Property description

Recent improvements Sept 2016: Major remodel just completed!! Every surface inside the home is brand new. Granite counter tops, stainless kitchen appliances, all new window, doors, totally remodeled bathrooms (rain head shower head in walk in shower). Part of basement is newly finished.
FIREWORKS here are the weekend before the 4th and you can view them from your boat or off the Hartwell Dam.
Only 1 hour to Greenville SC which has been written up as one of the top 10 downtown revitalizations in the country! A must see with 100 restaurants downtown, world class museums and waterfalls a short drive away. A must see! Only an hour to an hour and a half to UGA or Clemson University by car. You can also go to Clemson University by boat from here. It's only 60 miles to Helen, GA where you can raft the Chatahoochee (world class white water rafting on the Chatahoochee) , ride a zip line or enjoy Octoberfest in Helen. Tallulah Gorge is only 50 miles away where you can pan for gold, hike and ride bikes. There are 3 waterfalls you can visit at Brasstown Falls.

WE HAVE GREAT WATER! Twelve feet at the end of the dock and 25 feet deep in the middle of the cove. You can rent a boat at Gordon's Marina. We have a canoe and Kayak here for your use along with life jackets. We have seen and heard of people catching good size fish right at our dock.

Home of the 'Astonished Fish' (see photos). The first time you sink into a chair and take in the lake view you will understand. This is truly a unique property and you will be surprised at how much you relax even in the first 24 hours. Screen porch is newly done in Caribbean colors
Very peaceful setting with a good water view. Sit on the swim dock and watch the sunset. If you bring a boat you can launch about 10 minutes away and tie up to our swim dock. Enjoy the deep (25' deep in the middle of cove), clear water. A natural spring keeps our wide, deep cove flowing and clean. Large screened porch is a favorite place to eat or wake up with a cup of coffee while being mesmerized by the water. Abundant wildlife in the area including beaver and red fox and turkey, Heron and Canadian Geese.

Wooded area directly across the water is reserved as Park land so you are looking at only nature. The masonry fireplace makes it a perfect year round get away. Living Room has cathedral ceiling and the property has been newly painted inside. The Master Bedroom has a luxurious King Size Select Comfort air mattress bed with individual controls. The Guest bedroom has a new King bed. The basement sleeping area has a Queen bed There are two sleeper sofa's in the living room making it a home that can sleep at least 8. There are two full baths. There is Wireless Hi-speed internet access.

The kitchen is fully outfitted with microwave, dishwasher and icemaker. There is a gas grill on the large side deck. There is a grill near the driveway for charcoal. There are dining tables on the deck, in the screen porch & in the great room. The lower patio is covered and has seating and is decorated with handcrafted fish made by local a craftsman (snap a photo of the one you like and we can have one made for you). The gently sloped walkway from the driveway to the deck means there are zero steps or stairs to navigate entering the home, making it easily accessible even with walkers or wheelchairs. Great neighborhood for walking or bike riding with virtaully no traffic. Enjoy!
Short drive to scenic Greeneville and Ashville.
10-15 minutes to Restaurants and Shopping.
Dine and Golf at nearby Cateechee Golf Course/ Waterfall Grill

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Our Dock has ALWAYS had good boatable water at least 8 feet at the end of the dock even during the recent historic drought. Dock redone with new wood in 2016

Why the Owner Chose Hartwell, GA, USA:
Lake Hartwell has good, clean refreshing water. It is much quieter than some of the other major Georgia lakes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We thoroughly enjoy the peace and solitude of the lake whether having meals and drinks on the dock, or taking a short boat ride out to one of the undeveloped islands. The water in our part of the lake is spring fed and always feels clean and fresh.
