Six Mile chateau / country house description

This is an owner designed, owner built, wood and stone mountain home. Real wood throughout. Three fireplaces, wood stove, streams on both sides of house. High vaulted ceilings throughout. This is an unusual place. House sits among 150 year old trees. Large, elevated, front stone deck, and stone back patio with outside fireplace. Wood and stone floors throughout. The home is more than a half mile off the main road and is totally secluded. There is a small fish pond on the property along with a number of streams and a waterfall. There are hiking trails on property, hilly terrain.

There are three kayaks and four mountain bikes on the property for you use (all safety equipment is included too). There is a small climbing wall in the barn on the property.

The inside is decorated to suit the location, simple country construction and details, not fancy. Solid wood and rock floors with oriental rugs. There is a game room with poker table and bar. There are two Sony flat screen TVs with directv connection. Bellsouth dsl and wireless. There are two large refrigs and a bar refrig. There is about 4200 total sq ft in the house.

Two of the baths have double showers. There is a hot tub on the front patio. There are no neighbors close by. most of the rooms have no curtains or blinds.

the home has three separate zones/thermostats heating and AC. the kitchen has granite countertops and owner built wood center island. large gas cook top and sub zero refrig/freezer. lots of gourmet tools, pots and pans. trash compactor. cabinets are simple, hand made.

the drive from the main road to the house is about 1/2 mile, partly paved and partly loose gravel, mildly steep in a couple places. it is not an interstate highway.

There are iron and stone gates at the head of the main road that allow you to lock the property to prevent access. However in the 30+ years of owning this place, we have never had a single intruder. This is rural farm land. There are houses nearby on the main road, but this is countryside, not downtown.

Maid service is provided every other day. Linens and basic food essentials provided. one load of firewood is provided as part of the rental fee; additional firewood is $25 per quarter face cord.

There are two ATVs for rent from owner which you can use on the property, or if you have a trailer, you can take them to locally to ride. $175 per day each. Rental agreement and legal forms required for ATV use.

Skeet shooting can be arranged on site. Guided deer and turkey hunting are also available during season. Proper SC hunting license required. Contact us for more information and pricing.

Property is close to Issaqueena Forest, about 5 miles to Lakes Hartwell and Keowee. the closest landing on Keowee is Gap Hill or Mile Creek, and the closest on Hartwell is Twelve Mile or Lawrence Bridge.

                  Our home is convenient to Clemson, which is about 12 miles away and an easy 20 minute drive, except during football weekends!! you should allow at least an hour to get from our home to the stadium on game days.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1980

                  About the owner: My father, wife, and I built this home ourselves. It took about 5 years total from wood we had cut locally and on our farm in south Georgia. We raised our two boys on this property until 2006. I am a retired prof of econ at Clemson and living mostly in MT and a second home in downtown Clemson.

                  Why the Owner Chose Six Mile:
                  The site is wooded, secluded, quiet, and full of wildlife, deer, turkey, herons, pileated woodpeckers, owls, squirrels, and more. For those who enjoy the outdoors, this home is perfect. It is half a mile off the main road, and there are no neighbors.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Rare chance to enjoy the foothills of SC with plenty of open space, trees, land, and no neighbors. This property is located in the woods.
