Overlooking the 12th green of The Reserve at Lake Keowee’s Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, 140 Long Ridge Road is the epitome of mountain lake style. Custom designed by Garrell Associates, the home strikes the perfect balance of offering golf course views while affording ultimate privacy. The 1.27-acre site is as beautifully groomed as the course, with lofty pines providing a self-perpetuating blanket of mulch that abuts areas of lush lawn. Scattered magnolias give the perfect portion of Southern charm. The home’s stone and shingle-siding exterior blends flawlessly into this setting. Inside, a great room welcomes with numerous features of note: commanding stone fireplace, high-reaching windows, and wood-planked cathedral ceiling with rustic gable beams. The lovely kitchen, displaying white stained cabinetry juxtaposed against an embellished, celery ivory glazed island and range hood, is the center point between the adjacent bay-windowed breakfast room and a board and batten walled wood-paneled keeping room with fireplace. A beverage bar with copper sink occupies one corner. Exterior doors open to a screened porch with built-in grill and an elegantly curved rear deck. Near the garage entrance, a mud room includes a convenient, locker-style storage bench and generous laundry with sink and extensive cabinetry. The main-level master, accented with a tray ceiling and golf course views, accesses the rear deck. A graceful, barrel-vaulted ceiling overhangs the sublimely tranquil en-suite bath, which incorporates both his and hers vanities and closets, center-set jetted tub, and large double shower. The residence has four additional bedrooms plus a bunk room, two on the main level and two on the lower (which are joined by a Jack-and-Jill bath). A dramatic bar of reclaimed wood, wrapped around a kitchenette with unique pebble backsplash, sits at the base of stairs to the lower level. A family room with fireplace, together with a connected, expansive, and window-lined social/game open area, creates space for gatherings and games. Rubber flooring and a mirrored wall equip an exercise room that is tucked into one side of the lower level. Abundant storage is found in both finished and unfinished areas. Outside, a rear covered terrace, and, beyond, a stone fire pit with bench seating, furnish a natural zone for entertaining. This thoughtfully designed and masterfully crafted home is sure to provide years of relaxing enjoyment. It is located in The Reserve at Lake Keowee, a luxury, gated golf and lake community with a marina, clubhouse with fine and casual dining, village center, pool complex, and numerous other amenities.

Lifestyle and Attractions

Lake Keowee is a 18,372-acre man-made lake situated in Upstate South Carolina. It was created by Duke Energy as a power utility and recreational destination in 1971. The lake collects water from the Keowee and Little Rivers, and the water is used to cool Duke Energy’s nuclear reactors and generate hydroelectric power. The water in Lake Keowee is known for its purity and cleanliness. There are a number of residential communities and small towns surrounding Lake Keowee, including Seneca, Keowee Plantation, Fairview, White Harbor, Salem, Keowee Key, Six Mile, Newry, and more.

Lake Keowee is situated approximately 800 feet above sea level, providing pristine views of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. This is an excellent location for those who appreciate both the mountains and lakeside living. Lake Keowee features over 300 miles of shoreline, stretching 23 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest point. The lake is a popular destination for fishing, boating, swimming, sailing, kayaking, and other water sports. There are several parks dotting the perimeter of the lake, where residents and visitors may access the sparkling blue waters of Lake Keowee. Parks include South Cove County Park, Bayshore Lakeside Park, High Falls County Park, Mile Creek Park, and several other smaller parks.

History

The word “Keowee” is roughly translated to a Cherokee name meaning “the place of the mulberries.” Before Europeans settled in North America, Cherokee Native Americans lived in the area and called the settlement “Keowee Town,” which was located along what they called the Keowee River. In 1753, settlers built Fort Prince George across the river, and the Indian Removal Act of 1830 forced the Cherokee out of the region.

 

In 1963, the South Carolina Land & Timber firm began purchasing land along the river in order to acquire, hold, and develop land and timber properties. Duke Power Company then purchased 83,400 acres from the Singer Corporation and various private landowners. In the mid-1960s, Duke began making plans to supply the southeastern US with greater electricity through a reservoir project. In 1965, Duke Energy announced plans to begin the Keowee-Toxaway project, which would cost an estimated $700 million. As construction began, archaeologists from the University of South Carolina discovered thousands of artifacts, including pottery and human and animal remains, during the excavation of the Cherokee settlement. The demolition and building project took several years to complete, and the initial transfer of water and commercial operation began in December 1973.
