              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: I live in Asheville, NC. I invented and own the company that manufactures InfoTubes and InfoBoxes, that attach to for sale signs. I do business with major retailers and I have been in business since 1988.

              Why the Owner Chose Seneca:
              I fell in love with Lake Keowee after a visit 20 years ago. It is the most pristine lake I have ever seen. Its teal blue waters and white sand beaches are so clear, that they can teach scuba diving here. Lake Keowee is like being on many different lakes at the same time. The mid and south end of the lake are wide open, with forever vista's and sunset views. Traveling northward up the Lake, as elevation increases, the terrain becomes mountainous, with emerald green and cooler water temps, waterfalls, cliff jumping and with river like curves, bluffs and rock outcroppings. The lake is very 'high' end. Just cruising and looking at the gorgeous mansions and homes is a joy in itself. Also, the 350 miles of shoreline ensure that you are never bored and something new is always around the corner. To top it off, this natural beauty and serenity is also located near Seneca and Clemson where shopping, dining, movie theatres and nightclubs are plentiful. Although Lake James and some of the lakes closer to Asheville are beautiful..none compare to Keowee. Added bonus..the prestigous Highlands of North Carolina and a dozen waterfalls are within minutes of the lake. Lake Keowee offers the absolute best of everything and the natural beauty of the area is unsurpassed.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I loved this house the minute I saw it. The level, sandy shoreline and the privacy in a large, open cove were very unique to this area and this lake. Many homes on Keowee are located in the backwash area's or deadend coves with unsafe swimming conditions, low, murky water levels and are surrounded by other boat docks, houses, etc. In addition, many are always shaded and in the dark, or the lots are so steep I would have to debate how bad I wanted to go the the water or back to the house. Well, not this house. This home offered 2 acres of privacy, 505 feet of level sandy shoreline, sunset views and its own boat ramp. The house itself has a great floorplan. It is an updated one-level ranch without stairs or steps. The master bedroom and the Jr master are located on opposite ends of the house, which is great for privacy and both have their own entrance. The floor to ceiling windows allow the lake to come indoors and the water views are amazing from nearly every room in this house. It is warm, comfortable and it is laid out perfectly for guests with different idea's about what an ideal vacation is. If you want action, games, etc. there are perfect area's for that. If you would rather read, sunbath or take a nap...there is the ideal spot for that , too. And, a Guest House??? How perfect is that? You can't find this anywhere else on Keowee. The guest house is completely self-sufficient and sits right on the water. It is cozy, comfortable and allows some guests a complete home of their own. I loved the fact that none of my guests would be stuck in a basement. From the fruit orchard and western sunsets to the rock fireplace, I knew this home was the one for me the minute I saw it.
