Property Description

This stunning, custom built, luxury, lake Keowee home is the perfect getaway that you have been searching for. At the southern tip of the lake, owners get to live only minutes from shopping, grocery stores and hospitals while still being in an exclusive, gated community that is tucked away for owner privacy. Sitting on the top of The Ridge at Lake Keowee, nestled within the gates of the treasured Backwater Landing, owners get to enjoy the amenities of an established community with the benefits of low maintenance living and luxury, custom, new construction and finishings. This home has every upscale feature you can imagine as well as the best waterfront views in the community. The open floor plan is welcoming for your guests and perfect for entertaining. Enjoy the expansive kitchen island, the dining area and covered porch while overlooking the gorgeous, emerald waters of Lake Keowee. The home is being built as a spec with a basement foundation. The basement will be unfinished. However, buyers may choose to upgrade to a finished or partially finished basement. The bonus room above the garage is not to be finished. However, buyers may also elect to upgrade and have that room finished as well. This home will have a vaulted ceiling in the main living area and stunning lake views. The large master bedroom will have a dressing room, spacious walk-in closet, luxurious shower and dual sinks. The study on the main level can also be used as a second bedroom for your guests. The large bonus room could be finished to be quite the space for movie nights and could qualify as a third bedroom. There is ample storage space and a two car, attached garage. The regime fee is $566 a month for two people and includes water, sewer, trash, landscaping and much more. This amenity rich community was developed with vacationers and part-timers in mind. The septic permit is for a one bedroom home and/or two full time residents. However, it also serves as a perfect place to live full-time or even retire. The majority makeup of the community is second homeowners or couples living fulltime. The community is not designed for fulltime families with children. However, it is the ideal place for family gatherings and family visitors. The Ridge at Lake Keowee is not a fifty five and up community. So, anyone looking for a lake getaway or to downsize without losing the lake lifestyle you may be accustomed to would be ideal owners. There are walking trails, boardwalks, a waterfront lodge, waterfront pool, beach area, fitness center, library, a billiards room and a marina. This home will have an available boat slip on a new community dock that is to be built. The developer anticipates permitting very soon and completion prior to the Spring. The annual slip fee is $2,300. If you have guests arrive by boat, they can purchase weekend tie up rights or even nightly access. No rentals allowed less than a 12 month term. A modified tax structure adds to the savings of this remarkable Lake Keowee buy. The images are of the model, the foundation of #215 and samples of the vaulted ceiling in another unit that is under contract. More images will come as the home reaches completion. If you are looking to live a relaxing lake life with every creature comfort, look no further.
