About Kathryn Wilson or Brooke Hanson

We have lived on Lake Kampeska for sixteen years. This area of Kampeska boasts the best sandy beach on the lake. Our children and grandchildren also live in the neighborhood and can be seen enjoying all the lake has to offer.

Kathryn Wilson or Brooke Hanson purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathryn Wilson or Brooke Hanson chose Watertown

We bought this home because it reminded us of our farm house near Redfield, SD. All of the original oak woodwork, wood burning fireplace, oak floors and spacious, tree filled lot are some of the reasons we had to have it. We live across the street from our rental property.

What makes this house unique

This older two-story home was built in 1919. It has original hardwood floors and many, oak built-ins throughout the home. Enjoy the view of the lake from the ten foot window seat. Exquisite craftsmanship is showcased throughout. The kitchen has been updated with new cabinetry, granite countertops, island and gas stove.

Beautiful country Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with wood floors throughout, tons of windows to let the light in. Everything we needed to celebrate big family Christmas. Clean, quiet area with close access to the lake. The house was clean, had all the amenities we could wish for. Would stay again!
