144 N Waterside Drive N Seneca, SC 29672
Capturing the easy-breezy feelings of a favorite vacation, 144 North Waterside Drive offers a bevy of resort-style amenities: a waterfront setting that’s steps away from Lake Keowee’s shores, a lakeside pool and hot tub, and open, light-filled spaces. With six (or more) bedrooms spread across three levels—made accessible to everyone via an elevator—the residence is the perfect memory-making headquarters for generations of family and friends. The home’s exterior incorporates earth-hued North Carolina river rock that is particularly striking on the arched entry and two-story center. Inside, the great room’s lofty double row of windows and soaring stone fireplace are showstoppers. Neutral-colored shiplap—used on the ceiling here, and on walls in other rooms—lends textural interest and a relaxed lakehouse vibe. In the adjoining dining room, a statement chandelier hangs from the coffered ceiling, while an elongated bar with sink, cooler, and wine storage occupies the passage to the kitchen. Throughout the home, thoughtful design takes advantage of every architectural niche with built-in benches, shelving, or cabinetry. Fine craftsmanship and high-end finishings are on display in every direction. The bright kitchen, built around an expansive island with gather-round seating on two sides, provides chef-worthy Dacor and Miele appliances. A convenient office sits at the rear. The adjacent breakfast area accommodates a family-sized table and opens to the airy sunroom with three walls of windows and 180-degree lake views. Main-level outdoor spaces include a porch with fireplace and Eze-Breeze windows, as well as an open, multi-level deck. The master suite is a lovely place to start and end the day. Doors lead outside to the porch, and the serene en suite features marble tile floors, outsized shower, jetted tub, and double vanity. Near the three-car garage, stairs and the elevator access the upper and lower levels. Upstairs, a window-lined corner office makes for pleasant work. Two bedroom suites are separated by a center loft that overlooks the great room and lake below and is large enough for a curl-up-with-a-book sitting area. The lower level opens to a sprawling family room with fireplace and spacious bar kitchen in the corner, creating a versatile space ideal for entertaining a crowd or intimate binge-watching. To the right are two bedroom suites—one with a private side patio—and a multi-purpose room (currently used as a bunkroom) with double exterior doors. The left wing houses a lakefront room, presently outfitted as a home gym, as well as a handy mudroom and half bath that service the pool area. The park-like back yard is home to the 20x40-foot pool and hot tub, multiple terraces, fire pit, and verdant landscaping (including a hillside of brilliantly blooming azaleas in the warmer months). A paved pathway leads to the shoreline and double dock with power lifts. A sublime mix of looks and livability, 144 North Waterside Drive is located in the sought-after community of Waterside Crossing. Its amenities include a clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, multiple playgrounds, lakeside picnic pavilion, paved walking trails, and community marina. Shopping, restaurants, and healthcare are close at hand in Seneca, Clemson University is minutes away, and a drive to the vibrant city of Greenville is under an hour. *Although not included in the asking price, the home’s stylish furnishings, as well as two boats, are negotiable.

Seneca was originally founded as Seneca City, named for a Native American village in the area and the Seneca River. Seneca was situated at the intersection of the Blue Ridge Railroad and the Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line Railroad, which are now part of the Norfolk Southern Railway. Two engineers for the Air Line Railroad purchased the land from Colonel Brown of Anderson, South Carolina. The land was divided into one-mile lots stemming from a stake driven into the center of the railroad intersection, which marked the center of town. The town held an auction on August 14, 1873 and Seneca City received a charter on March 14, 1874. It wasn’t until 1908 that the town’s name was changed to Seneca.
Seneca became a prominent marketing and shipping point for cotton, and eventually, a passenger terminal, a number of hotels, and a park — now called Norton-Thompson Park — were built near the railroad tracks. Several textile mills were also erected in Seneca and most have since closed their doors.
The town saw significant growth with the construction of Lake Hartwell in 1963, Lake Keowee in 1971, and Lake Jocassee in 1974.
