Floorplan and Lot Details:

Thompson II - Lot 3


The Thompson II keeps the same great layout as the original Thompson, but is about 400 square feet larger!  The extra square footage really is the icing on the cake for this well known floorplan, making it a popular seller in Emorywood and a great fit Lakewood.  This home has a formal dining room as well large front porch perfect for summer sitting.

3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths
1900 square feet

Stratford II - Lot 1

This Stratford II is also an enlarged version of one of our original Lakewood Bungalow homes. This incredibly popular plan gets even better with an extra 500 square feet.  We kept the private upstairs master suite, but we gained some extra elbow room throughout the first floor. While this will be the first Stratford II ever built, there is no doubt this new and improved design is sure to please!

3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths
1950 square feet
