Relax in our 4200 square foot Mountain House -style waterfront home right on tranquil Lake Hartwell, 25 minutes from Clemson, 90 minutes from Atlanta and 45 minutes from Greenville. Nestled on one full acre of woods and rolling lawns, this home feels totally secluded yet is a simple drive from Atlanta, Charlotte, or Greenville. The house is designed by a Colorado Mountain House architect and provides the true away-from-the-city feel. Aside from the standard new home features, the house offers large windows and decks overlooking the back yard & lake, a private covered boat dock, a pool table and an oversize master bedroom suite taking up the entire 3rd level of the house. Also, be sure to try the new, custom fire-pit deck with a 42-inch fire pit at the edge of the yard overlooking the lake (see photos). IN 2016 – all bathrooms and kitchen have been remodeled.
This three story home has a combination of hardwood floors and carpet, rich wood ceilings and interior finish (like a hunting lodge), comfortable furniture (and rocking chairs), a modern, spacious kitchen with island, and three stone fire places. Each level has a full bathroom, and a TV and DVD player equipped with DirecTV. The main level houses two bedrooms, each with queen beds, the main living room area overlooking the lake through a wall of windows, the kitchen and dining room. The first floor (basement) has two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and one for the kids with two twin beds), a large bathroom, sofa seating area and plenty of room for playing games or lounging. A big screen TV overlooks a billiards table and card table and leather chairs, surrounded by a stone fireplace on one side and a wall of French doors opening to the lower deck and the back yard. The third floor houses a large master bedroom /bathroom suite, sitting area, small office area and stone fireplace all overlooking the large façade of windows. The master bathroom has a gorgeous vintage clawfoot tub and walk-in shower.
A quick walk down hill through the back yard and using steps (next to the fire pit deck), you will find a private covered dock, where you can easily tie up a boat if you bring one (deep water cove). You'll enjoy spending the entire day on and around the dock and swimming in this quiet cove away from the wind, waves and boat traffic. Note that the last portion of the walk to the dock can be steep and requires caution, particularly if the water level if low!
The House is about 90-minutes north of downtown Atlanta, and only 45 minutes from Greenville, SC making this an easy weekend or full-week getaway.
