Paw Paw Point
Set upon a gently sloping peninsula reaching out into the northern waters of Lake Keowee, this 5,200 SF home offers an unparalleled vista from its waterfront site. The home forms a narrow bar stretched across the site to afford a spectacular view from every major space within. In response to its unique locale, the home features a private observatory. The solitary retreat, isolated from the remainder of the home, offers the broadest panorama available.
The homeowners desired a casual living environment expressed through a mountain vernacular design vocabulary, and the use of readily available indigenous rustic materials such as natural fieldstone and cedar shingles. Intimate alcoves, piazzas, woodwork, and fireplaces create a familiar, comfortable atmosphere throughout this traditional Shingle Style home. The resulting composition is a quiet retreat that fits seamlessly into its surrounding environment.
