The Master Bedroom Suite offers exceptional privacy, spaciousness, enviable closet space, and wonderful front views of the lake. The 3-season screened-in porch is a marvelous feature. It opens onto a deck that extends across most of the back of the house, facing the lake with the gas grill steps from the kitchen door. The upstairs is served by a wide staircase and the elevator. The rooms are huge and include a sitting area facing the lake and overlooking the Great Room below. There are two en-suite bedrooms with large walk-in closets and a bonus room above the 3-car garage below. There is a 3rd full bath. The terrace level is fabulous. It is a separate living space which would easily accommodate a family member(s) who could live in the house, and yet have a level of independence since everything needed is right there. A fireplace in the sitting room, a spacious bedroom with a full bath, a game or exercise room, kitchenette, the hobby room could serve as another bedroom, a second laundry facility, a second full bathroom, and the elevator, make it absolutely ideal. There is ample storage space. The new roof was installed in early 2019 and has a transferrable warranty. There is a US Tec integrated system throughout the house, with an 8-port control panel located in the main level closet. A music speaker system and intercom are throughout the house. The many architectural details combine with the low-maintenance exterior add to this home's appeal. The front porches are simply beautiful and are accessible from the main and upstairs levels.

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.
