Property Description

Marking the dramatic threshold of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Jocassee Gorges is an escarpment near South Carolina’s northern border where the terrain climbs 2000 feet within just a few miles. National Geographic magazine named Jocassee Gorges one of its 50 “Destinations of a Lifetime,†noting the wilderness location’s “views of spectacular waterfalls and large concentrations of rare plants.†Some 43,000 acres of this unique and diverse land are in a protected management area. 102 Granny Gear Road lies just beyond this preserve. With over 30 acres of varied woodlands, this property is a nature-lover’s utopia. It’s also home to a residence that marries modern elegance with rustic materials, creating the feel of an upscale lodge. But the real headliner is the Eastatoe River, cascading mere feet from the rear of the house. Dubbed the “stream of dreams,†the Eastatoe is one of the state’s best-known trout streams—the current owners have even watched black bears fish its waters—and the sounds of it tumbling over massive granite boulders echo throughout the home’s outdoor spaces. Past a private gated entrance and ambling drive, the home presents a stone and cedar shake facade. The interior opens to a large great room with massive timber gables and beams, stone fireplace, and large expanses of glass overlooking the river. The open kitchen is equipped with GE Profile appliances and custom-made hickory cabinetry. The master suite includes a plank ceiling, and, in the bath, a pebble-floored double shower and clawfoot tub in a window-lined alcove. Main-level rooms open to a rear covered deck and adjoining side screened porch. A turned staircase reaches the lower level, where rough-sawn shiplap lines the walls of the broad family room. Two bedrooms and a full bath welcome guests. Outside, a stone-floored terrace leads to a staircase that descends the short distance to the riverbank. The detached double garage is oversized and reached via a deck walkway. Above is a guest suite with wood walls and ceiling, as well as a comfortably sized bath. Granny Gear Road is wonderfully close to Lakes Jocassee and Keowee (where boat slips are available for rent), convenient to local towns and the city of Greenville, and a short drive from Clemson University.
