From its ivy-strewn stone entrance to its gently sloping shoreline, this offering is exquisite in every detail. The thoughtfully designed 6,200+ square foot Resort Custom Home is perfectly situated on one of the premier lots within the Vineyards (once owned by the Cliffs’ former CEO). Extraordinarily level, the landscape is planted with a profusion of native flowering shrubs and overhung by mature trees, which frame expansive views of lake, state park and golf course, while clever placement ensures unmatched privacy on all sides. Beyond the impressive stone entry arch lies a breezy and invitingly open floor plan, anchored by a Great Room with vaulted reclaimed wood ceiling, and fireplace built of weight stone. The pocket glass wall opens to a generous covered porch with stone floor, massive fireplace with hand-hewn beam mantel, Wolf grilling station, outdoor dining area and phantom screens, overlooking lawn and lake. The kitchen is a marvelous mélange of function and style, with Wolf gas range, oversized electric oven, second wall-oven with microwave, two dishwashers (with a third at lake level), and Sub-Zero refrigerator. Customized fittings include open shelving, specialized cupboards and drawers, a Shaker-style range surround, commercial faucet. and rope-hung chandelier above a substantial granite island, seating six. A capacious butler’s pantry with laundry facilities, dining bar and drinks station with wine chiller enhance the kitchen area, while sliding doors to the outdoor dining area further extend the space. Stone columns, engineered hickory flooring, beam accents and designer fixtures handsomely unify principal rooms, beyond which lie private sanctums: a home office and master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, panoramic lake views and direct porch access. With double vanities, an MTI luxury soaking tub, walk-in tiled shower and well-appointed master closet with folding island, the master en suite is a true retreat. Also at this level, enjoy direct access to the three-car garage, which shares a discreet hallway with the powder room, with its schoolroom fixture and shallow vessel sink. Above the garage, a generous guest suite includes en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. At lake level, stained concrete flooring is both practical and eye-catching, and is complemented by sliding carriage doors and barn siding accents in the large bar area. A sitting room with covered porch and yard access, gaming nook and home theater with remote-controlled black-out blinds and cinema flooring and lighting, offer up a host of entertainment options, from sedate games of chess to rousing live sporting events on the large screen. Three bedrooms at this level enjoy lake views; two have en suite bathrooms, and the bunk room is adjacent to another full bath. A finished room and numerous finished closets offer storage, overflow sleeping, home gym or craft room options. The concrete-floored lake entry room, with its secondary laundry facilities, numerous hooks and cubbies, outdoor shower and commercial ice machine, is the perfect transitional space between the indoors and great outdoors. Great it truly is, with a level yard, oversized firepit, and covered dock with lift, within the desirable “bowl” area of North Lake Keowee, in The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards. The setting is a natural paradise, the home a restful haven.
