Incredible Lake Keowee waterfront home located in the upscale Reserve on...

Incredible Lake Keowee waterfront home located in the upscale Reserve on Lake Keowee. This 12,150+/- sq ft home has all the touches you’d expect in your dream home. Let’s start with the exterior. The landscaping has been expertly created with an eye towards year-round enjoyment. Large hardwoods have been bolstered with Japanese maples, hollies and the like. The drive is not your normal affair. It includes Indian fossil stone and is of course an Indian fossil and concrete run to a circular drive around a large planter to the huge 3 car garage (mahogany doors, epoxy floors, built ins, and a set up for washing the family pets). The entrance to the home is framed by the large mahogany front doors which bring you directly into the foyer, dining area and large rear living deck. Have we mentioned the Lake Keowee part of the lot? One of the nicest properties on Lake Keowee with a long water view large beach (another for good measure) and a gentle slope. There is a beautiful, covered dock in place in the Reserve style as well. I digress, back to the home. There are textured Indian Bluff limestone walls, Black walnut barrel ceiling, 12-foot ceilings in most spaces and a 30-foot ceiling in the great room. The great room has mahogany beams, a leather granite hearth, black walnut floors and-with all this space-still manages to keep a cozy feel. The home has an incredible flow with all the types of spaces needed including breakfast room, grilling deck, butler’s pantry, office, 2 laundry rooms, outdoor covered large whirlpool and more. The kitchen is a masterpiece with a large island work area with seating, mahogany cabinets with lit glass uppers, quartzite countertops, tumbled marble flooring, 2 Subzero refrigerators, a 6-burner Wolf dual fuel range, built in coffee maker, mixer lift, ice maker, steamer, warming drawer and two Bosch dishwashers. The butler’s pantry is a large private space with plenty of storage and includes a wine chiller. Let’s head to the master suite a huge space with a tremendous lake view, fireplace and superior lighting. The master bath – that description doesn’t do it justice – is an oasis. It has two massive closets split with a large dressing area, the bathing area has two water closets, 2 vanities, a soaking tub and a large, multi-person doorless shower. The upstairs is spacious and perfect for guests or the rest of the family and includes a large living space, study area, library and two bedrooms each with a bathroom en suite. There is also an additional half bath for easy access. Adjoining this living space is a large apartment with its own kitchen, living space, large bathroom and bedroom. There is a spiral staircase leading from the ground floor to this space along with access from the upper level so it can be cut off from the remainder of the home. The lowest level of the home is a retreat to die for. A large bar area (Viking dishwasher, beverage refrigerator, microwave and ice maker) bisects the living spaces and has a 700 bottle wine cellar beautifully separated with a mahogany glass door wall. There is a pool table/dart room, poker room, large relaxation area, workout room, sauna, steam shower, 10-person movie room, another bedroom with a bathroom ensuite. Step out to the covered deck with large built-in whirlpool, TV and sitting area all again with an eye towards the Lake Keowee view. Enjoy the outdoor shower after a day on the lake followed by some time at the firepit. If you are too tired to walk up the stairs after the long day on the lake there is an elevator. In case the lights go out there is also a generator that runs the main floor. Obviously, there is much more to see some set up a tour! All furnishings negotiable!

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.

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.
