Beauty defined is how one would describe 302 Bay Hill Drive. Once recognized as House of the Year by Builder Magazine, this impeccably designed home is also lovingly referred to as "La Bonne Vie", French for "The Good Life". The good life is found here featuring the highest quality detail to match it's expansive open water setting, this masterpiece offers luxury and comfort in every selection with loads of intricate detail for the discerning buyer. There is something for everyone in the numerous entertaining areas both inside and out. Upon entry, a vaulted great room tongue and groove accented and a marble surround natural gas fireplace greets with crystal blue lake waters as a backdrop. The gourmet kitchen features custom cabinets and granite counters with copper sink, built in coffee station for fresh brewed latte or just a single steaming cup of your favorite brew and dual fuel cooking in a six-burner cooktop with griddle. Close by is a walk-in pantry and spacious laundry offering extra storage for small appliances or space as an alternate butler pantry. On the lakeside of the kitchen and breakfast area is the classic staple in lake living, the screened porch. This gracious gathering favorite features an octagonal shape perfect for taking in the 180 degree water views this spectacular property has to offer. Just below, the screen porch overlooks almost 2,000 additional square feet of outdoor living space, complete with a outdoor fireplace, plasma screen television and outdoor kitchen. This outdoor kitchen is no ordinary grill station. It is a complete kitchen featuring Alfresco appliances - a 42-inch gas grill with a built-in fish fryer, a sideburner wok ring, a sink, bar, refrigerator with kegorator and trash receptacle. The appliances are housed in a steel frame structure with exterior stone that matches the nearby patio pillars. The water feature offers a four-foot wide rivulet that trickles along for 50 feet flowing over multiple falls. Back inside, opposite the living room, is the owner suite with private walkout to the rear wrap around deck. A short hallway leads to the owner suite bath featuring a barrel ceiling made of narrow oak slats highlighted by inset lighting. Flanked by two large custom walk in closets, the bath offers a focal point claw foot tub with individual vanity spaces and a walk-in marble shower with multiple heads. The upper balcony is highlighted by library style bookshelves, a spacious walk in cedar closet and an entire guest suite located above the garage. With a small alcove and built-in dining table, it comes complete with its own full bath, refrigerator and microwave. Below on the terrace level is a large secondary living/recreation room that opens out to the patio and grill area with an unparalleled view of Lake Keowee. Highlighted by wood beams, a stone fireplace and rich wood bar. A theater room with sound system and projector are great for watching a classical movie or favorite sporting event. Two en-suite bedrooms are included on this level, both with wide water views from the entire lakeside. On the left tucked adjoining one bath is an exercise room featuring a walk-in cedar sauna. The walkway leads to a private covered slip dock with ironwood decking, seating area, and PWC lifts. Extra landscape features include accent lighting, irrigation from the lake, a putting green and sandy beach area great for little swimmers of the family.
