carpet. Five huge floor-to-ceiling windows provide a fabulous view of your very private beach, the isolated bay, and the lake from the Family Room and Dining Room. The 40'' flat screen HDTV (with 200 Channel DishTV) may distract your attention from the superb view outside. Satellite wireless internet is also available. Ceiling fans are in the Family Room, all bedrooms, and on the covered porch. The house’s open deck and covered back porch face northeast and your bay, making them perfect for all-day use. We have an outside shower (with both hot and cold water).....great for rinsing off after enjoying your beach.

Across your lawn of lush green Palisades Zoysia grass, at the north end of the property is a pergola (arbored patio sitting area) with an outstanding 3.5 mile lake view. It's a wonderful spot for watching the sunrise or moonrise, and the July 4th fireworks on Dreher Island. A concrete fire pit, with plenty of firewood, is located just off the beach and is great for evenings under the stars! Take a look back to the west across the shoreline, and you will be treated to one of those magnificent South Carolina sunsets.

All of your essential boating needs are addressed with your own boat ramp and a very large floating dock with electric outlets. You can experience great fishing right off the property or the dock, or in the abundant nearby coves. Pull back from your dock and you are right in open water - over 60 feet deep only 300 yards off shore. The lake is over 1/2 mile wide here…..great for skiing, tubing, and jet skis. Your bay is protected by a small island about 100 yards off shore and the peninsula to the east. This configuration of the property provides for a wonderful protected swimming area, either out from your beach or off your large floating dock (12+ foot depths) which has a swim ladder.

Your Bordeaux Bay vacation home is located on a nicely landscaped one acre lot with 125 ft. of natural lake sand beach and 425 ft. of total waterfront (expanded to 800 ft. by the adjoining peninsula). At the east side of the property is a boathouse (shown in aerial photo beside the dock) that we do not rent. With its very unique setting, Bordeaux Bay is sure to provide your family with a truly memorable Lake Murray getaway. This very clean property is located on the south side of Lake Murray, northwest of Lexington, just beyond Climax, SC. There is essentially no vehicle traffic on the street, since the house is literally at the “end of the road”.

NOTE - For a number of reasons, we DO NOT allow weddings or wedding receptions at Bordeaux Bay.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              Why the Owner Chose Lexington:
              We bought this particular property because of it's magnificent view of the lake from the house, it's very unique natural white lake sand beach, and it's expansive 'bay-like' shoreline. The natural lake sand beach right at your doorstep makes this location different from all others. We have poured a tremendous amount of energy into the property, to enhance this naturally beautiful setting, and to provide you with a superb place to relax and enjoy Lake Murray.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The adjoining wooded peninsula to the east and the small wooded island 100 yards offshore to the north provide a natural isolation barrier for the property, forming your own private 'bay area' - hence the name 'Bordeaux Bay'. When you are outside in the yard, or on your natural lake sand beach, the whole 'bay' is there for you to soak up and enjoy.
