One can rarely find both a beautiful, updated home AND a beautiful lot with breathtaking views of Lake Murray for under $500,000. THIS IS IT! This 2300 square foot home was built on .63 acres in 2008 and has a concrete paved driveway and large, side-entry garage. A concrete path leads to the front door, which is flanked by two-story columns. Enter the foyer and your eye is immediately drawn to the family room’s wall of windows, which showcase the magnificent views of Lake Murray.

To the right of the family room is the kitchen, breakfast area, screened porch, half bath with free-standing wrought iron sink and laundry room and to the left is the owners’ suite.
