Timeless beauty thatâs beautifully priced! If you accept three conditions you could make the buy of the year on a Cliffs at Keowee Springs waterfront home: 1) The owner of this custom designed home used a superior method of construction â Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) as opposed to wood framing. ICF walls are steel reinforced concrete with two continuous layers of insulation on both sides of the wall with no thermal bridges. They create an airtight building envelop with stronger structural integrity. In addition to being airtight the walls also produce a vapor barrier. Too technical? Ok, ICF walls perform so well that they keep dust, dirt and allergens out ensuring a cleaner, healthier environment for your family. Are you a light sleeper or want to keep outside noise out? The thickness and denseness of ICF walls virtually eliminates outside noise whether it is from automobiles, boats or lawn equipment, creating a peaceful, tranquil and quiet living area. Itâs so quiet inside the home youâll be able to hear a gnatâs whisper. 2) Low operating and maintenance expenses. Obviously energy efficiency is extremely important to the owners and they paid for it during construction. However the true cost is combining construction costs with operating expenses over time. Therein lies the big benefit to you â the electric and natural gas bills combined are approximately $132 per month. The home is nearly 5,500 sq. ft. with soaring ceilings in the impact areas and 10â ceilings everywhere else including the lower level walk out. Thatâs a tremendous amount of volume to condition, isnât it? The utility bills are provided as proof. 3) If you are looking for a dark, heavy mountain, rustic interior designed home â this home isnât for you. This home has a more traditional flare. Itâs open, airy and bright with tons of natural light. Situated at the end of a private cul-de-sac and in a large cove, this magnificent waterfront home is a haven for gazing at a long Lake Keowee view from nearly every room in the home including the second bedroom en-suite on the main level. This home is an entertainerâs delight. The main level kitchen with its over-sized island which measures over 5âx5â provides enough workspace to have multiple chefs in the kitchen. Some chefs comfortably working preparing the food and othersâ¦. well you get my point. The lower level provides an additional entertaining area for your family and friends. A pub style bar with 6 bar stools and complete kitchen makes food prep a breeze. All this entertaining space does present a potential problem â your overnight and evening party guests may stay longer than anticipated because they are having so much fun. The home offers abundant places to dine âeasily 24 people comfortably. The intimate dining room for your smaller gatherings and for the larger parties, the breakfast nook, and the various outdoor spaces whether in the screened in porch, covered patio or deck. The party is over and the guests have retreated to their space on the lower level, itâs time to wind down. Do you find staring at the flickering flames of a fire enjoyable? Great! Youâll be able to fall asleep and wake up to a two-sided fireplace that the master suite and great room share. The lower level boasts 2 en-suites one which is large enough for an entire family. Also, there is a finish room that could be easily become an exercise/game/craft room, office or bedroom. From the lower level an easy stroll to your covered dock with lift. Itâs a home and setting so comfortable, relaxing, quiet and calming âyouâll never want to leave.
