Dive off your covered wood dock into 25 ft+ deep of emerald clear Lake Keowee water. This craftsman home, situated on a premier point lot, provides water views from every room in the home, even the laundry room! With lush trees providing shade and a private deep water cove, you will find both serenity and waterfront fun at Placid Cove Way.A flat paver stone driveway lined with trees leads you to a gabled entrance surrounded by flowers. Open the front doors to find the great room with a vaulted ceiling with beams, stone fireplace, and large sliding glass doors to your expansive patio. An architectural feat by Ron Welsh, the main patio is a cavalliered deck, with half coverage from the roof. Picture yourself dining on the patio enjoying the shade or even while a gentle rainfall occurs. Rain or shine, your dinner party is sure to be a success with water views and the ambience of being amongst the trees.The kitchen and formal dining room opens to your living room, separated by a small cabinet wall to create the feeling of multiple spaces while still maintaining an open concept design. Family and friends will enjoy gathering at the barstools surrounding the kitchen island and any gourmet chef will enjoy the large walk-in-pantry, gas range stove top, and KitchenAid oven. The refrigerator and the brand new Thermador dishwasher (purchased summer of 2022) is covered by wood paneling to create a seamless look throughout the kitchen. All drawers in the kitchen are soft closing premium drawers that close silently and gently, without manually pushing them.Adjacent to the dining area, a screened in porch with a wood burning stone fireplace is accessible year round thanks to the rolling plastic screens installed around the porch. Enjoy snuggling up in front of the fire with Lake Keowee views even in the winter months in this functional space. Built for main level living, the master suite boasts water views, a large walk-in closet, linen closet, and dual sink bathroom with sand colored tiles. Enjoy natural light from a high placed window in the large walk-in shower complete with a custom built in stone bench.A winding staircase oozes with charm as it doubles as a two story bookshelf with a sliding ladder. Down the stairs, you'll find another great room with sliding glass doors to a stone patio surrounded by fragrant gardenias. Three bedrooms connect to the terrace level main living space. With grandkids and guests in mind, two of the bedrooms share a full ""jack and jill"" bathroom, complete with a large tiled walk-in shower. The third bedroom has its own full bathroom with a tub that seamlessly flows into the ""lake room"". Built off the side entrance of the house, with a drain in the floor and custom cabinetry to hold lake toys, life vests, beach towels, and more, this space is designed for water sport lovers. Also on this level you will find a custom wet bar with functioning sink and a microwave built into an antique cabinet, large refrigerator, another linen closet, storage space under the stairs, an expansive walk-in storage room and a spacious work room for tools that could be easily converted into a fifth bedroom and additional bathroom.The two car garage also has an attached garage space for a golf cart, connecting to the winding mulched path, already designed with a cart in mind, down to your dock. With multiple spaces carved into the hill, enjoy outdoor dining areas, the perfect spot for a firepit, and a space already built in to turn a golf cart around.The dock receives afternoon shade and with its privacy in the back of the cove, along with its deep clear waters, it is truly a swimmer's haven. Family and friends will love swimming in this peaceful and clean spot on the Lake. This custom-built home provides an amazing location on a 3/4 island lot, multiple outdoor spaces for entertaining, comes with most furnishings and is a move-in ready must-see. Don't miss out on the chance to see this home in person.
