Welcome to this opulent jewel of a home, boasting lake and mountain views, while surrounded by resort-style worthy gardens. This property features some of the most exquisite landscaping on Lake Keowee, including plentiful flowers, mature bushes, and multiple sparkling water features. Upon your arrival, you'll be greeted by a spacious driveway, three car garage, and an additional parking, perfect for welcoming guests and friends. Entering the home, you'll be captivated by the impressive castle-like doors. With a mere touch, these doors swing open effortlessly, inviting you into a sumptuous space with European columns, grand light fixtures, and a winding staircase lined with a curving stone wall. To the left of the entrance, a cozy office/library awaits, boasting hardwood flooring, an apron ceiling, and stylish touches like a sliding ladder lining the bookshelves. On the opposite side, a formal dining area seamlessly flows into the impressive great room, complete with glass doors that lead to the expansive upper-level deck. Step onto this sweeping deck (which features phantom screens that can be raised or lowered to your liking) and enjoy breathtaking views of the lake and nearby mountains. The kitchen is a true haven for any chef, with custom built cream colored cabinetry, built-in appliances, a gas cooktop, island with barstools and a custom wood-paneled fridge and freezer. Connected to the kitchen is a second dining area framed by expansive windows, offering incredible lake views. Adjacent to the kitchen is a warm reception salon with a stone fireplace, providing the perfect space for mingling with guests after a dinner party. Tucked smartly off of the kitchen, you'll discover a convenient mail/desk nook, a side screened-in porch, and the garage, which offers ample storage space and a workbench with sink. On the opposing wing of the home, you'll find the impressive main-level master suite. This luxury suite has high ceilings, plush carpeting and a private sitting parlour that looks out over the lake and mountains. The spa-like master bathroom features dual vanities, a deep soaking tub with jets, separate water closet, and a walk-in tiled shower with a built-in bench. This spacious bathroom conveniently connects to a powder room and an elongated walk-in closet, which leads directly to the laundry room for added functionality. Descend the charming swirling staircase to the lower terrace level, and you'll find the ultimate entertainment hub. This amenity-rich area features a pool table and game room space, a long sleek bar with stools, a secondary kitchen with a refrigerator and dishwasher, and a wine cellar with beautiful curling iron gates reminiscent of Italy. The cozy media room with an adjacent double-sided fireplace completes this space. This level also features four guest rooms, two with private full baths and two sharing a "jack-and-jill" style full bathroom. Step outside into the backyard oasis and you'll be transported to paradise. Equipped with an outdoor kitchen with built-in grill, stone fire pit, built-in hot tub, outdoor shower, and additional stone patio near the lake's edge, you'll be wowed by the terraced stone walkways, multiple waterfalls, lush florals, and ferns. Along the winding paths, you'll discover charming story-book-like wooden doors, which reveal built-in storage for firewood and equipment. A private boathouse with a lift, sun deck, and two swim ladders provide easy access to the lake. Enjoy a short boat ride to nearby lakeside restaurants like The Lighthouse, and take advantage of the convenience of nearby marinas for refueling your boat. This palatial home and backyard sanctuary is truly a feast for the eyes, and experiencing it in person is a must. Schedule your tour today!
