Located in the sought-after Deer Run subdivision on Lake Hartwell’s southern end, this property is a peaceful 3.25 acre retreat with a landscape design that promotes privacy. The owners of this home built it with unrivaled quality, as well as a design that would transcend time and accommodate their many lifestyle changes over the years. They even enlisted the help of a Feng Shui expert to ensure positive energy flows by balancing the placement and orientation of rooms, doors, and windows. The home’s carefully planned features allow an array of interests and hobbies and offer the flexibility to accommodate varying family sizes and life stages. This home was designed to suit anyone from a young family with children, retirees hosting frequent visitors, those working from home, or even someone looking for a vacation home. The lower level can function as a complete apartment for aging parents or adult children moving back home. A worry-free lifestyle is supported by an auto start 22kw backup generator, a mesh WiFi system, an intrusion, fire and water alarm system, both interior and exterior camera systems, and motion-controlled driveway and garage apron lights. Just a short golf cart away, the deeded boat slip includes an entertainment deck and a boat lift. In addition to being on good water all year, you’ll appreciate the benefit of using the dock without the responsibility of making repairs or moving it with fluctuating water levels. The restricted Deer Run subdivision is unique among Lake Hartwell communities, offering amenities such as video surveillance in common areas, a community walking/horseback riding trail, covered picnic pavilions, firepits, and gated access to boat storage areas and community docks. You won’t even have to sacrifice convenience for these benefits – a mere 3 miles away, you’ll have access to supermarkets, a pharmacy, a hardware store, & several restaurants. Those who enjoy hosting will value the forethought that went into creating this home to be an entertainer’s dream. The main level has an open floorplan that flows out onto a screened porch and open deck overlooking the salt water pool. The terrace level has a full second kitchen, complete with an outdoor walk-up window to make serving your guests a breeze. After a day at the lake or pool, you can toss swimsuits and towels into the washer and dryer located in the oversized lower level bathroom, instead of hauling wet items upstairs to wash. This space also provides a private place for your guests to shower and change before heading into the game room. Further enhancing the fun is a wet bar that incudes a double tap kegerator and a full-size refrigerator/freezer for other beverages and snacks. Back on the main level, a true gourmet kitchen awaits. Appliances include a gas cooktop, warming drawer, wall oven and microwave, and beverage center. The custom cabinets feature pantry style pull-outs, mixer lift with in-cabinet outlet, dividers for baking pans, pull-out cutting board, hidden trash can, and more. Yet another space that shows the care that went into designing this home is the main level owner’s suite. With a beautiful lighted tray ceiling, access to the screened porch, and natural light pouring in through several windows, the bedroom is inviting at any hour. Dual walk-in closets provide ample storage space, and the en suite washer & dryer make laundry less of a chore. The adjoining bathroom is an owner’s oasis, offering both a steam bath and jetted tub. Several rooms have the flexibility to be used as full-time bedrooms or guest rooms if needed. To ensure a healthy living environment, the sellers have installed electronic air filters along with the iWave system, which reduced viruses, bacteria, and other airborne particles. Other features include 10' ceilings through most of the home, central vacuum, integrated stereo speakers, & an Orbit WiFi sprinkler system.
