This waterfront, custom-built home is an architectural masterpiece located on the sought-after deep water of 71,000 acre Lake Thurmond along the Freshwater Coast of SC. From the moment you enter this remarkable home, its uncompromising quality is evident. The open floor plan features panoramic views of the lake through extra large double-paned casement windows topped with clearstory windows. Several 8-foot glass French doors allow unobstructed views from the entryway, Great Room, kitchen, and dining area. The entryway affords its own wall of windows and 8-foot French doors, casting natural light upon the white oak hardwood floors that sweep through all common areas on the main floor. The entryway's chandelier and double crown molding accentuate the stature of this home, as do the 12-foot ceilings in every common area on the main floor (except the great room where you will find a 12-and-a-half foot tray ceiling).Double crown molding flows from the entrance into a resort-like, grand, sunken, great room with a stunning, stacked stone, double fireplace; raised hearth; built-in entertainment center and bookshelf; and a wet bar complete with wine rack, custom cabinets, and small refrigerator. The kitchen is timeless with granite countertops, antique-finished cabinetry, a convection oven, raised dishwasher, and an island with a gas cooktop and downdraft. The kitchen bar and dining area can comfortably seat twelve people. French doors lead from the dining room onto a tiled screened-in porch that will host another party of eight. The screened-in porch is nestled between the covered side porch and the back deck that spans the length of the home: a modern riff on the classic Southern wrap-around porch with magnificent views of the lake.Also on the main floor are the master bedroom and bath, a study, a half bath, and a laundry area. The study includes chair rail, built-in bookshelves, and a hideaway desk. It is to the right of the foyer and blends perfectly with its glass bifold doors and lovely views.The spacious, private main bedroom is a serene sanctuary akin to a grand hotel suite. With plush carpet and hardwoods, it shares the double-sided, wood-burning fireplace (with gas starter). From the master bedroom, step into a gorgeous light-filled bathroom with a step-in glass shower, a separate toilet room, a huge walk-in closet, his sink and countertop, and hers sink and vanity. The downstairs also consists of lakeside walls of windows. All ceilings are 10 feet on this level which includes: a billiard room with an antique pool table, an expansive in-law suite, a guest bedroom, a third full bath, and a full kitchen with a gas stove and antique finished cabinets. Step out from the in-law bedroom, recreation room, or guest bedroom onto the covered patio to enjoy the views. The home's boat slip is just a short walk away.The ground floor also features a mechanical room for easy access to the HVAC systems and one of two water heaters. There is also a large workshop: a woodworker's dream come true! Handyman's delight. This workshop has French doors that look out onto the lake, a utility sink, plenty of room for tool storage, and numerous electrical outlets for saws and other tools. The concrete, stained floors, and separate entrance make it perfect for easy cleanup and transporting equipment; or even moving your project outside to the covered patio when desired.A circular driveway and well-established river birches greet you as you arrive and park in your 3+ car garage. The garage will easily accommodate three cars, a golf cart, and plenty of storage. Also noteworthy is the immaculate landscaping and proximity to conveniences and amenities like the bank, doctors' offices, gas station, Recreation Center, two championship golf courses, The River Grille, downtown McCormick and Lincolnton, GA.
