Extensive and far-reaching mountain vistas provide an incomparable backdrop for this magnificent country estate. Located just 20 minutes from Clemson, 40 minutes from Greenville, 10 from Pickens and minutes from Lake Keowee, its convenient location is matched by the loveliness of its topography and the residence. 24+/- acres comprise undulating, open fields, mixed forest, two streams (one of which rises from springs on the property, the other of which falls in a magical cascade through banks of rhododendrons) and ample opportunity for a variety of uses. Further, a tidy 1,500 square foot guest house with 6-stall horse barn entice with compelling possibilities. Privately situated from the main road by the gentle fall of the land, mature oaks and impeccable landscaping line the drive to the main residence, where an elegant Georgian exterior timelessly houses over 5,000 square feet of luxurious living space. This is finished to an exacting standard and incorporates five bedrooms, four and one half bathrooms, a cherrywood-lined library, formal dining and living areas, spacious kitchen, media room, wine cellar, and generous storage. Gracious, classical proportions, oak flooring, numerous mod cons, lavish moldings and finishes, and custom cabinetry all exude quality and comfort. Of particular note are the luxurious master suite with delightful sitting area, gas-log fireplace, trey ceiling with dentil moldings, built-in bookshelves and cabinets and en suite bathroom; and the cook’s kitchen, which is fitted with stainless Thermador 6-burner (plus indoor grill) range, Uba Tuba granite countertops with dropped baking station in 10’x4’ island, double Thermador wall ovens, full-sized Sub-Zero freezer and fridge, double warming ovens, instant hot water, trash compactor, ice machine and capacious walk-in pantry.
This very special and unique property offers a lifestyle of privilege, comfort, convenience, style and endless possibilities all within a setting of immense natural beauty.
