Home inspection and recent repairs have been completed and noted in home inspection and seller’s disclosure. Please see supplements and review Keowee Key fees. This home is the perfect canvas to make your own with your choice of upgrades. Situated in a cul-de-sac, a concrete drive leads you to the front door of this quiet escape, and continues around the side of the home to the back patio. The front door features a foyer entrance with two storage closets, and wood tile floor appearance. Immediately upon entrance you will be greeted by natural lighting, lake views, and main living, open-space concept floor plan with vaulted ceilings. The main-level living/dining combination features floor-to-ceiling, wall-length windowpanes covering the expanse of the lake side living room wall; making the area bright, and open. The living/dining area also hosts gorgeous wood beam accents on the vaulted ceiling, and an entrance/exit to the back deck overlooking the lake. The kitchen offers abundant cabinetry, and additional pantry. Kitchen appliances currently include a dishwasher, refrigerator, stove top with griddle, built-in microwave, wall oven, and ice maker. You will fall in love with the unique loft feature above the kitchen; making use of the vaulted ceiling space, and allowing for additional sleeping or storage. The main-level features 2 bedrooms. One on the right side of the living room with adjacent jack-n-jill bath. The bathroom features a sink and linen closet. A separate section with whirlpool tub, and commode doubles as the laundry room with washer, and dryer. The main-level master suite, located on the left side of the living room, hosts an ensuite full bath with a skylight, welcoming natural light into the room, multiple closet spaces, a single sink granite vanity with built in cabinets/drawers, and a separate room with walk-in shower and commode for added privacy. Both main-level bedrooms include private entrance/exits to decks overlooking the lake. A carpeted 2-case stairwell beside the master suite leads to the lower-level. Currently there is no HVAC in the basement. A storage closet is located at the bottom of the first staircase currently housing a freezer, but could be remodeled for your own purpose. A few more stairs lead you to the lower-level spacious main living area. The lower level offers multiple storage closet options, some of which could be remodeled or finished for your own personal purpose. The hallway on the left side of the living space leads to a newly remodeled corner bedroom overlooking the lake, and a large full-size bath at the end of the hall, complete with a double sink vanity. An additional bedroom with lake view is located on the right side of the living space. The main lower-level area also offers an entrance/exit to the lower-level outdoor patio overlooking the lake, complete with a hanging swing. Cascading wood stairs lead from the back patio/deck area to an entertaining deck that overlooks the lake shore, and continues to your private single-slip covered dock with boat lift, and rip rap shoreline. The property offers power to the dock. Another notable landscape feature is the natural rock barrier wall that adds interesting landscape charm to the front of this home. If you are looking for a peaceful escape in a quiet cove on Lake Keowee this is your spot.
