Lakefront. Private Wooded Lot. Custom Renovations. These three phrases are just the beginning of what 15 Cats Paw Court in the exclusive gated community of Keowee Key has to offer. With glimpses of the mountains as you make the drive home, you will feel your stress melting away. Passing through the guard gate you will wind your way to the home, which is tucked away on .62 acres of private, wooded lot with 200 feet of private, lake front property. No detail has been overlooked on this home-starting on the exterior with the expanded driveway for parking, flower beds, custom garage doors, and golf cart path to the lake. The natural stone stairs are flanked by custom wrought iron railings that match the inlay on the custom double front doors. The double front doors lead into a grand open Great Room complete with vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting, refinished hardwood floors, and a floor to ceiling stacked stone wood burning fireplace flanked by windows overlooking the wooded yard and lake. The Great Room opens to the large Keeping Room which feeds into the formal dining room with plenty of seating for family and friends. The heart of the home is the Kitchen and this Chef’s kitchen does not disappoint; beginning with the giant island that easily seats five and provides the perfect serving surface. The kitchen boasts quartz countertops, endless cabinets, custom tile backsplash, double ovens and a cooktop with professional grade Broan Elite Retractable hood vent. The stainless kitchen appliances convey with the sale of the home! Off the kitchen is a large pantry, half bath with custom stained-glass window, and giant walk-in laundry/mudroom with access to the garage and the front of the home. This room boasts a sink and plenty of counter and cabinet space along with deck access. The washer, dryer and refrigerator in this room all convey in the sale. This is the perfect room when you are wet from the lake or coming in from school and need a drop zone for all those backpacks and sports gear! Off the other side of the kitchen is the spacious breakfast area that open to the large sunroom. This room full of windows gives you beautiful view of the lake. On the other side of the home you will find a guest room that opens to a shared hall bath. Down the hall is the Master Retreat that not only overlooks the lake but has its own access to the deck overlooking the water. The Master Bath features the walk-in closet, dual vanities, deep jacuzzi tub with heat and tile and glass surround shower. Both bedrooms feature specialty fans with retractable blades. The lower level offers immense flexibility with custom touches throughout, staring with the Carolina Hickory floors throughout the main space. The main living space features another stacked stone fireplace, and opens to the kitchen that boasts quartz countertops, sink, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave-all that convey in the sale. Off one side of the Living Room, you will find two giant bedrooms. On the other side there are two flex spaces that could serve all of your needs! There is a full bath with tile surround shower and tile floor, large theater room, hall bath, and private office. There is outdoor access from this area and the living room area. This entire downstairs area is perfect for an in-law suite, out of own guests, or college kids home for the summer! The outdoor living space is the gem of this home and it does not disappoint! There are decks on the top and bottom floor, both that rum the length of the home. As you head towards the lake you will follow the path the sellers put in and find yourself on a private dock.
