Are you looking for a weekend home on Lake Keowee and don't want to spend money on a huge mortgage and high waterfront taxes? Then Backwater Landing may be the place for you. This community boasts views of Lake Keowee from all 132 cottages and there are boat slips available for lease too.
When you buy a cottage in this gated community, you own the shingles, siding, HVAC system, as well as the interior, and you lease the land that it sits on. This means your taxes will likely cost $1,000 - $1,500 (less if you live there full time) because you are paying taxes only on the structure, not the land. You also don't have the big mortgage payments that you would on a home that offers similar lake views and water access on Lake Keowee.
The 2016 regime fee at Backwater Landing is $470 per month and this covers the land lease, landscape maintenance, water supply, club house, walking trail, outdoor swimming pool, library, pool table, gym, kids play room, community dumpster, and the security of the gate.
If you think Backwater Landing might work for you, or someone you know, please contact Sharalyn Kluke at Lake Keowee Real Estate for more information. 864-888-7195 call or text, or email SharalynOnKeowee@gmail.com and check out the currently active listings at Backwater Landing. Life is better at the cottage!
