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!

About Richard Smith

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.

Richard Smith purchased this House in 2006

Why Richard Smith chose Pickens County

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.

What makes this House unique

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!

                                                        The whole group thoroughly enjoyed the house! Thank you for allowing us to rent your lake house! If we decide to rent a lake house again next year we will certainly consider yours.

                                                        Great time!!!

                                                        Neal C.

                                                        Property is outstanding! Location is great with access to stores and to Campus for us. House is roomy and beautiful. Nicely appointed all around. Owner needs to update photos. There are wonderful views all around. Great kitchen for dinner and breakfasts during the stay as well! TYVM. Would love to stay again!

                                                        Excellent Lake Stay


                                                        Stayed for a fall break weekend and rented the boat along with the property. Has beautiful views off the large main level deck and plenty of space. Great large lower level space for the kids with ping pong and pool table.

                                                        Swimming off the dock was also great. We had a great time.

                                                        The property was just as advertised. So relaxing. Perfect location for enjoying the lake

                                                        Susan P.

                                                        I gathered here with my family to celebrate my birthday. Various ages and interests among the group but every one found the stay perfect for them. We used the pontoon boat to motor beautiful lake keowee. Swam off the dock and paddled around in the kayaks. The sunsets were beautiful and the deck and dock perfect locations for watching them. Some needed only time to relax and read. The house is also perfect for that with comfortable couches giving a view of the lake. We hope to be back next year.

                                                        Great experience on Lake Keowee

                                                        Cindy H.Piedmont, SC

                                                        We loved every minute of our stay at this home! Thank you for sharing your place with us. The roominess accommodated all our family and the needs we have. We enjoyed the lake access, your boat and the beauty all around. The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. Again, thank you!

                                                        Spacious and roomy

                                                        Janette M.

                                                        We greatly enjoyed our stay with family rendezvousing from around the country. We loved the outdoor deck with swing, fireplace, and picnic tables to dine as we watched the sunset. It was rainy during much of our stay, but the game room provided fun for both young and old. I have rented many places through HomeAway, rental agencies, and acquaintances, but I have never found anyone more attentive or accommodating than Richard. He was truly a pleasure to work with. You'll love your stay at his home.
