INCREDIBLE LAKE, SUNSET AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS. This beautifully updated home is located about as close to Seneca, Clemson and Greenville as you can be and still be on Lake Keowee. The original owners wisely chose this 1.09 acre lot and built the home as close to the shoreline as possible to maximize views and privacy (note the location relative to each neighbor in the aerial photo). You can sit on the back deck every evening and soak up the incredible sunsets while listening to the soothing sound of your own waterfall. Guests will be wowed immediately upon entry as the tall vaulted ceiling and open floor plan do not distract your eye from the oversized glass windows that perfectly frame the 2+ mile lake views. Included in those views are nearly a dozen islands and mountain views to the N/NW. The spacious main level is over 3100 square feet allowing for wonderful living and entertaining space. The kitchen features a huge prep island, with bar seating, Dacor natural gas range, 2 dishwashers, beverage cooler, and an oversized informal dining area that seats up to 14 people. The lower level deck has tons of room for grills but there's also a built in BBQ just off the kitchen so you don't have to go up and down stairs to grill and entertain. Speaking of stairs, you can avoid them anytime you want by taking the home elevator. For more formal settings, or if you have a large family, you can also use the dining area that adjoins the living room. The living room is perfectly sized and highlighted by the stacked stone fireplace and built-ins that go to the ceiling. There are so many wonderful places to relax or gather in this home but my favorite has to be the sunroom. The landscape is ever changing from the morning/afternoon sparkle of the water, watching weather come and go, and the incredible sunsets you will constantly be reminded of how great life is at the lake. There are two bedrooms and two full baths on the main level. The owner's suite is on the lakeside and has it's own private balcony. The updated bathroom features an oversized tile shower with additional steam shower. The spacious flow of the two vanities and elegant garden tub highlight thoughtful execution. The large walk in closet is sure to please as well. The second main level bedroom is mostly used as an office but has a built in murphy bed to sleep more guests when needed. The walk out lower level provides great guest space, recreation, storage, views, 2nd kitchen and the owner's favorite room, the craft room! A large recreation room with wet bar provides great relaxing space just off the huge deck and lends privacy between the 2 guest bedrooms and 2 full baths downstairs. There's also 2 more built in trundle beds that are the grandkid's favorite place to sleep downstairs. The original kitchen cabinets and appliances have been re-purposed for a second kitchen that shares space with the craft room. This craft room has a huge island that gives you great work space and tons of storage. There's additional storage throughout the room that you have to see to believe! Make sure you don't miss the EZ Breeze screened porch and walk in wine cellar on the bottom right of the home--what a quiet and calm place for owners or guests to relax. The lake can be accessed from the cart path that starts at the motor court of the driveway or by just a few steps off the lower level deck. The full size dock is in deep water and includes the boat lift. This home has so many custom/efficient features and built in storage space from the custom pantry, built in china cabinets, murphy beds, craft room storage, garage workshop and more. The current owners installed a new septic drain field and 4 HVAC units (2018) during ownership. From the built in hot tub, multiple decks/balconies, gazebo and dock there are so many great places to enjoy throughout the 4 seasons here at Lake Keowee. This is a special home and view.

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.
