There are few places in the world that rival the beauty and exclusivity of Lake Jocassee. Located in the Jocassee Gorges, this pristine lakefront setting provides spectacular views, crystal clear water, and endless outdoor activity. To date, there are still only 50+/- homes on the entire shoreline of Lake Jocassee. Much like 187 Fisher Knob, many of these homes have never been sold as they have been family owned for generations. Perfectly situated on a generous 1.72 acre property, with room for a second/guest home, 187 Fisher Knob is a beautiful and comfortable retreat surrounded by approximately 450' of pristine shoreline. The views from all the living areas, spacious deck and cozy screened porch are simply breathtaking. The two story windows in the living room frame those vistas and allow natural light in throughout the day. The living space is open, comfortable, and just the right size for a cozy weekend getaway or a large family gathering. The kitchen is beautifully updated with granite countertops and stainless appliances. The home is well built but the engineering didn't stop there. The owners have installed a tram system that allows you to get from the parking area to the home without going up or down a step. There's a main floor master suite for convenience as well. The same tram will also take you right down the lakefront deck and covered dock...no more carrying heavy bags and coolers up and down steps! In addition to the master suite, there are multiple other sleeping areas including 2 other guest suites, bunk beds and a 3rd floor loft accessed by wooden spiral staircase. The wood ceilings and stone fireplace are the perfect rustic accents to the hardwood trees, Oconee Bell and mountain laurel that surround the exterior. Simply stated, there's no way to not be relaxed when you arrive and stay here. There are multiple access points for a potential second home on this property and possible second dock if buyer wanted to subdivide the property. This property can also be rented short term should you want to generate income and have personal use.
