223 Luther Land Road: This is a beautifully built home, only 2 years old,...

223 Luther Land Road: This is a beautifully built home, only 2 years old, on a fantastic waterfront lot with Mountain views, 180 degree lake views, deep water and your own sandy beach! The current owners knew this lot was special when they first saw it and built the perfect home to compliment the many positive features and intangibles that are present. The 3 car garage and circular drive allow for plenty of family and guest parking and you're instantly struck by the panoramic and expansive blue water views. The back of the home is perfectly positioned to take in the expansive views from every room inside and out. Those views range from Northern mountain views, eastern sunrises and mile(s) long lake view south. The main level is spacious and features 2 suites, including the large owner's suite. The owners did a great job balancing the darker rustic tones of beams and hardwood floors with lighter cabinetry, countertops and trim. The kitchen has great working and storage space (don't miss the amazing pantry with cabinets and countertops to match the main kitchen) and opens perfectly to the informal/lakeside dining room and living room. It will be hard not to want to eat on the huge covered deck every night but. you most certainly can as it is protected from the rain and nicely shaded from the afternoon sun! The owners have also pre-plumbed gas and water on the deck should you want to install an outdoor kitchen in the future! The large bonus room, above the 3 car garage, provides great space for additional beds, hobby or whatever suits your needs most...there is a closet, full bath and separate entrance door from the garage so guests could use the bonus room space without accessing the main home. The lower level will spoil any short or long term guests with multiple recreation spaces, second full kitchen, 3 more bedrooms, 3 full baths and good storage. While it will be hard to keep guests away from the water, this lower level will be a ton of fun on rainy or cooler days! One thing the owners really wanted was an amazing view, but some protection from wake and boat traffic--the private beach on this property provides a safe and comfortable spot for swimming or relaxing on busier lake days. The large covered dock provides breathtaking views, deep water, boat lift and 2 jet ski ports. Beckland Estates is a boutique community that has restrictions but no HOA fee and many beautiful new homes. These caliber of waterfront lots is nearly impossible to find anymore and this home is exactly what you'd want to build (and would likely take 1.5+ years to construct). Some additional features include: natural gas heat, tankless gas water heater, multiple fireplaces inside/out, Thermador appliances and property line is at the 800'

LAKE HARTWELL SC

Lake Hartwell is a man-made reservoir bordering Georgia and South Carolina on the Savannah, Tugaloo, and Seneca Rivers. Lake Hartwell is one of the southeast’s largest and most popular recreation lakes. The lake is created by Hartwell Dam located on the Savannah River seven miles (11 km) below the point at which the Tugaloo and Seneca Rivers join to form the Savannah. 56,000-acre Lake Hartwell, is inhabited by striped and hybrid bass, largemouth, crappie, bream, and catfish and is one of the Southeast’s premier fishing destinations for professionals. Homes for sale on Lake Hartwell are some of the most expensive properties in the Upstate. 

 

All the traditional lake recreational activities can be seen and done here on Lake Hartwell: 

  • Camping. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages 9 campgrounds at Lake Hartwell with a total of 524 campsites. Many of the campgrounds include restrooms, showers, boat ramps, playgrounds, electric and water hookups, courtesy docks, group camping, and designated swimming areas.
  • Biking trail. The Corps of Engineers Lake Hartwell office partnered with the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) to build a 7.6 miles (12.2 km) multi-purpose trail at the Paynes Creek Campground area.
  • Fishing. Hartwell is home to many different types of fish including largemouth bass, bream, hybrid and striped bass, crappie, white bass, trout, and walleye.
  • Swimming. The lake is suitable for swimming but there have been over 200 deaths on the lake through the years.
  • Water sports. The Lake is a venue for a variety of sports such as tubing, water skiing, and wakeboarding.
  • Boating. Boating is a huge part of the recreation side of Lake Hartwell. There are five marinas along the lake, including Clemson Marina, Big Water Marina, Harbor Light Marina, Hartwell Marina, and Portman Marina as well as many public boat ramps. The lake also features the private Western Carolina Sailing Club that hosts an annual regatta in October to benefit Hospice of the Upstate.

LAKE JOCASSEE

Is a 7,500-acre, 300-foot deep reservoir located in northwest upstate South Carolina created by the state in partnership with Duke Power in 1973. The lake is commonly known for the clean and cold Appalachian mountain rivers that feed the lake to keep its waters cool and clear year-round. The lake is within Devils Fork State Park. There are four different smaller rivers that feed into Lake Jocassee. Similar to Lake Hartwell, as one can guess the real estate for sale on Lake Jocassee is some of the most premium property in the Upstate near Greenville / Spartanburg SC. The same fish species as in Lake Hartwell can also be found in Jocassee. 

 


LAKE KEOWEE

Also a man-made reservoir this lake was created to serve the needs of a power utility (Duke Energy) as well as public recreational purposes. It is approximately 26 miles long, 3 miles wide, with an average depth of 54 feet, and a shoreline measured at 300 miles in total and is approximately 800 feet above sea level. The lake is connected by damn to Lake Jocassee and as you can imagine shares the same recreational activities as the other two Greenville SC area lakes of Hartwell and Jocassee. Search homes for sale lake Keowee.

As with most of the lakes around the upstate, they are Indian names from the Cherokee tribe located in Oconee County.
