Welcome to 175 South Falls, a one of a kind luxury retreat on two immaculately landscaped yet secluded acres in The Reserve at Lake Keowee, a preeminent lake and golf club community with world class amenities. As the 300 foot-permeable paver driveway leads you past a professionally designed and landscaped lawn, you will feel like you are on the streets of Europe. Take in the beautiful gardenia hedge, tea olives, Deodar cedars, golden spruce, and array of Bonsai trees; this is truly a nature lover’s paradise!
An extensive herringbone brick courtyard welcomes you to this totally custom estate. Inspired by a Dutch Colonial Gambrel roof design, this home features a copper dome awning supported by Doggett Mountain stone columns while additional stone columns throughout the home accentuate its architectural lines. True clay tiles cover the entire roof, providing an old-world design and evoking that European feel and appearance.
Gas lit torches flank double leaf, custom, solid mahogany doors which warmly welcome you into the foyer with its half circular wall and textured bronze finish. Once inside, it becomes immediately evident that all interior finishes have been meticulously selected by the owners including the Carlisle wide plank hickory hardwood, travertine, and Mosaics marble floors, along with the 8’tall custom mahogany interior doors with hand hewn panels.
Enter the breathtaking great room with its 20-foot-ceiling and custom timber beams accentuated by curved brackets. This stunning room features arches supported by Doggett Mountain stone columns, a custom alder sideboard with Calacatta marble top, and a massive stone fireplace with a herringbone Isokern firebox constructed of Icelandic volcanic stone. A finished mezzanine can be accessed with a future spiral staircase that could be used as an office or den.
