1.2 miles from Lake Hartwell
Enjoy 2 lakefront acres, fenced, gated & wooded, on a long driveway for the ultimate private lake retreat.
Offering 3 levels of open concept living with lots of natural light & woodwork, the home is spacious & comfortable in & out with 2 family rooms, 2 large decks & a cozy screen porch. Stroll to the private dock with lights, electricity & stairs into deep water; fish, swim, sunbathe or sit in the shade! Piped gas grill, ping pong, Roku TVs, kayaks, paddle boat, baby & Fido gear-ask me!
Beds: 3 Kings, 1 Queen, 4 Twin beds plus a crib; 2 Master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms & bedrooms on all 3 levels. There is a bathroom on all 3 levels with a tub/shower combination.
The loft has lovely tree-top views out a wall of windows that open to create a lovely breeze - it's like sleeping in the treetops; enjoy the view from a Queen canopy bed. The loft level master bedroom with ensuite bath has gated stairs to help prevent little ones from climbing up the stairs. The main level has 2 bedrooms - one is a King with jack & jill bathroom to hall. The 2nd level also has a bedroom with 2 twin beds (one is a trundle) and crib plus changing table, pack & play, potty seat and convertible high chair/booster (for baby & toddler). Also on the main level is the entry to the home from the driveway, 1 of 2 family rooms, kitchen, dining, screen room and an open deck. The lower level has a large bedroom with King bed, a large bathroom plus another family room with sofa, loveseat, chair and 2 twin beds (one is a trundle) in the game room.
Your dogs will enjoy the fenced acreage plus dog doors, and large crate in case there is separation anxiety. I can make arrangements for additional crates if needed.
The entire property is wooded, right down to the waterfront. Tons of shoreline and you can walk several hundred feet of shoreline for exploring or fishing. You can fish directly from the banks, dipping your line into a clear creek where you can see the fish swimming as the sunlight shines through the trees, or fish off the dock as well.
Enjoy gorgeous sunset views from the dock. The cove has little boat traffic and with the property situated closer to the end, swimming and floating off the dock is a relaxing experience. There are no docks at all to our right looking up the cove, and the other docks in sight are far enough away to truly have a private feel.
The lighted walkway to the dock is approximately 200 feet, it is a very gentle sloping walk, meandering alongside the creek, and over a little bridge. The dock has a walkway that connects to the land and is not visible from the home's deck. To access the lake side of the home you must go down the stairs to the 1st level of the home (through the game room). There is a kid’s wagon with 2 seats/seatbelts, and another metal wagon that's good for lake gear and a wheeled cooler.
There are 2 wood Adirondack chairs on the dock, a couple of zero gravity chairs, a glider bench, and a bench seat as well as umbrella for shade. The open area of the dock is about 16x16 plus the 2 walkways alongside the boat. The lakeview is amazing, and it is so private compared to some other areas of the lake.
Take the paddleboat or kayak out onto the water - it's almost always calm out there and we typically see very few boats in our deepwater cove. Feel free to bring your own motorboat and tie up to our dock. Access the water from the shoreline or use the convenient steps down into the water from the dock.
There is no lawn or grassy play area, however there are plenty of trees for climbing and you'll find swings, hammock and other fun things amongst the trees! My very young grandchildren love to walk the long dirt/gravel driveway with me, looking for pretty rocks, acorns, and other "treasures." The neighborhood is terrific for biking on a paved surface- it's a very quiet, well-established neighborhood with several year round homeowners.
Please note, there is NO SMOKING on this property.
For your convenience, the kitchen is well equipped with several pantry items - there is a list provided in the guest manual. All mattresses and pillows have zippered waterproof protectors. I have tried my best to think of all the basics to make your visit a happy one.
Just let me know what you need to make your stay enjoyable and I will attempt to accommodate. Enjoy the lake!
