Arcadia Custom Home on Lake Keowee


Sometimes you just know a home is special as soon as you see it. This is one of those homes.

The multi-pitched roof line looks artfully pieced together, with turns and angles that perfectly frame the lake. The neutral color scheme has an unexpected, subtle pop of color with the robin’s egg blue windows.

Inside, you’ll see Old World flair with details and symmetry used to balance the creative floor plan boasting surprises at every corner. The kitchen tile stands out against an otherwise neutral color scheme, and the kitchen island is built from the family’s old kitchen table, using stain and lacquer to add interest. Beautiful custom cabinetry is seen throughout the home, but nowhere is as prevalent as in the study. The paneled walls are rich and cover the walls and ceiling, offering perfect acoustics for their Baby Grand Piano. One of the built-in cabinets flanking the fireplace disguises a hidden “speakeasy” which can be accessed by a secret mechanism found on the shelves.

From the main hallway, if you take the stairs up instead of down, you will find a charming writing room, designed as a cozy nook for reading, writing, and painting. The walls and ceiling are wallpapered for distinction, and the floor is raised slightly to promote a cozier feeling. In the lower level, the temperature-controlled wine room is designed as a focal point along a hallway leading to the bar, game room, and outdoor living space.
