Lake Wateree house description

This is a beautiful house on a perfect lot that really offers all the best aspects of being on the lake. The views are absolutely awesome, and there is a great beach and plenty of lakefront, very close to the house. The whole lake experience is very integrated with the house and the outdoor living areas. Kayak use comes free with the house, and boats are available for rent close by.

The house itself has an open plan in the main room, with spectacular views from the kitchen, dining area, and couches. There is a large deck which feels very open to the lake and yard. One bedroom is at the back of the house and does not have a lake view. It has an en suite bathroom with shower and bath. This is where the laundry is located as well. Both bedrooms have queen beds. Both beds have duvets with covers that are laundered after each guest.

The second bedroom faces the lake directly and has a glorious view through the large sliding doors. There is nothing better than leaving the sliding door just slightly open so you can hear the lake lapping from the bed. It has the main bathroom beside it which is also accessible from the living room. The main bathroom has custom tile and decorative concrete counter tops. It can be closed off or opened up to provide a full lake view from the jacuzzi tub and rain head shower. (Don't worry - boaters can't see you - we have checked!)

The loft is small but cozy. It has two twin size mattresses that can be put together or kept apart. It is perfect for children or romantic couples. Access to the loft is via a ladder in the hallway so it is not perfect for older couples, or young children. The loft also has a sneaky view of the lake through a sliding window. Please refer to the pictures, the ceiling is low, but not claustrophobic! There are 2 windows and a skylight.

Inside the house there is a stereo with Bose speakers and flat screen TV, along with wireless internet. We do not have cable, but do have a smart TV with over 300 internet channels available. The kitchen is simple but well appointed. There is a great breakfast bar area along with a big farmhouse style dining table, all with great views of the lake.

Outside is where the place comes into it's own. The lake, dock, and sandy beach are just a few feet from the house. There is a great hammock out front as well. The beach area includes a stone patio and fire pit (that we built ourselves) and we provide all the firewood that you will need for smores or drinks by the lake.

Keywords: Beautiful house on one of the best lots on Lake Wateree. Sunsets are really spectacular. Dock, beach etc. Stone patio and firepit on the beach are really nice. Two bedrooms plus loft. Loft is small but cozy. Two full baths including
jacuzzi tub with lake view.

                      Lake Wateree is the best of all worlds for lake recreation. In the summer it is busy at weekends and holidays with skiers, jetskis, boats, and lakeside restaurants. You can rent your own pontoon boat at Lake Wateree Marina! In the off-season it is wildlife lovers refuge. Bald eagles, osprey, herons, and abundant fishing. On a typical week visit you'll get both the quiet of the weekdays where you have the whole lake to yourself plus the fun of Friday - Sunday where you can watch all the boats. Our house has a perfect sunset view every day of the year, with wonderful light playing across the lake. We recommend watching it from the dock with a glass of wine!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We own an outdoor living company in Charlotte called The Stone Man. Our job is to create beautiful (mainly stone) outdoor living areas for homeowners. We both love the outdoors which is why Lake Wateree is so perfect for us, and our 2 dogs Molly and Pip. We have two small dogs that go everywhere wih us. They love the lake too!

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Wateree:
                      We wanted a place where we could escape the traffic and hustle of the city, but not have to drive too far to get there. Lake Wateree is perfect as it is only an hour from our home in South Charlotte. We enjoy the feeling of calm that we get as soon as we get down to the country roads and beautiful surroundings. While we were dating we spent a lot of time at Lake Wateree so it is a special place for us.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      One of my favorite things to do is to get up early and sit outside with a cup of tea as the sun comes up. It comes up behind the house and lights up the shore on the other side of the lake first. It is a very peaceful time regardless of the time of year and a great time to see some wildlife. We have bald eagles, osprey, and lots of herons and smaller birds. There is also abundant fishing. After a nice breakfast (preferably on the deck), I might take a kayak ride across the lake. It is undeveloped opposite our house, so is a great place for the kayak. If it is windy I might take out the sailboat, or perhaps go for a run or hike on the country roads. Lunch is usually on the deck, and might be followed by a spell lazing on the floats in the water by the beach. We make a habit to watch the sunset every night from the dock. It sets right in from of the house all year, and the colors on the water are spectacular. Sometimes we will go into Camden for dinner, but just as often we will grill out on the deck so we can enjoy the lake some more.
