This custom lakefront home, with superior craftsmanship from Jeff Holder Builders, is located within the Founders section of the spectacular Reserve at Lake Keowee. Ideally situated in a private cul-de-sac on .85 acres, it offers both seclusion and convenient proximity to hiking trails, conservation lands, and Turkey Ridge Park. Spacious rooms and extensive outdoor decking and porches have been brilliantly designed to maximize your view of the distant mountains, a protected island to the west, and of course, the sparkling open water. The home boats 5,460 finished square feet, along with another 931 sf of partially finished space—and 2,471 sf of porch and deck space! The exterior features a thoughtful blend of natural stacked stone, board and batten, maintenance free-hardie board siding and solid rough sawn beams. Also a fire resistant tile roof. The nine-foot solid wood entry door with sidelights and transom sets the tone of a welcoming mountain retreat as you step into a vaulted great room and an expansive open floor plan. Hickory flooring throughout the main level contrasts beautifully with massive columns that make the space distinctive. The great room features a wood-burning fireplace, a built-in entertainment center, striking woodwork, ample cabinetry, and expertly crafted windows to display the view beyond them. The chef’s kitchen is complete with oversized custom knotty Alder cabinets, Wolf double ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a GE Profile Induction range. The amount of rich looking wood gives the room a hint of a midcentury feel, but this noteworthy kitchen is both inviting and a practical workspace for the serious chef or entertainer. Close by is a dream pantry—massive in size, with a variety of built-in solid Alder shelving, plus a full-size freezer. Just off the kitchen is a vaulted screened porch with a stacked stone fireplace and a grilling area perfect for fall football games. The large dining area is well positioned between the great room and the kitchen with access to both the sun deck and porch. The master suite on the main level has its own private “sleeping porch,” plus a separate reading or yoga room, and there is an office/second bedroom on the main level with a full bath, convenient to the master. The home has a generously sized three-car garage, and the huge bonus room above it would be perfect for an exercise room or another bedroom. The home has two private ensuites on the lower level. The family room there has a coffered ceiling, a fireplace, a wet bar, and appliances, making it already suited for your first guests. The large lower-level deck is prewired for a hot tub and/or outdoor shower. It leads to a landscaped path with boulder steps and onto a Reserve standard custom dock with a boat lift and EZ-step ladder. The shoreline features 233 feet of rip-rapped frontage. Other features include a whole house generator, solid IPE wood decking and porches, concrete shingle roof tiles, a central vacuum system, and a security system. The Reserve at Lake Keowee is a master-planned community that features over $100 million in amenities including a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, a lakeside resort-style pool and cabanas, and a marina offering both slips and boat rentals. Premier membership ($72,000) is required with purchase.
