Real Estate

Century-old style flourishes in this stunning lakeside cottage

Bordered by the water on three sides, this peninsula on South Carolina’s Lake Keowee, might be the perfect place to build a summer retreat. Inspired by childhood memories, owner Kay Stanley’s dream of building a place that echoed her grandparent’s cabin came together by combining antique flair with innovative modern design. Touring this cottage is like taking a trip back in time, but with all of today’s modern conveniences. And, like all stylish architecture, it’s filled with reclaimed and repurposed materials, which add some authentic history to the cottage’s charm.
