I am particularly smitten with lake homes and mountains. In South Carolina, that means the northwest corner of the state.

Lake Hartwell is a huge impoundment on the SC/GA border. Living on the GA side would be kinder on your pocketbook. Clemson has a great university for culture and 1st class athletics, and he has the beautiful Lake Hartwell running through the middle of town.

Lake Keowee is just a few miles from Clemson-- just north of Seneca.

And you have Lake Greenwood--east of Greenwood.

The only problem with South Carolina and lakes is that ad valorem taxes on boats in this state are inhumanly large.

We live on the Tennessee River, with 650 miles of navigable river running thru TN, GA, AL, MS and KY. Many incredible residential places to live on this river too.

I would throw in Santee, Vance, and Bonneau, and even Moncks Corner, even though this is a growing city at this point.

I had a listing a few years ago in Vance, on Lake Moultrie, with a dock, 1.2 acres of land, large 3 car garage/workshop in the back yard, 3800 sq foot brick home built in the 2000's for the low 400's.
You can find similar properties in those more rural towns for just about any price point you desire. A lot of them are even used as short term rental investments.

I agree, i was going to say Santee as well. I live about 15 mins from there. I love Lake Marion! Its huge with great fishing and has a beautiful state park there and Santee is small with a small town feel but has some big box amenities and just about everything you need close by. I95 is there also to be able to jump on that to go to other places quickly enough. I don't know about any airports though.

Alot of people seem to like Lake Bowen in Inman , It's a good sized lake , but can get crowded . If you're open to just outside of the state , I would recommend Lake Lure in NC . Theres also Lake Lanier in Landrum,SC. Landrum and Inman are about 35 minutes from GSP. Lake lure is about 40 minutes from Asheville airport.

Lake Lure is wonderful, but it too can get very busy.

Apparently, money is no object but basically what would your housing requirements be? # beds, # baths, #sf? Maximum price you want to pay?

There are a lot of lakes — Jocassee is my favorite — but the housing prices, amenities, etc vary greatly.
