Lake Jocassee house description

This recently constructed, beautiful 1600 square foot home was built sparing no expense.

Elegant without pretense, this home features wormy oak floors throughout. The cabinetry in the kitchen is custom made from antique heart pine and walnut. The countertops are solid granite throughout. The home was built to be LEED certified and is extremely comfortable and efficient. Reclaimed materials and antiques were used throughout. From the antique light fixtures to the original Morris chair in the bedroom, this home exudes functional elegance. Built as a caretaker's residence for The Jocassee Sanctuary, (see website - thejocasseeclub dot com) the home was constructed with the intent to provide the comforts of a home with the look and feel of a mountain cabin getaway.

The home features a detached office/laundry that boasts it's own full bath including a marble tiled shower, covered porch, flat screen TV and mini bar. A great place for the kid's to hang out or simply used as another sleeping area. The home is nestled in the mountain situated on the back of a waterfront lot and a short walk from the waterfront. Walk a short distance to the lake and the dock which has a private single slip, covered boat dock with sun deck. Remember Jocassee is a mountain lake and all terrain is hilly. You will notice improvement in fitness in a week!

With miles upon miles of logging roads criss crossing the mountain wilderness, a short drive or bike ride can take you deep into an adventure and unimaginable wild places.

All of this and more is literally at your back door.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Hi, my name is Bill, long time resident on Lake Jocassee. We are proud to be able to offer this fine home for your vacation and glad you have chosen to spend some time on Lake Jocassee and this beautiful part of our country.

                          Why the Owner Chose Lake Jocassee:
                          We have owned a home on Lake Jocassee for over 20 years. When we had the opportunity to purchase more of the extremely rare land, we jumped at the chance. Originally constructed as the full time residence for a live in caretaker for The Jocassee Club, (see website - thejocasseeclub). The home is now available for rental to those who know the special magic surrounding Lake Jocassee. Lake Jocassee is known by some as the Lake Tahoe of the East. With its crystal clear waters and thousands of acres of protected land, there is nowhere else that has the same magic as Lake Jocassee.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Quiet, solitude and togetherness are often the things in our hectic world that truly rejuvenate and draws us closer together. Lake Jocassee offers that in spades, but what we really like about Jocassee Haven is that due to the location of the home on the lot, we never hear lake noise on the few days of the year even when many boaters are out. It is that sense of being enveloped in the mountains and away from it all that makes us love Lake Jocassee so very much and especially a stay in Jocassee Haven.
