Westminster house description

From the moment you walk into Fontana-a luxury, lakefront home with gorgeous views of Lake Hartwell-your worries will melt away. Just about an hour and a half from Atlanta, this 3100 square feet luxury, lakefront home features five bedrooms and four bathrooms and sits on a point lot at Lake Hartwell, with 180 degree views of the water.

Fontana sleeps 14 (two kings, two queens, four twin beds, one queen sleeper sofa), has two main-floor master bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) and all bedrooms have lake views!
Whatever your interests or desires, you're sure to find it at Fontana: vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, complete stereo and surround sound, indoor and outdoor stacked stone fireplaces, large screen TV and DVD, internet access, dining tables inside and outside for 12, screened porch as well as deck.
Cooking is as easy or gourmet as you like-our chef-designed kitchen is stocked with beautiful stainless steel appliances and accessories, or you can just enjoy grilling out on the brand new gas grill.
Downstairs is fun for everyone-cocktails in the downstairs wet bar (with full refrigerator), pool table and a second TV and VCR area.
Step outside on your way down to the covered boat slip and sun dock on beautiful Lake Hartwell. Plus, as a guest of Fontana, you have access to our neighborhood club, just five minutes from the house.
The activities at Foxwood Hills Club include golf, tennis courts, a huge playground, indoor and outdoor pools, video games, ping pong, much more!

Fontana is the perfect place for a family gathering or fun weekend away with your friends on Lake Hartwell.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are the Miller family & own this wonderful lake front home with our 3 daughters & their husbands. We live in Holden Beach NC & our daughters live in Charlotte NC & Atlanta GA

Why the Owner Chose Westminster:
We came upon this beautiful spot by happenstance & were fortunate enough to be able to purchase the 2 adjoining lots as well, which provides the feeling of being in the foothills of the mountains along with fabulous lake views. We built this wonderful retreat in 2004 & had a great time searching for the special furniture & accessories for our lake get-away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have the benefit of being located in Oconee County's golden corner, so we're just minutes away from the spectacular mountain town of Highlands NC & Tokeena Gorge in Ga as well as some wonderful National Parks which are all listed in our in house rental Guide. There is golfing nearby at Foxwood Hills Golf Course as well as The Clemson University golf course. Closer by in Walhalla, there are numerous antique shops where we always seem to find treasures, as well as Ram Cat Alley in Seneca with a fantastic antique shop & a discount clothing store called The Fashion Shak. It's fun poking through the racks of stuff until you find that fantastic designer piece of clothing at a fraction of the original cost. There is also a larger version of this cool store in Anderson, just 20 miles from the house.
