Why Build On Lake Keowee?
Lake Keowee is well known for its emerald blue waters and Blue Ridge Mountain views. Located in both Pickens and Oconee Counties in South Carolina, Lake Keowee is a true mountain lake. The lake is a man-made reservoir created for Duke Energy’s use and for local recreation, and is fed by Lake Jocassee, a nearby mountain-fed reservoir. Lake Keowee is made up of over 300 miles of shoreline and measures 18,000 acres in size.The cool, blue waters of Lake Keowee are a welcome reprieve from the summer heat.
Lake Keowee’s location and temperate, four-season climate make it an ideal getaway for a second home. Many Lake Keowee vacationers decide to move here, especially following the pandemic and expanded remote work possibilities. As you consider your Lake Keowee home builder, consider which area of Lake Keowee you’ll build in. Lake Keowee is located less than an hour from popular, charming Greenville, South Carolina. Twenty minutes from Lake Keowee you’ll find Seneca and Clemson, two South Carolina towns that Clemson University calls home. While Lake Keowee is a quiet getaway, its proximity to Upstate South Carolina towns and cities makes it ideal for primary or second home living. Greenville / Spartanburg International Airport is located just over an hour from Lake Keowee and provides domestic and international service to virtually any destination in the world.
Morgan-Keefe Builders has built luxury custom homes in this area for decades. Our commitment to quality and open communication with our clients is unwavering. We have built many second or third homes for clients who live far from the build site and we strive to ensure our build process puts them at ease. As our founder Malcolm Morgan has said, “We try to approach every project as if we’re going to live there.”
Where To Build On Lake Keowee
Lake Keowee’s size and location mean you can choose from lake front, lake view, elevated mountain view, or secluded wooded lots to build your Lake Keowee home. There are many established developments to choose from and there are always new opportunities to build as time passes. Lake Keowee home builders have focused on lower-density, single-family homes, which has preserved the beauty and privacy of the lake. Despite the limited inventory market Upstate South Carolina is experiencing, you can still find the perfect place to build your Lake Keowee home.
