About the property

5 bedroom, 4 full bathrooms, two fireplaces. Close to Clemson University.

Absolutely stunning modern style five bedroom, four bath home. Sitting down a private tree lined drive on nearly one acre of land. The lot is nearly level and features over 200 feet of water frontage and a covered two story boat dock. Located in the perfect spot on the lake. There is a beach for sunning and swimming in front of the house. We provide a kayak and a rowboat for your enjoyment. There is always water here. Located on a big basin, with natural area across the lake. Perfect for tubing and skiing right in front of the house, but off the main lake enough to avoid tons of boat traffic. There are three king size beds, one queen size bed, two sets of bunk beds in the children's room and also a queen size pull out sofa. There is a screened porch for alfresco dining as well as an open deck along the back of the home where you can barbecue and watch the fun happening in the lake. There are two master suites, one upstairs and one down stairs. There is also a second mini kitchen downstairs with a refrigerator and a microwave. There are two complete living areas, one upstairs and one downstairs. They both have fireplaces and spectacular views of the lake. The kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of high quality items. There is enough in the kitchen to cook a holiday meal and have everything you need. There is a Playstation for the kids and lots of video games, as well as board games, dvds and books in case you have a rainy day. The home is stocked as though we live there, nice linens, tons of towels etc. We really have tried to think of everything you could need to make this the vacation of your dreams! Guests return year after year. New this year a 60 inch TV in the upstairs family room and reclining leather sofas also new 2 new TV's in guest bedrooms. We also upgraded to direct TV and have the NFL package for 2015.

About Chris Porter

Owned by a mother and daughter and their husbands. We are Real estate brokers in Florida. We know what it takes to make someone comfortable in a house and have not spared anything in providing everything that we could think of needing for our home. We want to be comfortable and for you to be too!

Chris Porter purchased this house in 2005

Why Chris Porter chose Lake Keowee

We always loved visiting the upstate area. It is a nice change from Florida. All four seasons are visible here. It is a beautiful home, but the grounds still provide for the feeling of seclusion and privacy. It can feel like you are camping on a lake, roast marshmallows over the fire, but you can cook in a gourmet kitchen and sleep on a comfortable bed! Truly the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

The views will take your breath away. From the minute you turn into the neighborhood, there are towering trees of all colors. The home has floor to ceiling windows in both of the living areas and a deck along the back to sit and enjoy the views of the lake. The ability to have a house full of people and still have a place for everyone to get away and have their quiet place sold the house for us. The proximity to Clemson was a surprise benefit. We are now die hard Clemson fans. If you have not experienced a game in Death Valley- you really need to! This home has repeat visitors year after year. After your first visit, you will be ready to schedule the next.

Great Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week! Great house with everything we could want or need. It was clean and everything was in good working order. The lake and the views were beautiful! We loved the dock space and the yard! Hope to come back to Hartwell some time in the future! We are from Columbus, Ohio and wore our Ohio State t shirts into the Clemson store and left with a tshirt and hat! Easy to catch the fever down here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lake house.

  • 5 of 5

The lake house met all our standards. It was very clean and accommodated our family as we celebrated our Clemson graduate. The view of th lake was beautiful and we enjoyed s'mores by the bonfire. I would recommend staying at this beautiful house.

This is a wonderful lake house for families! We loved the beautiful view of the lake and accomodations. We are looking forward to coming back this summer when the weather is warm so we can take advantage of the lake!

Great space and activities in a lake front home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home as a home base for a Clemson game. There are so many great aspects about this house but I will list just a few:

Lake front with lots of toys included including a row boat, a paddle boat, a kayak, an awesome double decker dock with a picnic table on top,

Inside space has a great layout with 2 true master's on opposite ends of the house for privacy, a second "kitchen" with a sink, microwave and refrigerator and close to the game room, kitchen was away from the bedrooms and well equipped,

Location was (somewhat) convenient to campus and restaurants,

The views from the house were incredible, the super moon shone on the lake for all to see,

There were many locations to eat/sit/play including a screened in porch, a deck and indoor dining room, kitchen peninsula, game table in the game room, etc

Just wished we'd have had time to use it all!

Thanks, Chris for being so attentive and easy to contact!!!
