About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

This beautiful custom built, three-story Real Log Home is located on a 1 ½ acre lot on Lake Keowee. The owner/builder constructed the 5000+ sq. ft. home in 2005 and captured all of the fine details. Not only does the home provide large open water and mountain views, but the lot has plenty of trees and green space.

The home has 6 large bedrooms and 3 ½ baths, a spacious loft area with incredible lake views. Five of the home’s bedrooms offer a picturesque view of the lake. Three bedrooms are upstairs with a Jack and Jill Bathroom. The main level includes the master bedroom and master bath (shower, jetted tub, separate his and her vanities). French doors open from the master room onto the deck.

The great room has a high vaulted tongue & groove ceilings and has windows from the floor to ceiling to capture the beauty of Lake Keowee. A gas fireplace enhances the room. Beautiful hickory wood floors are on the main level (carpet and tile in the master bedroom and bath). The dining room is included in this open floor plan. Dine inside or out and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

A gourmet chef’s kitchen includes a five burner gas range, dual ovens, a microwave, two side by side refrigerators with dual ice makers and bottom freezers, walk-in pantry, beverage cooler, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, spacious island with prep sink and filtered water tap, deep double commercial sink with disposal and cutting area. The breakfast bar provides additional seating. This kitchen overlooks the great room and dining area. This kitchen will bring out the gourmet in you.

The home has two spacious decks. The deck off of the main level includes a fireplace, porch swing, and gas grill. The deck off of the lower level provides you with an easy access to the lake.

The newly built walk-out basement includes two bedrooms and a full bathroom. A great room includes a Clemson orange pool table, separate ping pong table, dart board, gas fireplace, wet bar, and flat screen television.

A laundry room with a washer and dryer is available for use on the main level.

A private covered dock with a boat lift, wave runner ramp, and two kayaks continue the adventure. Not only does the dock provide great swimming opportunities, but it also provides a relaxing backdrop. The location also provides easy access to a boat ramp (less than 1/2 mile – Warpath Landing). In fact, you can view the ramp from the neighborhood. For your convenience, there is plenty of space to park your boat trailer at the top of our driveway.

Great location. The home is within minutes to Clemson and Seneca. Downtown Greenville, SC and Cashiers NC is approximately 45 minutes.

As well, I have a pontoon boat that can be rented with the house at a good price!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Richard Smith moved to Lake Keowee in 1979, and is a graduate of Seneca High School and Clemson University. As a result, he has a significant knowledge of the area and Lake Keowee (restrictions, lot prices, peak-season vs. year-round living). After graduating from Clemson in 1988, he moved to Atlanta and worked for VeriFone/HP and traveled the country as a Systems Analyst. In 2003, Richard and his wife returned to his roots believing the quality of life that the area offers is incredible. They selected the area to live, to work, and to raise their two children. He started Southern Horizon Builders, LLC. Richard has experience in renovations and residential building in NC & SC allowing him to provide insight regarding structure, enhancements, and building or renovation costs. Richard received his Real Estate License in 2011 and has worked in vacation rentals, and helping others find the home of their dreams or to sell their current home. Richard joined the team at the Monaghan Company in 2014.

Why the Owner Chose Six Mile, SC, USA:
I grew up on Lake Keowee and always wanted to build a house on the lake. Once that day came, I wanted a big open water view with nice sunsets. I purchase two lots side by side back in 1998 and never look back. This is such a unique property with year round sunsets and very peaceful.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will be amaze of just the number of different wildlife you can spot on any given day. Just sitting off the back deck, you will be able to experience how peaceful it really is!
