The quality of design, materials and workmanship are evident throughout this Len Talley built custom home. The extra wide nearly level concrete driveway and parking area lead to a three car garage. The brick front, cement fiber siding and composite decking offer the prospect of minimal maintenance for years to come. The serpentine concrete cart pathway leads to a 2-slip covered dock and deck located on over a 100 feet of crystal clear water. Crown molding, solid 6-panel doors, hardwood floors, 9+ ceilings and other custom finishes are further evidence of the quality throughout this beautiful Keowee Key waterfront home. Beautiful oak hardwood covers the living room, dining room and kitchen floors. French glass doors flanked by windows and with transoms bath the living room with daylight and open on to the inviting screened porch. The fireplace with its eye catching mantel and granite surround sits between white custom cabinetry and shelves. Graceful white columns lead into the dining room graced by a bay window and tray ceiling. The well designed kitchen features custom oak cabinetry, Corian countertops and tiled backsplash and a dining bay with sliding glass doors that open on to the deck overlooking beautiful Lake Keowee. The master bedroom suite is entered through double doors for added privacy. Access to the deck outside is through French doors flanked by windows with transoms to allow in more light. Crown moldings and the tray ceiling with built in lighting complete this restful setting. His-and-her walk-in closets are nestled between the sleeping and the fully equipped master bath. Separate marble topped vanities in the bathroom provide each person with their own space. Walk-in shower and jetted tub complete this spacious master bathroom. A large laundry room with a stainless steel sink, two guest bedrooms and a guest bath complete the main level living area of this wonderful Lake Keowee home. The center piece of the lower level is a multi-purpose recreation room over 26 feet long with a fireplace, wet bar, bay window and French glass doors opening on to the lower deck. Adjoining the rec room is a separate room set aside for exercise or games and yet another room is perfect for crafts. The large office with custom built desk top, shelving and file drawers is perfect for the quiet pursuit of business. An additional 4th bedroom and bath round out this well thought out walk out lower level. And of course there is the much desired unfinished but climate controlled area for storing those seldom used things. Seller is SC licensed Realtor
