Upon approaching 308 Crooked Rock Lane, conveniently located near the gatehouse and highway 133, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in The Reserve at Lake Keowee, one is struck by the unusually gentle slope of the land and the unexpected nearness of the water. The site’s openness, accented by areas of lush green lawn not often found on lakefront properties, imparts a resort-like atmosphere. From the lake, the home sits just inside the entrance of a protected, deep-water cove, and even boasts a small sandy beach. The house’s predominantly stone and timber exterior, which extends to the three-car detached garage and connecting breezeway, gives an eloquent nod to nature that continues inside. The foyer leads to an open living area, where a stone fireplace soars to the high ceiling on one end, and, on the other, a weighty, two-level island anchors the well-appointed kitchen. In addition to Wolf appliances, the kitchen supplies modern chef’s perks like a warming drawer, ice maker, wine cooler, and Miele dishwasher but its antiqued, cross-handled fixtures lend timeless soul. A sunroom affording three-sided lake views lies off the kitchen and dining area, and an office is situated behind French doors off the foyer. Through Marvin windows and sliding doors, a covered porch spans almost the entire rear of the home, and bestows unhindered vistas with retractable screens and discreet glass railing. Its multi-hued, reclaimed barn board ceiling light-heartedly plays off the colors of its slate tile floor. The main-level master suite has tranquil lake views and doors to the screened porch in the bedroom, while the bath pampers with his and her vanities, multi-head shower, and soaking tub. A large closet with center storage island and a smaller walk-in are outfitted with custom shelving, as are all closets in the home. The lower level is an entertaining nirvana, providing a family room with fireplace, game room, kitchen delineated by an L-shaped, sit-down bar of stunning black granite, and, beyond a handcrafted iron and glass door, a wine room with built-in racks, coolers, and stone accent wall. The lower level also incorporates three guest suites. To simplify post-lake cleanup, one of the full baths opens to the spacious rear patio, where massive stone columns frame scenes of the lake and grounds. Accommodations continue above the air-conditioned, epoxy-floored garage, to a self-contained, loft-style apartment with kitchen, bedroom/den, and full bath. Outdoors, a free-standing cut stone fireplace with ample seating area, as well as an Adirondack sitting “room” on the covered boat dock with lift, mean the exterior living areas can charm a couple or welcome a crowd. Fully furnished—from the interior’s elegantly rustic selections, to the varied outdoor seating for up to 40, to the “Big Green Egg” grill that resides in the breezeway—this home is move-in ready. It’s also primed for Lake Keowee play: a custom-ordered, year-old pontoon boat with deluxe sound system, underwater blue lighting, and double Bimini top, as well as two Sea-Doo jet skis, are included. The Reserve at Lake Keowee is a lake and golf community offering a marina, clubhouse with fine and casual dining, village center, pool complex, and numerous other amenities. 308 Crooked Rock also offers excellent ingress and egress to the villages of Clemson and Pickens, SC.
