Welcome to our dream home on Lake Keowee! No expenses spared, this home is gorgeous! The home is set in a small secluded and private gated community on the southern part of Lake Keowee. The property offers 180 degrees views of the lake from almost every room in the house. To the left of the home is a beautiful sandy cove bordered by two uninhabited islands that stretch out for ½ mile connected by two sandbars. Directly in front of the home and to the right are 300 feet of private water front access, compete with a large boat dock. While the neighborhood provides a private and quiet setting, the home is convenient to all the great restaurants and activities in Seneca and Clemson area,

The main indoor living area is 5,500 sq. ft, and the home has four porches facing the lake which provides an additional 2000 sq. ft of enclosed porch and patio living.

All six bedrooms have direct waterfront views. Four bedrooms have king-size beds. 1 bedroom has two queens and the bunk room consists of 2 bunks (XL long twins/ over queens). The main level kitchen is to die for! It’s beautiful and provides plenty of cabinet space and an oversized island for cooking and entertaining. Appliances are all professional grade Thermador.

The home consists of two oversized family rooms. The main level Lodge Room, has 23 ft ceilings, a beautiful floor to ceiling stone, gas fireplace. The lower level family room is set up as the entertainment area and has a pool table, a 70 inch TV and a full-size kitchen.

There are two porches on the main level and two on the lower level. The two larger porches are for relaxing and enjoying the views of the lake. Each of these porches have imported Italian tile and large 50-inch custom wood burning fireplaces. The other two porches are at the opposite end of the house, include one for dining and grilling.

The back of the house is just 50 feet away from the water, and offers an easy grade down to the flat back yard which has 3000 sq ft of landscaped recreation areas including a fire pit, and outdoor seating.

BTW – It’s an environmentally friendly green house! Solar power provides 14 Kw of electricity!

About Lake Keowee Properties, LLC

I'm a native New Yorker who moved to Atlanta in 1996. My husband Fran is from Boston and New Hampshire. We have three children who have spent most of their childhood vacationing on lake Keowee.

We purchased this land in 2012. It took us about 2 years to review 1000's of home plans before we finally developed the plans that we felt maximized the unique location of the lot and ensured that every room had a beautiful view of the lake. We broke ground on this new home in October 2015 and finally finished construction, landscaping and furnishing it by May 2017

Lake Keowee Properties, LLC purchased this house in 2017

Why Lake Keowee Properties, LLC chose West Union

Simple - Private, secluded big water views to die for! The lot is unique, and unlike any other location in lake Keowee as it offers unencumbered view of the lake. To the left of the home are two private islands. To the right on far shore is protected state land.

After moving to Atlanta we began shopping for a get away location for day trips and camping. We tried a lot of other beautiful places within 2 hours of Atlanta before we finally found Lake Keowee in 2003. We were amazed at how beautiful the lake was. The water is a beautiful emerald green and the Appalachian mountains provide a stunning view from the water headed north.

We discovered this unique piece of land in 2012, and it was so stunning that we closed on it within one week!

What makes this house unique

Quite exclusive gated neighborhood, with unobstructed views of the lake. 180 degree view of big water, framed by public areas that will never be built on ; two undeveloped islands border the view on the left and state owned parks border the view to the right. A public boat ramp is less than 1/4 mile away by water.

10 minutes to shopping in West Union which has a great Ingles supermarket, Starbucks, restaurants, antique shopping

Absolutely fabulous, new, modern, gorgeous home with beautiful lake views and easy access! In private, gated community. Tons of space & amazing huge kitchen, open to spacious living and dining room, complete with fireplace. Screened in dining area with grill, pool table, fire pit by lake, kayaks...I could go on and on. Best of all, the loveliest owners you could hope to deal with. A+++/5 star:)

When you come back in the summer time, when the lake is warm... you're going to love the home 300% more! Hope to see you again soon! Fran & Lynn

Amazing Modern Spacious Home

We had a great time with our entire extended family. Took some trips over to the Tiki Hut and South Cove Park by boat. Planning on returning next summer!

A beautiful surprise in my own state!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the prettiest homes we’ve ever rented! The open spaces and views are breathtaking. The lake is so private and quiet..great for swimming and boating and kayaking too! A topnotch kitchen and beautiful places to gather for meals in this home so we chose to stay in and cook each night but nice cities within a short drive. This lake is the perfect temperature...not as chilly as Toxaway. We hope to go back !!

Relaxation At It's Finest!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 recently vacationed at this amazing property. It was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation we have had in a long time! The house was immaculate and had everything you could ever need to feel comfortable down to the memory foam beds. Pure bliss! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could ever need. There was enough seating for everyone to sit and eat together which is hard to find in a rental for so many people! The incredible porches provided a beautiful, relaxing retreat for both the adults and the children (ages 1-14) in our family. We brought our own boat, and the convenience of launching from the public dock nearby in addition to the trailer storage provided by the owners was an added bonus. We rented paddle boards from Endless Adventures (great customer service and prices!), and the kids and adults in our group loved paddling and using the kayaks provided at the home to visit the nearby sandbars. The kids in our group entertained themselves for hours swimming and paddling around the quiet cove in front of the house and the sandbars. The owners were extremely accommodating in answering our questions before, during, and after our stay. I can't say enough wonderful things about this amazing home and our stay here. Needless to say, we have already booked our trip back for next summer!
