Mediterranean inspiration, unique styling and a stunning view make this home truly Elysian. Enveloped in the warmth of stucco and stone, roofed with tile accented by chimney pots, and surrounded by delightful gardens, it’s easy to picture this home in the hills of Tuscany. The gentle topography of the Blue Ridge foothills and the crystal-blue waters of Lake Keowee provide an equally enchanting milieu. The waterfront location provides incredible views of the water from most every room in the house. The location is only a short golf cart or car ride from the clubhouse and golf course. Spacious and comfortable living areas complement the six bedrooms, a bunk room with six full and one-half baths. A cloister-vaulted gallery, elevator, antique fixtures and accents, a wine cellar, Italian porcelain tiled and reclaimed wormy chestnut floors and numerous special finishes give this home a layered beauty available from only unique custom build residences. The large master suite with its double closets, spacious bath with steam shower, and outdoor sleeping porch with long range views of the lake create a serene setting. 226 Long Ridge is ideal for entertaining guests and family. The impressive interior is complimented by extensive outdoor areas and landscaping. A terraced great lawn area, gentle path to the boathouse, two outdoor fireplaces, gardens, and lovely landscapes grace the grounds. For a full appreciation, a visit is highly recommended.

Lifestyle and Attractions

Lake Keowee is a 18,372-acre man-made lake situated in Upstate South Carolina. It was created by Duke Energy as a power utility and recreational destination in 1971. The lake collects water from the Keowee and Little Rivers, and the water is used to cool Duke Energy’s nuclear reactors and generate hydroelectric power. The water in Lake Keowee is known for its purity and cleanliness. There are a number of residential communities and small towns surrounding Lake Keowee, including Seneca, Keowee Plantation, Fairview, White Harbor, Salem, Keowee Key, Six Mile, Newry, and more.

Lake Keowee is situated approximately 800 feet above sea level, providing pristine views of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. This is an excellent location for those who appreciate both the mountains and lakeside living. Lake Keowee features over 300 miles of shoreline, stretching 23 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest point. The lake is a popular destination for fishing, boating, swimming, sailing, kayaking, and other water sports. There are several parks dotting the perimeter of the lake, where residents and visitors may access the sparkling blue waters of Lake Keowee. Parks include South Cove County Park, Bayshore Lakeside Park, High Falls County Park, Mile Creek Park, and several other smaller parks.

History

The word “Keowee” is roughly translated to a Cherokee name meaning “the place of the mulberries.” Before Europeans settled in North America, Cherokee Native Americans lived in the area and called the settlement “Keowee Town,” which was located along what they called the Keowee River. In 1753, settlers built Fort Prince George across the river, and the Indian Removal Act of 1830 forced the Cherokee out of the region.

 

In 1963, the South Carolina Land & Timber firm began purchasing land along the river in order to acquire, hold, and develop land and timber properties. Duke Power Company then purchased 83,400 acres from the Singer Corporation and various private landowners. In the mid-1960s, Duke began making plans to supply the southeastern US with greater electricity through a reservoir project. In 1965, Duke Energy announced plans to begin the Keowee-Toxaway project, which would cost an estimated $700 million. As construction began, archaeologists from the University of South Carolina discovered thousands of artifacts, including pottery and human and animal remains, during the excavation of the Cherokee settlement. The demolition and building project took several years to complete, and the initial transfer of water and commercial operation began in December 1973.
