Designed by the late local architect, Alan Liddle, the main house features 4,464 sq. ft. of elegant Gig Harbor waterfront living. The current owner will miss the:

"Spectacular sunsets over the Olympic Mountains and soaring eagles to earth bound deer, squirrels and acrobatic fish." 

Past the foyer the living room greets you with stunning views of Hales Passage through the atrium windows. Interior details such as the vaulted wood wrapped ceilings, and handsome propane fireplace set the tone. 

Breathtaking views continue into the dining room. Let the party move outside on the entertainment size deck, including a covered portion allowing you to soak in the salt air and watch the tides ebb and flow no matter the weather. 

Back inside continue into the elegant chef's kitchen where the views continue! 

Crisp white cabinets, gleaming hardwood floors, solid surface counters, and high end appliances are sure to please even the most discerning eye. Just beyond the kitchen is a atrium style eating nook with access to the deck. 

Upstairs you will find a true master retreat. Soft ambient lighting, a propane fireplace, and breathtaking views … imagine waking up to this every day. 

The master retreat includes two dressing areas, a walk in closet, and a dedicated shoe closet. 

The spa like master bathroom has a jetted tub, and separate shower for relaxing. Or, venture onto the private deck and let your worries soak away in the hot tub while watching the sun slip behind the Olympic Mountains. 

There is also a spacious office on this level with more breathtaking views. 

Furnished theater room with a projector is a great spot to watch your favorite sporting team, or enjoy a movie on the sometimes dreary Pacific NW days. 

The daylight walkout basement has a spacious family room with a propane fireplace, three additional bedrooms, and a bathroom. 

Walk out of the lover level family room and out onto the patio. Wind your way down the path to the beach and boathouse for some maritime fun! 

What treasures will you find on the beach today? The length of the waterfront is bulk headed, and although poor quality, the boathouse exists. 

Venture back up from the beach and you'll find the 1,826 sq. ft. guest house with a 2 car attached garage. There is plenty of room for all of your visitors here! It could also be a wonderful artistic retreat, the perfect spot for the in-laws, or rent it out for extra income! The possibilities are endless! 

The living room features beautiful tongue and groove wood ceilings, and wood wrapped windows. Step out onto the deck and enjoy the lush landscaping! 

Well equipped kitchen with lovely territorial views. 

The rec room also opens onto the deck and is wired for 220 service as it was used as an artistic retreat and the owners previously had a kiln. It would also make an tranquil yoga studio, craft room, or home office. There is a bedroom and full bathroom with laundry on the main floor. 

Upstairs the gorgeous woodwork continues and you will feel as though you are in the trees from the many unique windows. There is also a bedroom and attached 3/4 bathroom off the loft. 

Although you'll feel as though you're always on vacation at this spectacular waterfront home you're only a few minutes away from all the major amenities. Uptown Gig Harbor is a quick 7 minute drive to over 30 shops, specialty stores, and restaurants. Enjoy a steaming bowl of Pho from Lele or dine at the always popular Monctezuma'sLaunch your boat at the county operated launch off 10th Street NW or fly your personal plane out of the Tacoma Narrows Airport. If you're not a pilot the HUB at Gig Harbor sits on the tarmac and offers unparalleled views of a working airport and is 5 minutes away. If you need to pick up that last minute item for dinner or to fill the boat up before dropping it in the water there is no need to venture into town, you can stop by Anderson's, a general store on your way home.
