226 Plantation Pointe Road, Ridgeway, South Carolina, 29130
The exclusive, secluded waterfront community known as Plantation Pointe on Lake Wateree consists of lots sized from 5 to 20 acres and has seen a good number of high dollar homes built or currently under construction. One of the most desirable of these properties was completed about twelve years ago on a 5.82 acre point lot with over 400 feet of water frontage. A long and winding driveway leads from the paved road, through a heavily wooded section of the property (providing occasional views of deer and other creatures).
The house itself is built on a concrete pad but is then elevated to what would normally be a second story level on cedar sided outside columns plus internal piers resting on the pad. The resulting lower level provides open sided but well protected storage space, an excellent workshop, space for the water pump, water softener and the electrical panels. It is an excellent protected parking lot for cars, lawn/garden equipment and other toys. For convenience, there is also a bathroom with shower on this lower level. The raised construction of the living quarters serves to provide incredible water views from much of the residential floor.
A formal door and hardwood stairway leads from the “garage” to the 2,868 square foot cedar sided residence level, opening into the cathedral ceilinged, hardwood floored great room that makes up the center of the home. The north side wall of this room incorporates the chef’s kitchen with its built in convection range and microwave, gas cooktop, refrigerator, dishwasher, moveable cabinet/island for entertaining, approximately 16 foot granite eat at counter (seats six comfortably) and work area with built in cabinets and shelving (pull out shelving) backed up by a large walk in pantry big enough to house a freezer or extra refrigerator along with more cabinetry. A formal dining area with even more cabinetry completes this side of the room.
The south side wall contains a wood burning fireplace, built in entertainment center with plenty of storage, a conversation or reading area and a music area with built in bookcases. Each side wall also has a doorway to the deck and balcony area that runs all along the outside of the west end of the great room. Both gable ends of the great room contain multiple fixed and operating windows that provide incredible views of the water and sunsets to the west and of the woods and other properties to the east. The south wing also has two good sized bedrooms (the larger of which also has a patio door opening onto the deck) and a shared hall bath with tiled floor.
The north wing of the home is the master suite with walk in closet, custom built in cabinetry with entertainment center, drawers and shelving. Patio door opens onto a private section of the deck. Sumptuous master bathroom with double vanities, linen closet, tiled floor and fully tiled shower with waterfall and tub. The entrance hallway leading into the north wing has concealed laundry facilities as well two large closets.
The deck which is the full width of the house is also reached by a large stairway leading up from a water side of the home which, facing west provides wonderful sunset views. A walkway leading from the foot of the stairs, to and through a comfortable patio area with large fire pit, ends at a covered dock with multiple boat moorings.
Lake Wateree is one of South Carolina’s oldest man-made lakes with over 13,000 acres. Plantation Pointe is on the northern third of the lake and thus is handy to I-77 and all that Columbia, South Carolina and Charlotte, North Carolina have to offer as well as being only about two hours to the mountains or to the Atlantic beaches.
