Agent Remarks

With utterly jaw-dropping Lake Keowee vistas visible through its glass front door, one can fall head-over-heels in love with 640 Sweet Fern Trail even before entering the home. From an exceptional vantage point just above a fully private cove, expansive views extend up, down, and across Keowees northern channel. Descending from a ridge above the lake, a meandering paver drive, flanked by boulder retaining walls and verdant landscaping, sets the stage for this spectacular lakefront estate. The homes exterior blends masonry siding with abundant stone. Inside, a large arched opening leads from the stone-walled foyer to the great room. Here, as in practically every area, views of the lakeframed by high-reaching windowsare the overriding focal point. A medley of architectural features includes a stately stone fireplace and bountiful umber-hued millwork, most notably displayed in the coffered ceiling. French doors open to a partially covered deck, which can be almost entirely shaded by its accompanying umbrella. In the kitchen, a central island with unique oval sink sits in front of a weighty stone alcove housing a Wolf gas range with double ovens. A custom-paneled Sub-Zero fridge, Miele dishwasher, warming drawer, pot-filler faucet, and adjacent bar area with stemware storage and beverage cooler are sure to elate the epicure. Accordion glass doors connect the kitchen with a lakeside screened porch with fireplace and grilling kitchen. The main levels right wing holds a luxurious owners retreat. A handsome office has built-in storage and intricately designed wood ceiling. The bedroom offers lovely views and access to the deck, while the en suite provides double vanities, a deep soaking tub, and multi-head shower. Boutique storage in the closet includes pull-down rods and retractable pants racks. On the lower level, the spacious family room incorporates a kitchenette with a pub-like wrap-around bar. Three bedroom suites have walk-in closets and generous baths. A full-mirrored exercise room with its own TV feed adds to work-out convenience. Outdoors, a stone terrace indulges with resort-style delights: a roomy hot tub bubbles in front of a stone fireplace, while a nearby recirculating water feature ripples across river stone. A paver pathway, extending from the front of the home and with direct access to the 3 bay garage, is designed for easy golf-cart use that leads to a covered dock. Golf cart remains with home.This waterfront delight is located in The Cliffs at Keowee Falls, a Lake Keowee community with a full suite of country-club amenities, including a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, clubhouse with multiple dining venues, staffed wellness center, resort-style pool, tennis complex, miles of walking trails, parks, and more.
