A new lake house is underway at The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards, after The Cliffs company officially broke ground last week. Overlooking Lake Keowee and featuring minimalist and low-profile architectural lines, the lake house will include an indoor dining room, an open-air pavilion offering a flexible dining and entertainment space for events and weddings, and a patio dining area and bar.
“We are pleased to kick off a series of club-focused investments at The Cliffs by announcing plans for The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards Lakehouse,” said Will Culp, partner at South Street, which recently purchased The Cliffs.
“This project aligns strongly with our vision to take The Cliffs communities to new heights through a well-rounded, lifestyle-focused approach to the private club experience,” he said in a news release.
Designed by Paul Zugg of Signature Architects in Clemson, The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards Lakehouse will feature natural materials and colors that complement the Lake Keowee setting, the release said. The core elements of the structure — the pavilion and dining room — will be situated to provide views of the lake, taking advantage of natural light and southwestern breezes throughout the space. The pavilion space will feature wood screen walls that can be opened or closed. The patio bar and outdoor dining space will overlook the lake.
