About the Property
Year-round Vacation Home, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3-1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 10 comfortably)
The overhead photo shows the original house on the isolated property and unassigned adjoining peninsula, forming a scenic panorama of your very own personal 'Bordeaux Bay'. Your bay opens directly into deep/open water providing a superb lake vista with great boating and fishing. This new vacation home has its very own, very private, manicured natural lake sand beach, found in precious few locations at Lake Murray. Having your personal beach right in your backyard is such an enjoyable experience…..the beach uniquely differentiates this new construction vacation property from all of the others! Your family will thoroughly enjoy this brand new, very comfortable vacation home with great views, great fishing, great swimming, and a wonderful beach. You will likely see osprey, herons, Canadian geese, mallards, turtles, and sometimes bald eagles. White-tail deer tracks across your beach are a common sight.
The entire house is brand new construction. The new house has a huge 1,000 sq.ft. open vaulted ceiling Family Room - Dining Area - Kitchen on the Main Level, with a 50" fireplace and seven large picture windows to capture that great view of Lake Murray. The kitchen will have all new stainless steel appliances. There will be granite countertops for the kitchen and its island, and the bathroom vanities. The design includes a two-car garage, as well as both a Den and Recreation Room on the Lower Level. The new house will have an open sun deck and a screened porch on the lake side, and of course.....another outdoor shower (with both hot and cold water). The Samsung 50'' Smart Flat Screen LCD HDTV (with 250 channel cable) is great for your favorite TV shows and for sporting events. High speed wireless internet is also available. The house’s sun deck and screen porch face northeast and your bay, making them perfect for all-day use.
At our original lake house, well over one-third of our rentals were from multi-generational families with children, who had previously rented with us one or more times. Several have stayed with us for their 4th, 5th, and now with the new house even 6 times. In our 215+ rentals over the past eight years, we have had families from 29 different states, with over 60% of those families coming from outside of South Carolina. Guests have come from as far away as AZ, CA, MT, MN, NY, VT, France, and England, and we've had multiple guests from Hilton Head, SC and the Florida coast! We always book up the summer period well in advance. Rentals for spring time, spring break, Masters Week, USC Graduation, USC football and baseball games, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and month-long snowbird rentals have also been very popular.
Across your lawn of lush green Palisades Zoysia grass, at the north end of the property is a pergola (arbored patio sitting area) with an outstanding 3.5 mile lake view. It's a wonderful spot for watching the sunrise or moonrise and the July 4th fireworks on Dreher Island. You have a great view of the osprey nest on the peninsula from here as well. A concrete fire pit, with plenty of firewood, is located just off the beach and is great for evenings under the stars! Take a look back to the west across the shoreline, and you will be treated to one of those magnificent South Carolina sunsets. Being able to watch the both sunrise and sunset from your property is a nice vacation bonus.
All of your essential boating needs are addressed with your own boat ramp and a very large floating dock with electric outlets. You can experience great fishing right off the property or the dock, or in the nearby coves. Pull back from your dock and you are right in open water - over 60 feet deep only 300 yards off shore. The lake is over 1/2 mile wide here…..great for skiing, tubing, and jet skis. Your bay is protected by a small island about 150 yards off shore and the peninsula to the east. This configuration of the property provides for a wonderful protected swimming area, either out from your beach or off your large floating dock (12+ foot depths) which has a swim ladder.
Your Bordeaux Bay vacation home is located on a nicely landscaped one acre lot with 125 ft. of natural lake sand beach and 425 ft. of total waterfront (expanded to 800 ft. by the adjoining peninsula). At the east side of the property is a boathouse (shown in aerial photo beside the dock) that we do not rent. With its very unique setting, the new Bordeaux Bay is sure to provide your family with a truly memorable Lake Murray getaway. This brand new house is located on the south side of Lake Murray, northwest of Lexington, just beyond Climax, SC. There is essentially no vehicle traffic on the street, since the house is literally at the “end of the road”.
NOTE - For a number of reasons, we DO NOT allow pets, weddings, or wedding receptions at Bordeaux Bay.

Bald eagles nest off to the east of our property, and sometimes perch in a tall pine just above our driveway, surveying the area for food. The osprey and bald eagles are huge, beautiful birds!

Year Purchased: 2008
Why the Owner Chose Batesburg-Leesville, SC, USA:
We bought this particular property because of it's magnificent view of the lake from the house, it's very unique natural white lake sand beach, and it's expansive 'bay-like' shoreline. The natural lake sand beach right at your doorstep makes this location different from all others. We have poured a tremendous amount of energy into the property, to enhance this naturally beautiful setting, and to provide you with a superb place to relax and enjoy Lake Murray. And now we have a brand new house for you to also enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The adjoining wooded peninsula to the east and the small wooded island 150 yards offshore to the north provide a natural isolation barrier for the property, forming your own private 'bay area' - hence the name 'Bordeaux Bay'. The whole 'bay' is there for you to soak up and enjoy from the Family Room and Kitchen, from the Sun Deck and Screened Porch, from your beautiful yard, and of course, from your natural lake sand beach.
