Sunset, SC (April 2, 2014) – After announcing its first piece of waterfront property for sale in 2000, The Reserve at Lake Keowee (“The Reserve”) is pleased to unveil two new lakefront neighborhoods. Fourteen years in the making, the grand opening of Peninsula Ridge and Edgewater Park comprises The Reserve’s last available pieces of contiguous waterfront property in the community’s master plan, each with premium homesites showcasing views of Lake Keowee – one of the country’s purest freshwater lakes – starting in the high $400,000s.

“To say these properties are special would be doing them a disservice,” states Rutledge Livingston, director of sales at The Reserve at Lake Keowee. “They are ample in size, fairly priced, and have a second-to-none view. You couldn’t ask for a better backdrop for a family lakehouse, getaway, or investment property. We do not expect these to stay on the market long.”

Peninsula Ridge features 16 estate-sized homesites with elevated lake and mountain views. These homesites offer the best of both worlds – a private, retreat-like atmosphere within a 15-minute drive to award-winning Clemson University and within an hour to nationally acclaimed Greenville, S.C.  Each homesite has open water views, gently sloping topography and private boat dock capability. A water taxi service from Peninsula Ridge to The Reserve’s community-centric Village is available for homeowners.

Edgewater Park is conveniently located near The Reserve’s Village center and has 12 planned homesites – each permitted for a private boat dock. In addition to easy access to The Village and its amenities – which include the Orchard House (clubhouse), 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, The Great Lawn, Market, Marina, Pool and Pavilion, Tennis and Fitness Center, Founders Hall and Post Office complex – homeowners will enjoy a 12-acre community park, the Woodland Trail System, open water views and native hardwood trees. Buyers can peruse six home concepts by architect Brad Wright, or they can elect to build a custom home. The architectural guidelines, unique to Edgewater Park, require setbacks designed to protect view corridors and privacy. A 4,000 square foot Idea Home within Edgewater Park is in the planning stage and will break ground soon.
