This captivating waterfront home in The Reserve at Lake Keowee is enviably placed on a gently inclined point lot within a peaceful cove of the lake. A pristine island punctuates the lakescape, offering protection from the main channel, without impeding breathtaking views of the water and surrounding mountains. It is an easy walk from the lower level out to your beautifully maintained dock. Almost 5,000 square feet of French Provincial architecture is surrounded by mature and indigenous landscaping, and incorporates five generous bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, three vehicle garage, and numerous options for living and entertaining. The low-maintenance exterior is charmingly turreted and infused with rough-cut stone. Lake views are plentifully from every room of the house; principally, from the open main level, where they’re framed by window-walls and soaring, heavily beamed ceilings above hardwood flooring. The well-appointed kitchen offers a farmhouse apron sink, Jennair wall ovens, a warming drawer, beverage station with wine chiller, and 6-burner gas range within a beautiful stone arch. The oversized granite island lies just steps from a screened porch with built-in gas grill and fireplace is but one of several dining options. The wood-lined ceiling of the great room crowns a spacious yet comfortable seating area, with inviting access to the lake level, and to dining and outdoor rooms. You can enjoy the beauty of the lake from the large decks on both upper and lower levels. The master suite is conveniently located on the main living level and enjoys lake views from every window. Its bathroom is outfitted with a garden soaking tub with stone surround, and a travertine shower, flanked by porcelain vessel sinks. The main level study has been converted to a second bedroom with a full bath for added convenience for family and guests. The bookshelves and views of the lake remain unchanged. An open staircase descends from the great room to lake level. The new homeowners added a fresh coat of paint and new luxury manufactured wood floor throughout the open living area on this floor. 11-foot ceilings and abounding water views lend a bright airiness to the media room, with its gas-log fireplace and proximity to the magnificent, stone-arched wine cellar. A bowed wet bar with dishwasher serves both indoor and outdoor areas, which include a hot tub at the lower patio, where privacy and tranquility await. Also located at this level are a second master suite, another oversize bedroom with bath, a nifty 4-bed bunk room with steps. There is also an extra room with a daybed that could be used as an office or workout space. Sleeping areas are carpeted at this level, the media room, bar and tasting areas have new luxury manufactured wood floor. The wine cellar has leathered concrete flooring. Access to the crystalline waters of Lake Keowee is level and inviting, via a steppingstone path to the covered dock with boat lift and extended deck. Home comfort compliments the private natural beauty in this waterfront gem. Furnishings are available for purchase.
