Quality, comfort, convenience, privacy and location are all words used to describe 250 Long Ridge Road. Custom crafted in 2011, the full-time residents of 250 Long Ridge Road conducted an exhaustive search of Lake Keowee properties. Their needs list was ambitiousâa gently sloping home site with broad lake views, a sandy beach, and a location convenient to the east gate entrance (for quick trips to Clemson & Greenville), as well as The Reserve at Lake Keoweeâs marina, village, market, pool, and other amenities. A visit to this altogether park-like setting proves the owners achieved their goalsâand so much more. The homeâs exterior blends low-maintenance fiber-cement siding with copious amounts of stacked stone, shake roof, and rich gable accents to create an ambience of refined mountain-lake living. Inside, the nearness of Lake Keoweeâs waters is immediately obvious through arched windows in the great room. Key elements of this vast room are its vaulted, wood-plank-and-beam ceiling and its tall stone fireplace flanked by built-ins. The spacious kitchen is anchored by double granite islands with prep sink. Tempered-glass fronts accent upper knotty alder cabinets, while premium appliances -- double ovens, gas cooktop, beverage cooler, wine storage, trash compactor, copper pot filler and walk-in pantry indulge the gourmet. On one side of the kitchen is a dining room with double-tray ceiling, which is beautifully emphasized by hidden rope lighting. On the other, the lakeside keeping room is topped with a coffered ceiling of rustic beams. The master suite incorporates visually stunning textured walls and a unique octagonal planked-lined ceiling. In the posh master bath, his and her vanities boast copper sinks, perfectly complementing the attractive, free-standing copper tub and large, walk-in shower. A two-way mirror cleverly conceals the bathroom TV positioned behind it. The homeâs main level provides numerous additional spaces: a study with built-in desk, bay windows, a seating area with file storage drawers underneath, and cabinets; powder room with textured-granite bowl sink; mud room with storage and bench; laundry room with granite counters, a 3-car garage with epoxy floor and utility sink, plus a handy floored ceiling space for additional storage. The lower level maintains the homeâs exacting standards and surprises with originality. Painted wood walls lend a more rustic tone on this level, lining the family room, which includes a bar kitchenette. An adjacent room, currently outfitted as a gym, is accessed through sliding barn doors and finished with brick walls and coffered ceiling. A brick-floored garden room is as pretty as the blooms it inspires, while a more practical workshop with second laundry room gets down to business. Three sizable bedroom suites, all with lakefront views and one with shiplap walls, complete the lower level. Outdoor living areas inspire. The main level utilizes low maintenance ironwood decking for its three porches: a screened porch with stone fireplace, covered porch accessed from the keeping room, and grilling porch off the kitchen. The lower-level patio has an airy porch swing. On the grounds, paver and concrete paths, suitable for an easy walk or a golf-cart ride, lead to the rip-rapped shoreline and covered dock with lift. The home offers intrinsic features, such as extensive insulation in 2â x 6â exterior wall construction that results in energy savings, closet spaces prepped for an elevator, and a whole-yard, 7 zone lake-fed irrigation system that speak to its overall design and quality. This property is located near The Reserveâs Keowee Avenue gate, making for quick egress to local towns and Clemson University. Travel by golf cart or boat as the home is just around the corner from The Reserveâs Village and Great Lawn areas. The Reserve at Lake Keowee is an amenity-rich golf community spread across some of Lake Keoweeâs most scenic terrain.
