You can truly relax in this exceptional 5,000 square foot home, 1 mile from the main highway in Seneca, and only 7 miles from Clemson, opposite game day traffic. Enjoy this pristine lake by renting a boat from the Lake Keowee Marina which is within walking distance, or for a slower pace, you can kayak to one of many islands. A CANOE AND 3 KAYAKS ARE PROVIDED. Pack light! This home is very well equipped for families, including toys, games, beach towels, coolers, wet suits, etc. Stunning water and mountain views can be seen from any of the 3 large decks (each with a grill), the screened-in porch next to the sandbox with playhouse, or from the all-glass dining room with gourmet kitchen. Wireless internet is accessible anywhere in the house. There are 8 TVs with cable and DVD players, and ceiling fans throughout the house, as well as outside. Enjoy the natural beach with fire pit and kayaks. An outdoor shower makes for easy clean-up after the sandbox or beach. We have one high chair, and a new Pack-and Play stored in the laundry room. Please note that the house is child-friendly but not baby-proof.

Our very large gourmet kitchen with central island, 2 microwaves, and double oven is well stocked. The dining room seats 10, and overlooks the lake. The nearby breakfast bar seats 4. The huge 2 story great room has a stacked stone fireplace, TV, and stereo. The wall facing the lake is all glass. The spacious master suite has an attached sitting room which also overlooks the lake and opens out to the deck. The laundry room is large, with plenty of counter space, and a sink. Laundry supplies will be provided for your use.

Upstairs there is a second suite with a king bed and full private bath, IDEAL FOR ANOTHER COUPLE OR A SECOND FAMILY. Also on this level are 2 additional bedrooms which share a full Jack & Jill bath. The king suite and the other two bedrooms are on opposite ends of the house, divided by a bridge walkway. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan and flat panel TV with DVD player.

The lower level walks out onto a covered deck and a screened porch, both with lights and ceiling fans. The sand box with playhouse is adjacent to the screened porch, so small children can be watched from under a fan. There is a gas grill in the screened porch. Meals in the porch are easy with a second kitchen just inside on this level. A bar that seats 5 is adjacent to the kitchen. The game room has children's air hockey, shuffle board, and numerous toys for small children. A full size sleeper sofa is also in this room. In a separate room is a TV with cable, DVD and VCR. A full bath is also on this level. In addition to a sofa with both ends that recline, there are blow-up beds with linens to accommodate additional guests.

There is a large deck made of Ironwood with plenty of seating along the water's edge walkway between the natural sandy beach with fire pit, and the floating dock which has a covered section with table and chairs, small refrigerator, ceiling fan, and deep water. There are kayaks, life jackets, and wetsuits available for your use. The upper-most deck off the great room and dining room has additional seating as well as a gas grill for meals inside or out. The view of the water and mountains is beautiful!

Unlike other lakes in our area, Lake Keowee's water levels are maintained year round, even at the expense of the lakes both upstream and down, if necessary.

The marina has a launch if you should choose to bring your own boat, and there is plenty of room to park a trailer at the bottom of the lower driveway at the house. Also nearby are two grocery stores and two pharmacies, each approximately 1.5 miles away. There are several restaurants and multiple fast-food choices within 5 miles, and the hospital is approximately 4 miles away.

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR HOUSE IS ON A QUIET RESIDENTIAL STREET, AND OUR NEIGHBORS ARE NOT NECESSARILY IN VACATION MODE. THEREFORE, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT OUR HOUSE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR LOUD NOISE OR PARTIES, AND IS INTENDED TO BE FOR THE USE OF ADULTS RESPECTFUL OF OTHERS NEARBY.

PARKING IS LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF 4 VEHICLES.

LASTLY, PLEASE NOTE THAT WHILE FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN ARE OF COURSE WELCOME, THE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE PARTY SIGNING THE RENTAL AGREEMENT MUST BE AT LEAST 35 YEARS OLD, AND MUST BE AN OCCUPANT OF THE HOUSE DURING THE TERM OF THE AGREEMENT. RENTING ON BEHALF OF GUESTS LESS THAN 35 YEARS OLD IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

Location

52 Miles
Nearest Airport
Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP)

Car: Necessary

Lake Keowee has 300 miles of shoreline and an average depth of 54 feet. Fresh water from mountain springs and streams feeds into this extremely clean lake. Its crystal clear water is great for boating and water sports, and the fishing is outstanding. We're located 45 minutes west of Greenville,SC and 2 hours from Atlanta. Lake Keowee Marina is literally right around the corner where boats and water sports equipment are available for rent. Also at the marina is the Tiki Hut, a bar and open-air restaurant open for lunch and dinner. PLEASE NOTE that we are about as close to Clemson as you can get and still be on the lake!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Jim is a physician who practices in Seneca, about 3 miles from the lake house, and so is nearby most weekdays. Diane is a retired nurse anesthetist, now at home with our 3 children. We've lived in the Upstate of SC Carolina since the early 1990s with this house as our primary residence until 2006, and can think of no other place we'd rather be. We are still only 30 minutes away, and could never completely leave this house, or the lake with mountains in the backdrop. Come visit, and you'll understand why.
