1.2 miles from Lake Hartwell
Enjoy 2+ lakefront acres, fenced, gated & wooded, on a long driveway for the ultimate private lake retreat. 9 acres of woods to the right and you can hardly see the closest neighbor to the left - this is one of the most private properties on the lake. New for 2020 - addition of a huge 3rd deck, outdoor fire feature, tetherball, all new kitchen appliances/granite, a 2nd refrigerator and there is even a bass boat available for rent.
Offering 3 levels of open concept living designed with the extended family in mind. Lots of natural light & woodwork, the home is spacious & comfortable in & out with 2 family rooms, 3 large decks & screen porch. Stroll to the private dock via the lighted pathway and enjoy electricity & stairs into deep water at the dock; fish, swim, sunbathe or sit in the shade! Piped gas grill and fire table, 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 is spacious and comfortable with additional thermostat controlled heat/ac unit. The main level has 2 bedrooms - one is a King with a 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 & gated 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 or using the outside deck stairs). There is a kid’s wagon with 2 seats/seatbelts, a metal wagon that's good for lake gear and a wheeled cooler.
There are 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 lake view is amazing, and it is so private compared to some other areas of the lake.
Take the paddle boat or kayak out onto the water - it's almost always calm out there and we typically see very few boats in our large 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.
The neighborhood is terrific for biking on a paved surface- it's very quiet, well-established with several year round homeowners.
Please note, there is NO SMOKING on this property.
For your convenience, the kitchen is well equipped with all the usual cookware plus a large roasting pan, muffin, cake & cookie pans, crock pot, electric griddle, waffle maker, quesadilla maker, electric chopper, coffee grinder, blender, mixer, electric juicer, a keurig & a drip coffee maker, 4 slice toaster & toaster oven. The pantry is stocked with all the basic spices & other staples required when creating a terrific meal.
All mattresses and pillows have zippered waterproof protectors.
The boat launch is less than a mile by road, 1/2 mile by water.
For an additional $500 security deposit use of bass boat with trolling motor $25/day.
Just let me know what you need to make your stay enjoyable and I will attempt to accommodate. Enjoy the lake!
