164 Ridge Top Lane Salem, SC 29676
Welcome to 164 Ridge Top Lane. A cedar siding exterior and natural stone wrap this custom home built by Resort Concepts with the intent of blending with the natural landscape surrounding the Falls Creek Section of The Cliffs at Keowee Falls. Elevated and long-range views of shimmering lake Keowee are what catch your eye when you enter this newly renovated home. A unique combination of accents giving both qualities of an elevated lake and mountain retreat. Tucked away at the end of a culdesac providing a true sense of privacy while being conveniently located (walking distance or short golf cart ride) to the world class amenities found at Keowee Falls. A well appointed gourmet kitchen with a Wolf gas range and double oven, a custom-paneled refrigerator and dishwasher, and a large custom built island flows seamlessly into the vaulted great room with a large inviting stone fireplace. Effortless hosting with this open floorplan concept that centers around the seamless indoor/outdoor living provided by the large pocket doors that lead to an expansive covered porch with wood burning fireplace, custom build-in gas grill, phantom screens, and views galore! No convenience overlooked with a newly installed Sub Zero wine cooler with two beverage drawers built into the wall adjacent to the kitchen and living room. An impressive owners suite with vaulted ceiling and dramatic lake views is located on the main floor and provides direct access to the large screened in porch. Newly remodeled master bath includes double vanities, a large tiled shower and soaking tub. An expansive staircase leads to an inviting lower level game room/media room with bar, two large guest bedrooms (one configured as a cozy 4 bed bunkroom), and a large office/den with dramatic views of the lake that could be turned into a 4th bedroom easily if needed. Large sliding doors open to a flagstone patio, beautiful stone arches, and a relaxed backyard with large firepit overlooking the lake. A meandering path leads directly down to the shoreline where owners can relax, fish, and launch a canoe/kayak in the pristine water of lake Keowee. This rare opportunity to enjoy the Lake Keowee lifestyle here at The Cliffs THIS spring/summer will most certainly not last long.
