Escape to an enchanting Ralph Anderson-designed haven. This stunning estate feels like a private, tranquil retreat, tucked away from neighbors, surrounded by lush landscaping, and residing over the lovely waters of Gig Harbor's Gold Coast. With awe-inspiring interiors designed from the finest materials, like Canadian old-growth vertical grain hemlock, this home combines timeless elegance with the comfort of a storybook cottage. Gaze out onto heavenly views of Cutts Island and the Olympic Mountains through the homes’ floor-to-ceiling windows, inviting in natural light and creating a graceful indoor/outdoor flow. A chef’s kitchen, with a Thermador double oven and Sub-zero refrigerator, inspires grand plans of hosting as guests congregate in the adjacent dining area with direct access to the large deck. A wine closet, elevator, and built-in shelves with soffit lighting are just a few of the features that elevate day-to-day living. Ultimate serenity is found in the primary bedroom with a private balcony, spa-like ensuite with marble floors, countertops, and shower, and spacious walk-in closet. The sophisticated office with amazing water views and a roaring gas fireplace encourages both productivity and calm. Unwind in the media room, boasting a full bathroom and complete galley kitchen. Sited on two acres, featuring Japanese gardens designed by landscape architect R. David Adams, the property’s grounds evoke the sense of stepping out of reality and into a fairytale. The tone for this mesmerizing property is set the minute you cross the entry’s bridge over a pond complete with a waterfall. Gaze at the ceramic tile roof made in Kyoto, Japan. Stone walkways and beguiling patios inspire Zen and promote the opportunity to find peace and wellness in your very own natural wonderland. Whether you’re meditating or enjoying a cup of coffee as you admire the brilliance of your surrounding trees, shrubs, and blossoming flowers, this waterfront retreat transports you to a world of magnificent beauty.
