Lake Keowee and the Blue Ridge Mountains offer a serene backdrop for this outstanding home built in 2013 by Pyramid Construction. Featuring five bedrooms and five and a half baths, it was thoughtfully designed by acclaimed architect Lew Oliver and decorated by Fowler Interiors. The exterior is striking but subtle, matching the character of its natural surroundings. Not that you’d ever grow tired of the view, but 135 Village Point Drive has distinctive outdoor spaces on three different levels—each one large enough for entertaining but comfortable and intimate. The front and lower porch are appointed with bluestone floors, and the ground level has an outdoor kitchen ready for your housewarming celebration. Just steps away from the marina, the lake, and the pools, the location and the view are more than enough to make this property memorable, but the interior is also extraordinary. You’ll enjoy ambient light, ample room, and open space in this expansive home, but you’ll also find peaceful alcoves on each floor. Cozy up to the stone fireplace or have a seat by the prominent kitchen island, which is bound to become a gathering spot as the family chef works. The kitchen has top-rated appliances including a two-door stainless steel refrigerator and a wine refrigerator. There are den areas and wet bars on two levels. The master bedroom on the main floor opens to the screened in porch and the custom closets are more than big: You’ll have not only storage, but also a system of organization, and the bathrooms will provide the repose of a spa in the comfort of your own home. Other features include a laundry on main level, walk-in storage that includes a second washer/dryer in the basement, and Trex® decking. The Reserve at Lake Keowee, with its world-class amenities, juxtaposes the feel of a luxury resort and a rustic retreat. Thirty miles of unspoiled shoreline distinguish this 3,900-acre private community, along with a 200-slip marina, a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, a tennis center, fitness facilities, Founders Hall, a market, post office, fine dining at the clubhouse, multiple pools, hiking trails, and the welcoming Great Lawn for outdoor events. The quiet, village-like atmosphere represents the essence of intelligent development and community, and the public spaces are meticulously maintained. Facing south, this elegant and inviting property is the ideal location for family and friends: a retreat, and a home like no other. Schedule an appointment to experience it today, and you could have a remarkable view of this year’s Fourth of July fireworks.
