What We Love: This South Carolina mountain home is embedded into a hillside to maximize its lakeside views. We are loving the unassuming exterior from the front that completely opens up at the rear of the home. An extensive deck provides outdoor living throughout most of the year, soaking in the tranquility of the water. The swimming pool is the show-stopper of this home, appearing to spill over the hillside and into the lake.
