"We had looked and looked for a special place. As soon as we drove into the driveway, I knew this was it. I was home."  – Current Owner 

IMG_5042_3_4

Tucked away in the quaint maritime city of Gig Harbor just off Horsehead Bay Dr NW sits this stunning shy acre property overlooking Hales Passage filled with rare rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas, and lilacs that were brought from the second owner's homestead North Dakota in the 1930s. Steeped in history the English cottage was built by McAllister Moore, who was the namesake for the Moorelands plot. 

Holly Order Form

The Moores farmed strawberries and holly and shipped it nationally beginning in 1929. The current owners, the Nelsons, purchased the property in 1969 and continued the holly farm tradition, starting "The Holly Yard and Gardens" in the 1970s. Their sons, Eric and Brian, continued cutting holly for local businesses until 2012. Holly was cut and farmed on this property for nearly 88 years! 

Holy Yard Sign

IMG_5139_40_41

As you enter this historic home you are greeted by clear fir paneled walls from local mills, and handsome red oak flooring. The home was heated originally by a coal furnace, which has been since converted to forced air electric.

IMG_5084_5_6

Continue into the kitchen which overlooks the sunroom and patio. The original cabinets are intact. 

IMG_5060_1_2

A unique feature in the kitchen are the pull-out breadboard steps Mrs. Moore had installed to assist her in reaching the cupboards as she was very slight in stature. 

IMG_5066_7_8

The sunroom is fondly remembered as a gathering place for the Nelsons. Many wonderful meals and conversations were shared while overlooking the English garden. 

IMG_5045_6_7

Continue onto the sunny patio and you'll find yourself in a bird watcher's paradise. Migrating Cedar Waxwings, Robins, Humming Birds, Finches, and other birds pass through the property with the seasons. 

IMG_4997_8_9

The Nelsons cleared the property for the garage, garden, and circular drive. This was formally where some of the holly trees were located. 

YUN00010 - Copy

Historical touches are found throughout the property. The workbench in the garage was salvaged by Borgan's Lumber and is made from ship decking.

IMG_5231_2_3

Upstairs you'll find a nautical themed room that was added by the Nelsons. If the new owners added dormers, the view would be spectacular of Hales Passage, Fox Island, and a peek-a-boo view of Mt. Rainier

IMG_5119_20_21

IMG_5122_3_4

Make your way down to the community beach which is the perfect spot for picnicking, boating, beach walks, and sunset beach bonfires.

If you are looking for some more room to roam you're only 3.5 miles or a quick 9 minute drive from Kopachuck State Park, a 109 acre marine park with 5,600 feet of saltwater shoreline. You can also visit the Horsehead Bay public boat launch if you have a larger vessel. Stop into Arletta Store for fuel, ice for your cooler, or an ice cream cone on a summer day. They always have a smile waiting for you! Across the street is Hales Pass Park the home of Arletta Playfield, 2 outdoor tennis courts, and a community center.

Your guests may never want to leave this tranquil paradise. Watch boat traffic go by from the Day Island Yacht Club, kayaks, and paddle boarders while enjoying the stunning views. 

When the weather allows spill out onto the covered upper deck for a lovely meal alfresco while still being steps away from the kitchen. 

The well appointed, crisp white kitchen has island seating, solid surface counter tops, double ovens, and a Jenn-Air cook top / grill. If you don't feel like cooking jump in your boat that's moored in front and jet off to Boathouse 19 at the Tacoma Narrow's Marina. Or cruise under the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and head to Anthony's for fine dining,or Tide's Tavern, where they offer seasonal dockside service!  

Keep an eye on the deck and dock from the large kitchen window and covered deck. 

Upstairs is the private master suite with vaulted ceilings, skylights, a large walk in closet, private deck, gas propane fireplace, and five piece bathroom. 

Working from home doesn't sound so bad with views like this! The Tacoma Narrow Bridge is in the distance.

Well appointed five piece master bathroom. 

Take a dip in the jetted tub and let your worries wash away. 

Lower level family room that leads to the deck and has a cozy propane gas fireplace. 

Built in cabinets and a wet bar are ideal for entertaining! Not pictured are the 3/4 bathroom on the lower level and bedroom with access to the deck. The third bedroom is on the main floor as well as a full bathroom and the utility room. 

Step out onto the deck and enjoy the quintessential Pacific Northwest lifestyle this home offers! Tasteful landscaping, built in seating and planters. Watch eagles sore overhead and you may even see some friendly seals popping up to say hello!

Can you imagine mooring your boat at home? This dock provides a wonderful opportunity to keep your boat just steps away! 

Don't miss the detached 2 car garage with a separate living space below.

The separate living space is currently being used as an office, but could make a wonderful private fourth bedroom with an attached 1/2 bathroom. 

Looking back at the home from the dock.
