3 Car Garage
Welcome to "the lake castle" - wonderfully unique, this home was built for entertaining. One of only a few houses of this size on lake hartwell in anderson school district 5, this home is close enough to all the conveniences of town but quiet enough to seem as if you are miles away. Home boasts a 2. 5 car courtyard garage as well as plenty of additional parking and beautiful landscaped front yard with an irrigation system. As you cross the bridge to enter the house, there's a fountain to the right and slate waterfall to the left, you will probably catch a glimpse of many koi and goldfish that call the pond home. Open the over-sized mahogany stained front door into the impressive foyer to see straight through the entire home to an unparalleled lake view. Beautiful south american soto wood floors lead to an 8 foot wide stairway down to a massive 60 x 20 great room, featuring 21 ft. Ceiling with floor to ceiling windows. Down the stairs, you'll find a large fireplace with gas logs w/ built in shelving on each side, 2 bedrooms with built-in drawers, shelves and desks and huge walk-in closets each, 2 bathrooms, a game area, a kitchenette w/ large bar, 2 bonus rooms ( that could be used as more bedrooms but don't have windows), several large closets, and an indoor/outdoor tiki room with a fireplace w/gas logs, a hot tub, a half bath, and another bar! The main floor (all soto hardwood 2012) features a large kitchen with built-in kitchenaid refrigerator, oven, microwave, 2 drawer kenmore dishwasher, 36inch kenmore 5 burner induction range, granite counters with multi-level bar-tops, and a built-in china cabinet. There is also a breakfast area in kitchen with balcony overlooking great room and a wonderful lake view. There is also a mud room leading to the garage. Around the corner is a large pantry (tile 2014) with many shelves, cabinets, drawers, counter and wine fridge and a closet and laundry room with a chandelier and built-in ironing board. Off the kitchen is a sunroom with double sliding doors leading to large private deck with spiral stairs to 20 x 60 observation deck. Across foyer is a spacious master suite. Open double doors to a sitting room with tray ceiling and balcony overlooking great room, built-in desk and storage, spectacular lake and sunset views from this room, and attached is a large master bath (tile 2014) that features his and hers walk-in closets with individualized closet systems (chandeliers in hers). Bathroom also features a double steam shower with seat, and an over-sized jetted tub. Off the master sitting room, is the huge master bedroom in the octagonal turret with more stunning lake views. The stairway to the upper level is off the mud room and opens to a huge bonus room. This would make a fabulous theater room, in-law suite, gym, teen suite, etc. There are also 2 bedrooms and a full bath on this level. New stain resistant carpet and padding in 2014. Major remodel 2012. The lot is one of the best- most of the time there is a great breeze, some sun, partial shade, fantastic views, an almost level walk to the lake. Double slip dock with specially fabricated walk-in steps with handrails. You won't find another home to compare to this one if you love to entertain!!
