This Yoderbuilt custom home has been well loved and is on the market for the first time! The current owners chose this beautiful waterfront lot for its balance of view and protection while offering a perfectly gentle slope from road to water. Enjoy the open water views across the north channel of Lake Keowee without sacrificing the luxury of safe swimming and relaxing at your private covered dock. This home is just the right size to accommodate friends and family without overwhelming empty nester owners. There's approximately 3700 finished square feet on two levels and an amazing 1350+/- heated and cooled storage and workshop space---and that doesn't include the 3 car garage! The main level is open with multiple living spaces indoors and out. Entertaining guests is effortless as the living, informal dining, kitchen, keeping room and deck space all flow perfectly together. There's also a formal dining room for special occasions. The main level features 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths including the lakeside owner's suite. The second guest bedroom and bath can be used as a main level office/den or perfect for guests that prefer to not navigate stairs. There are 2 more guest bedrooms, with beautiful views, on the lower level along with a rec room. The workshop has double doors to the lakeside making it easy to bring things in and out...there's plenty of room to store a golf cart, yard tools, lake toys etc in this shop space as it measures 18'6"X34'. If you preferred to have another lakeside suite instead of a shop this could be finished into a beautiful guest suite. The current owners wanted to make sure they had plenty of storage in this home and have done exactly that with 2 large heated/cooled areas with shelving galore! The slope to the lake is very gentle and there's a concrete path in place to take you right down to the waterfront. The 24X28 dock sits in deep water and already has a boat lift in place to fit a pontoon or V-hull boat. There are steps built into the sea wall making access easy for our 4 legged friends that love to swim. The lakeside faces east allowing for cool Summer afternoons, especially on the covered back deck or lower level patio. This is a well built, well loved and low maintenance home. The main level HVAC was replaced in 2017/2018 and the current owner's power bills average less than $150/month. The propane gas powers the furnace, fireplace and kitchen range. Wynward Pointe is a beautiful and established community located at the base of North Lake Keowee and close to both Seneca and Clemson. **AGENTS AND BUYERS** Owners are building a home that is estimated to be completed February 2020.
