If you’re the proud owner of a home on Lake Keowee—and if “For Sale” signs have been crossing your mind more often than a squirrel on Rochester Hwy—grab a cup of joe, settle in, and let’s talk real estate for a few minutes.

As you know by now, Lake Keowee isn’t just a lake; it’s a lifestyle. And your property is the golden ticket to that lifestyle.

  • Consider the location. Our lake is located perfectly in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a backdrop that’s incredibly scenic even by Upstate South Carolina standards. And with over 300 miles of shoreline, this is waterfront living at its finest. You don’t just have a home for sale; you’ve got a piece of paradise.
  • Think about the recreational activities here. Fishing, boating, swimming, hiking – you name it, and Lake Keowee has it. The lake is practically a natural amusement park. And your property? It’s the all-access pass.
  • The real estate market around the lake is pretty much always in demand. We’ve witnessed the demand for homes in this region skyrocket over the years, as folks from all over are yearning for that Keowee lifestyle.

Prospective buyers in this area are seeking not just a house, but a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Your home is their dream waiting to happen.

So, why am I telling you this? Well, I’m here to tell you that your property—whether it’s a home in Keowee Key, a luxurious estate in The Reserve, or even a cozy cottage off the beaten path—holds immense potential.

With so few houses to keep up with the number of people looking, the Lake Keowee real estate market is often like a game of musical chairs. There are plenty of eager buyers dancing around, but not enough chairs—or in our case, homes for sale—to go around. Your property could be the “chair” for one lucky buyer.

10 11 Great Things About Living on Lake Keowee

  3. Community Spirit: Communities around Lake Keowee, like Keowee Key, The Cliffs at Keowee Springs and Keowee Vineyards are known for their friendly and welcoming neighbors.
  4. Natural Beauty: Perfectly positioned in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lake Keowee is surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. The panoramic lake and mountain views are a daily reminder of the stunning world we live in.
  5. Wildlife Wonders: From majestic eagles soaring in the sky to playful river otters in the lake (yes, I said river otters in a lake), our area is teeming with diverse wildlife. (And let’s not forget the incredible bass and trout fishing.) It’s like living in your own personal nature documentary!
  6. Proximity to Amenities: Despite its tranquil, off-the-beaten-path charm, Lake Keowee is just a short drive away from towns like Seneca and Clemson, making it convenient to access shopping, dining, and healthcare facilities.
  7. The Climate: Upstate South Carolina boasts a mild climate that makes it comfortable to enjoy outdoor activities all year round. With warm, sunny summers and mild winters, it’s the perfect spot for those who love to live outdoors.

  9. Stellar Night Skies: With less light pollution than in the city, the night skies over Keowee are a stargazer’s delight. You can often see the Milky Way, shooting stars, and even the occasional meteor shower!
  10. Property Value: The homes on Lake Keowee tend to retain their value well, thanks to the high demand for lakefront property in Upstate South Carolina. Owning a home here isn’t just a lifestyle choice, the right real estate can be a smart investment too.
  11. Crystal Waters: One of the most stunning aspects of Lake Keowee is its clear, sparkling waters. The lake is renowned for its remarkable clarity and vivid colors, ranging from sapphire blues to emerald greens. Not all lake homes on the market can boast about a lake with clear waters—in fact, most can’t. This pristine water quality enhances the beauty of lakefront life, and provides an incomparable setting for all water-based activities.

Now if you’re thinking “Putting up my Lake Keowee home for sale, are you out of your mind?” I get it, I really do. After all, who would want to sell their home in this area? (Unless you’re just upgrading to a bigger house or a home with a private dock, that is.) But if you’ve been toying with the idea, now might just be the time to act.
