~ Search Lake Keowee Waterfront & Interior Lots by Price Range ~
Let us help you find the best lakefront lot for your new home. We know your time is valuable and we honor that so, before you visit, we get topo maps from the County web site. This may tell us more than the listing photographs do. These searches include only lots marked as gently sloping or nearly level according to the listing agents, though this information may not be accurate.
For interior lots, please see Interior Lots by Price Range below.

Tips for Buying Lake Keowee Land
(A builder can help with all of this)
- Avoid an expensive mistake! Not every lot will be suitable for your house plan. Be sure to have your builder examine any lot before you buy or at least during your inspection period.
- Green water at the shoreline is deep; red or peach color is shallow. A permit or dock in place does not guarantee deep water. Duke doesn't consider depth when granting permits.
- A dock contractor can tell you if you are likely to get a permit from Duke for the dock you want.
- Steeper land means a more expensive foundation.
- Account for setbacks to be sure your house will fit. Counties have minimums but subdivisions may set their own! Our Lakefront Community pages have covenants, slideshows and videos, maps, plats, amenities and property searches.
- Most communities require Architectural Control Committee review of plans. We're sure you would agree that this protects your investment.
- Review the Duke Energy Shoreline Management Guidelines and Vegetative Buffer rules on our Lake Gallery page.
- Stay informed on sales trends on our Real Estate Sales Statistics for Lake Keowee page.

“I would like to take a moment to recommend Carol and Doug to anyone selling or buying a home in the Lake Keowee area. From the beginning of the process to the final closing I found the Pattersons to be detailed oriented, very responsive, and conduct their business with complete integrity. The result was a home sale that far exceeded our expectations!”
