Unique opportunity to own subdividable lakefront acreage, a beautiful custom-built home, and a new storage barn (or workshop) in a desirable area of Lake Hartwell. Ideally situated only minutes from groceries and shopping, with a public park and boat ramp at the end of the street, only 3 miles to the closest golf course, 10 miles to downtown Anderson, 40 miles to Greenville, 1.5 hours to Atlanta, 2 hours to Asheville, 2.3 hours to Charlotte, and 4 hours to Charleston and the coast.The main home is a high-quality custom-built Seaside-style gem featuring a unique 360-degree panoramic cupola observatory, a one bedroom separate apartment (750 square foot guest or rental suite) over the 3-car enclosed garage, cedar siding, metal roof, maple floors, crown-molding, wainscotting, upper and lower screened porches, rear deck, covered attached carport, finished basement, granite counters, stainless appliances, and many other custom touches. The home is set far back from the road for privacy and a wooded walk to the covered private dock in a small cove that opens into the big water of Hartwell Lake. The main floor includes maple flooring, 9-foot ceilings, a bedroom with adjoining bathroom, kitchen with custom cabinets, dining area, living room with custom cabinets and a gas log, library nook with built-in custom bookshelves, screened porch, and open deck on the rear overlooking the woods and lake. The main floor also connects to the heated and cooled mud-room (complete with half bath) that adjoins the 3-car separately heated and cooled garage with utility sink. The 2nd floor includes maple flooring, a master suite with private bathroom (separate tub and shower and two sinks) and upper screened porch, two additional bedrooms with shared bathroom (great for kids or guests), laundry closet, balcony overlook to the foyer, and custom ship-ladder up to the cupola. The panoramic cupola (also with maple flooring) makes for a lovely bonus room for adventurous guests, an artist’s get-away, or whatever you can imagine for the unique space. The finished basement includes luxury vinyl plank flooring, a bedroom with adjoining bathroom, a large L-shaped main room (currently media room and workout area), a storage/mechanical room, and opens to a 12 x 30 covered lean-to carport/patio. The separate apartment over the garage includes solid bamboo flooring, a bedroom with walk-in closet, bathroom accessible from bedroom or living room, large open room with a full kitchen, living room, dining area, and separate full-sized stacked laundry units in a closet. The apartment is on separate power so it can be rented if desired.The land is 9.28 acres of hard-to-find lakefront with gently rolling mostly-open grassland surrounded by pastures, open fields, and government-protected woodlands (Army Corps of Engineers land) with River Forks Recreation Area just at the end of the road (the recreation area has wooded playgrounds, sandy beaches, rental pavilions (for parties), boat ramps, etc. and is a great place to exercise outdoors). The land is subdividable so you can build other homes as an investment, or keep it all to yourself as a private estate. This is a dream-home/ranch for horse or other animal lovers, with plenty of pasture land for equestrian activities, etc. The soil is quite fertile if you desire to start a farm and grow your own food and/or raise your own livestock. It’s an extremely quiet and peaceful setting with wild deer roaming the fields and beautiful stars at night. Separate stand-alone covered carport (20 x 26 – currently used as a tractor shed) and a new large storage barn with 2 additional covered carports (24 x 40 x 14 enclosed on concrete and two 12 x 24 covered lean-to carports (one on each side). The barn could be used for horses, a workshop, or as storage for car collections, boats, and other grown-up toys, etc.
