About the owner: My wife and I both worked for IBM from which I retired the year we designed and built this home on beautiful Lake Keowee. We have four children and 10 grandchildren. Sandra is still working as a travel agent and we spend a lot of our time traveling. We also spend several months in Mexico every year. So we decided that we should share our little corner of paradise. We hope that you will come and enjoy our home and have a wonderful vacation.
