Lake Murray is known as “The Jewel of South Carolina”. This man-made lake in Columbia, South Carolina, spans 48,000 acres and provides 620 miles of shoreline. It all adds up to countless ways to enjoy the great outdoors. From the best bass fishing around to boating, swimming, water sports, beaches and fun on the shore, Lake Murray is the place to be. Why not do more than vacation here? You can get the “Jewel” of lakeside living at Crystal Cove, McGuinn Homes’ community of energy-efficient, new construction homes.
Crystal Cove is situated on the northeastern side of Lake Murray, in the small town of Irmo. Although just 12 miles from Downtown Columbia, Irmo is a friendly and serene lakeside community of stately homes, green spaces, and locally-owned businesses where you’re treated like a friend, not a customer.
A community of luxury homes
We chose a location within walking distance of Lake Murray Marina to develop our community of luxury homes. Our portfolio of single-family homes features floor plans that range from 2,320 to 3,547 square feet of indoor living space.
The Cleveland is a popular design that offers versatile space and so many ways to customize it to your liking. As the largest floor plan for Crystal Cove, it presents four bedrooms—with an option for a fifth—and 4.5 baths. The flex room near the front entry could be used as a home office, formal living room, playroom, library, or hobby studio. The second-story loft adds another flex space that expands the opportunity in this home.
The Cleveland offers a luxurious, first-floor owner’s suite, with bay windows filling the large bedroom with natural light. We incorporated an oversized master bath and a closet that could be a room on its own.
A wealth of energy-efficient features
With all the luxuries included in this home (and all of our Crystal Cove homes), one of the most valuable features is its energy-efficiency. McGuinn Homes takes pride in the commitment to our hybrid homes. Our design, construction methods, materials, and appliances reflect the most advanced eco-friendly options. We use high-quality insulation, 14 SEER air conditioning system, an engineered roof system, and thermal windows to keep you comfortable while also conserving energy. The tankless gas water heater we install in our hybrid homes uses less energy and provides a better source of hot water when you need it—and lasts longer than conventional water heaters.
You could be living lakeside this summer!
