Live It. Love it. Lake it. The Keowee Life! This is your opportunity to own a waterfront home in the sought-after subdivision of Waterside Crossing. This immaculately well-maintained, charming home sits on nearly an acre of perfectly manicured landscaping with luscious zoysia grass, beautiful shrubbery, Japanese Maple trees, and stone and paver steps leading to your covered dock. The three-season porch, with IPE decking and a wood burning fireplace is the favorite space of the owners and they enjoy it all year round, even in the summer, as the back of the house hosts shade all day. In the winter they enjoy time on the lower patio by the gas fireplace. The lower patio is protected from rain as there is no open decking above it and makes a perfect space for family and friends to gather and enjoy playing in the yard. The deck and the dock also feature IPE decking. Soft close cherry drawers and cabinets with pull-out shelving, stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances that includes a forty-eight-inch dual-fuel range, a walk-in pantry and a finely crafted hood are a few of the highlights of the eat-in kitchen.

The Master Bathroom features dual sinks, maple wood vanity, water closet, tiled, walk-in shower (no glass door to clean!), and an ample walk-in closet with Carolina closet system. A guest room with private access to the three-season porch is on the opposite side of the Master suite on the main level with adjacent full bathroom. The laundry room features a sink, maple cabinetry with pull-out shelving and a window for added light. A dining room and office complete the main level. Hardwood flooring runs through the family room, dining room, office and kitchen areas, tile in the bathrooms and carpet in the bedrooms.

There is a den, guest en-suite bedroom, a bunk room, a full bathroom, and another guest room. All bedrooms face Lake Keowee. Abundant storage and more possibilities are offered by the enormous heated and cooled space downstairs. This area contains a second laundry, a potential wine cellar, plenty of room to exercise or a workshop/craft space. If a sauna is desired, the wiring is already in place!

Seneca was originally founded as Seneca City, named for a Native American village in the area and the Seneca River. Seneca was situated at the intersection of the Blue Ridge Railroad and the Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line Railroad, which are now part of the Norfolk Southern Railway. Two engineers for the Air Line Railroad purchased the land from Colonel Brown of Anderson, South Carolina. The land was divided into one-mile lots stemming from a stake driven into the center of the railroad intersection, which marked the center of town. The town held an auction on August 14, 1873 and Seneca City received a charter on March 14, 1874. It wasn’t until 1908 that the town’s name was changed to Seneca.
Seneca became a prominent marketing and shipping point for cotton, and eventually, a passenger terminal, a number of hotels, and a park — now called Norton-Thompson Park — were built near the railroad tracks. Several textile mills were also erected in Seneca and most have since closed their doors.
The town saw significant growth with the construction of Lake Hartwell in 1963, Lake Keowee in 1971, and Lake Jocassee in 1974.
