The Thompson

The Thompson is a Craftsman/Prairie style farmhouse. An abundance of windows, stone and wood accents, and a spacious yet cozy sprawling floor plan work together to create a traditional all-American home built for lakefront living.

Open floor plan with the view in mind

Visbeen Architects utilized a unique open floor plan with a circulation pattern between the living room, master sitting room, master suite, kitchen and dining area. Therefore, offering maximum views of the lake as you move through the home. The porch area integrates Phantom motorized screens perfectly into its tapered columns, protecting the outdoor seating area from pests.
