Lake Keowee is a place to enjoy. Having friends and family visit is a major reason for being here. Having a home that accommodates them, more like spoils them, is part of the attraction. This home has filled that dream for years. There may be 5 bedrooms but the home sleeps well beyond that capacity. So, if you are looking for a place to create memories for extended family and friends 130 River Ridge Road might be just the home for you. Situated on a deep water cove, protected from main channel traffic with main channel access 2 lots away means no “dock rocking”. Safe swimming is an option. Learning paddle boarding before you approach “big water” and getting your sea legs on jet skis; all part of lake life. The main and patio levels mirror each other in some aspects; each boasting a large gathering room with fireplace, a full kitchen, laundry room, a half bath for common areas, three sets of French doors to a covered porch facing the lake and an additional porch for just hanging out. The porches spill out to a yard where corn hole and other games can be enjoyed. The lake is right there but if you are a pool person, there is plenty of space for that too. Lake access via the terraced yard is easy but when you decide you need a cooler on the boat the driveable path from the courtyard to just above the dock comes in handy. The home is bright and inviting. Windows galore! Immediately on the right are glass French doors to what is used as an office but makes the perfect formal dining room as well. The coffered ceiling lends a sense of casual elegance. The Great Room stretches across the home and draws you in. Anchored on one end by the fireplace and the kitchen on the other, the plan is open but defines spaces with varied ceiling heights. The kitchen bar counter is a must for hanging out with the cook, the eat-in space is just off the end of the island and opens to the screened-in porch where al fresco dining is preferred over indoors. The Matterport video walks you through these spaces as if you are in the home. Secluded at one end of the main level is the owners’ suite with a large bay window facing the lake and an oversized bathroom the hosts deserve! Entering from the garage or side porch is an entry hall complete with a nook where hooks and a long bench act as a drop zone for jackets, keys, muddy shoes, and a host of other items you prefer not taken into the living area. The laundry across the hall offers more storage and works well for the main level and bonus level clean-up. The stairs to the bonus suite are accessed in this hall. As the 5th bedroom, lucky the guests who get this room. Dedicated staircase and private bath, As you step into the kitchen there is a large pantry on the right. Stocking up so you spend more time at the lake than at the store makes lake life more enjoyable. Add to all this the fabulous amenities that come with living at The Reserve at Lake Keowee and you’ll find it hard to beat anywhere else! A light filled staircase leads to the patio level. Few lower levels offer such bright space. The coffered ceiling adds detail without being heavy. With a kitchen, laundry, and great lake access your guests may decide to invite you down for dinner! They can do their laundry and leave it how they found it if they really want to be invited back. Furnishings are negotiable for those who have an interest. The photos just begin to tell the story. Explore this home in person, hang out on the dock a bit and imagine the memories you can create starting THIS SUMMER!
