Set upon a gently sloping peninsula, reaching out into the northern waters of Lake Keowee, this 6,300 square foot home offers an unparalleled vista from its waterfront site. The home forms a narrow bar stretched across its site to afford a spectacular view from every major space within it. In further response to its unique locale, the home features a private observatory – a solitary retreat isolated from the remainder of the home – from which the most broad panorama is available.
The homeowners desire to have a casual living environment is expressed through a mountain vernacular design vocabulary and the use of readily available indigenous rustic materials such as natural fieldstone and cedar shingles.
On the interior, intimate alcoves, piazzas, woodwork, and fireplaces add an instantly recognizable well aged patina throughout this traditional Shingle Style home. In its totality, the home offers a quiet retreat that fits seamlessly into its surrounding environment.
