136 Alice Howell Ln, Leesville, SC is on Lake Murray, SC and less than 28 mi from the main campus of Lexington Medical Center, Columbia Metro Airport or downtown Newberry, SC. The home is situated on an almost ½ acre lot overlooking a large, quiet cove across from a 547 acre parcel owned by Dominion Energy, the entity that manages Lake Murray. It’s perfect for paddle boarding and kayaking in your front yard, but only a few lots away from big waters of Lake Murray.
With over 500 miles of shoreline and 50,000 acres of recreational water, Lake Murray, known as the jewel of South Carolina, is home to many annual events including professional bass fishing tournaments, sailing regattas, Tour of Homes and Independence Day fireworks displays. With an average temperature ranging from 56 degrees in January to 92 degrees in July, Lake Murray visitors and residents enjoy a perfect climate for year-round outdoor recreation. The most popular fishing is for large-mouth bass, striped bass, crappie and catfish. Timberlake Country Club, the only golf course located ON Lake Murray, and open for public play, is practically straight across the lake from 136 Alice Howell Lane. 136 Alice Howell Ln is simply a slice of heaven!
This property has black powder coated metal fencing and entrance gate across the front and black chain link along both sides. There is a private boat ramp and dock. The current owners have done extensive remodeling, opening up the kitchen to the living area, installing new formica counters, painting kitchen cabinets, and leveling floors and installing new laminate flooring. The washer and dryer used to be in the main level bathroom (hookups remain), but they were moved to a large lower level closet. The main level bathroom is undergoing renovation. Upstairs, 2 bedrooms share a bath. A new barn door is being installed for the closet. There are new ceiling fans and light fixtures throughout. Downstairs, new ceiling tiles were installed.
The septic pump was replaced and a cut off valve for the alarm was added. The roof was new in 2018. The screened porch and deck on the main level and the covered porch on the lower level are extensions of the living space. Ceiling fans and comfy seating make these the ideal spots to view magnificent sunrises over Lake Murray in the mornings and fireflies at night. The lower level could easily be made into an in-law suite…just needs a mini kitchen. With such a minor modification, 136 Alice Howell Ln would be perfect as a vacation rental and primary residence or weekender. A 1 year AHS home warranty should add to the comfort level of purchasing. 136 Alice Howell Ln offers a rare opportunity to explore endless possibilities for owning on Lake Murray!
This home is zoned for Lexington School District Three, home of 2018 Palmetto’s Finest: Batesburg-Leesville Elementary School.
