Welcome to your personal private Cliffs at Keowee Falls estate and family compound. Situated on Keowee Falls most desirable lakefront cove, this 4.08 ac property comprises adjoining home sites (51, 52 & 53) with the custom built 4,800 sq ft residence constructed on the middle of three properties (52). The sites have been opened to offer unencumbered long-range lake, mountain and island views, with the home site and lot 51 having waterfront shoreline of approximately 217 ft. Home site 52 has a covered dock installed with boat lift. The three properties are bordered by a stream that flows down the right property line, terminating into a cascading waterfall. A treed ridge line that rises from the stream offers additional privacy from neighbors. Significant improvements have been made with walkways, sitting areas, and cart paths that meander from the residence to the lakefront, yet the landscaping remains natural and low maintenance. This spectacular lake residence and it's adjoining properties are ideal for owners who may have the desire to build additional residences to accommodate family and guests, as two other residences can be constructed on the adjoining home sites. Nestled on a waterfront hillside above Lake Keowee, and with a view that stretches for miles across open water to distant mountains beyond, 411 Evergreen Trail is a decidedly exceptional experience in lake living. The setting is extraordinary: An enchanting natural stream flows across the property in a blend of waterfalls and gentle effervescence, and is crowned by an Appalachian-style covered bridge. Its companion is a recirculating water feature at the rear of the home that flows down multiple falls and under a natural stone bridge to a sizeable Koi pond, all the while delivering serene sounds throughout the homes outdoor spaces and echoing indoors when windows are open. Park-like landscaping transforms the walk to the lake and covered dock with boat lift into a captivating stroll. Extensive exterior lighting illuminates meandering stone walkways, wood stairs, a fire pit with seating area, boulder retaining walls, multiple benches, and mulched cart/ATV paths leading to a waterside parking deck. Lovingly cultivated flora comprises ornamental evergreens, whispering pines, grand hardwoods, berry bushes, and near-year-round blooms from a potpourri of perennials. The house, resting at the end of a paver drive and motor court, presents a handsome stone and masonry siding exterior. A mahogany entry door opens to the great room and far-reaching views, heightened by three levels of windows. Brazilian cherry floors and wood-planked ceilings outline the space. Cherry cabinetry flanks the stone fireplace, with one side housing a TV lift concealing a large flat screen. French doors open to the rear Ipe deck, where a daily kaleidoscope of vibrant sunrise colors rewards the early riser. Adjacent to the great room, the copious kitchen is lined with stately custom cherry cabinetry by Savage Company. Details of note include upper cabinets with glass fronts and accent lighting, granite counters of wonderfully warm tones, tile backsplash, immense island, heavy wrought iron chandelier, double ovens, gas cooktop, and walk-in pantry. The dining room sits in an oversized, waterfront, bay-window area and is topped by an octagonal wood ceiling. French doors in the kitchen/dining areas access the homes piece de resistance, an outdoor screened porch with stone fireplace, built-in grill, wood ceiling, and ingenious, retractable vinyl windows that afford truly year-round comfort and convenience. The porch provides the ideal vantage point for taking in the stunning scenery: the natural stream on one side, the water feature with Koi pond on another, and the lake and mountain vistas on yet another.
