It has lovely curb appeal with its manicured flower beds, white bench at entry, wired landscape lighting, paver paths, and red cedar pergola with swing. New additions to this one-owner home are nearly unending. The home has a full yard irrigation system with heads and drip lines. This system is practically free since water is pumped from the lake. There are wide gutters with downspouts and gutter helmets. There are hardwood floors in the main, open living area, tile in the kitchen and baths, and carpet in the bedrooms. Both main level baths have elevated, elongated toilets. All doors have lever door handles and there are rocker electric switches throughout.

The home has brand new Honeywell WIFI thermostats which can be controlled by one’s smart phone. There is a tankless Rinnai water heater.

The stain is golden maple with mocha glaze.

The gas logs are on remote control with temperature control. The downstairs bath was updated with new cabinets and granite-topped vanity. The master bath has been remodeled to include new cabinets with granite counter top and new floor to ceiling tile shower with built-in seat, grab bars, and wide glass door. There are ceiling fans in all bedrooms and FROG/bedroom #4. The home has custom 4” plantation shutters on all windows and the porch door.
The 12 x 26 porch has a custom window system with vinyl glazed windows and EzeBreeze cabana door. The screens are amazing in that they are thick enough to keep the ‘no-seeums’ out but provide 75% air flow and clear vision; they can be pushed up or down; and they stack in quarters. The screen porch is truly an extension of the living space and overlooks Lake Murray. The garage is a true 2-car garage and has shelving, cargo rack and work bench space. It has a utility sink, hose bib and water line for an ice maker. All recessed lights have LED bulbs. A buried propane tank, owned and serviced by Barnes Propane, provides gas for the fireplace logs and for the Weber grill which conveys. Another huge bonus is the Briggs and Stratton whole house backup 20kw generator with automatic transfer switch. This, too, is powered by propane.
Public water comes from Gilbert-Summit, but is managed by the Town of Batesburg-Leesville. Because sewage is discharged below grade, this home has a sewer lift pump which takes sewage to the line operated by the Town of Lexington. Electricity is provided by South Carolina Electric and Gas. Quality Plus services the HVAC. Arab Termite and Pest Control maintains the termite bond and provides quarterly pest treatment.
