Seneca Real Estate

Seneca is a town of a little more than 8,000 on the southern end of Lake Keowee. You can find most of us on (or in!) the lake during warmer weather and heading over to Clemson University when football season rolls around.

If you’re checking out the area for the first time, you’ll want to head to downtown Seneca to Ram Cat Alley and check out the local shops and restaurants. Locally-owned speciality shops, cozy restaurants and the local radio station all call this street home. While you’re learning your way around town, be sure to look for the various painted cats and take part in our “sCATenger Hunt!” Should you happen to stop by on a Thursday night between April and October, you’ll find live music and dancin’ in the streets as Jazz on the Alley takes over! Dine al fresco to some fresh tunes and get your boogy shoes on!

Nature lovers can head to South Cove Park if they want to stay in town, but the surrounding county offers a smattering of hiking trails, waterfall routes, rivers to fish and breathtaking mountain views.

The city hosts several events throughout the year, ranging from a Fourth of July celebration to SenecaFest in May, a monthly cruise-in featuring glamorous vintage cars, mud runs to test your physical and mental endurance and several 5Ks (and a marathon!) if you’d like to stay out of the dirt 😉

Art lovers can check out the Blue Ridge Arts Center, located in a beautiful former church, and check out the exhibits or try to catch a class or two. Arts off the Alley is just off Ram Cat Alley and features local art, pottery and other handmade goods from local artists. You can also pick up a paintbrush at Paint Play Studio downtown or, if you’d rather enjoy live theater, head over to Oconee Community Theatre to catch a show!
