The exterior of Thompson’s former tombs is clad in rectangular beige and gray stone and topped with a gray roof. Inside, the home has an open floor plan, honey-colored wooden floors, the occasional gray accent wall and recessed lighting.
A wildly beautiful room contains a living room, dining room and kitchen. The whole place is bathed in natural light, thanks to a series of floor-to-ceiling windows that also provide fantastic views of the lake. The living room is visually anchored by a large fireplace framed by calacatta quartz, which no doubt comes in handy during the cold winters in the northern United States. A sliding door gives access to the patio.
In line with the airy open floor plan, the gourmet kitchen is completely open, so hosts can entertain their guests and cook at the same time, à la Julia Child. And any chef will be impressed by the large island with its farmhouse sink, white quartz countertops, whitewashed quartz backsplash, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and an industrial-sized refrigerator for storing pregame (and afterparty) snacks. And for the eager syringe, the home also has a massive wet bar – with an aquarium, no less – plus a temperature-controlled wine room.
The spacious main suite has a small seating area, large windows overlooking the lake and a private balcony. The spa-like master bathroom has a large tub, double sinks and a free-standing steam shower with a snazzy black-and-white tiled accent wall. For visitors there are three guest rooms, plus an in-room suite with kitchenette for longer stays.
The listing is held by Linda Musarra at Chestnut Hill Realty.
This mansion in Ohio is not the only property Thompson wants to unload – he is also trying to sell a sprawling Los Angeles home for $ 8.5 million. In the offseason, he and his girlfriend Khloe Kardashian currently live in a $ 10 million property in Hidden Hills, California.
