Prepare yourself for the ultimate in luxury and quality living. You are going to be amazed with the presentation of this Craftsman Lodge, Waterfront Home of 7228 square feet. This is a one-of-a-kind design by Calvin Gasway; in consultation with the original and only owner. You won't find a square inch where anything was compromised. This property on Wollochet Bay offers the absolute best in living and entertaining, both inside and out.

Starting with the unique custom construction; you should note that there are very few interior walls impeding the open floor plan concept of both the main and lower floors. In fact, they truly feel like the same area with a large two-story opening between each. The un-impeded interior view, from one end to the other, is approximately 80 feet. You’ve never seen anything like it!  This was achieved by engineering the strength of the home in the outside walls supporting three stories and spacious contiguous areas.

When you approach the front of the home, you will see stone and tile accents. The front doors were custom crafted in Mexico and upon entering, lead you immediately to the railing that reveals the open floor below. All windows in the house are clad steel and all French doors are Milgard.

Every surface inside the home is natural; either wood, granite, slate or marble. The main floor stretches the entire length of the house and features Brazilian cherry floors that you will find throughout much of the interior. To the left of the front entry is a family room with one of four decks overlooking the waterfront. Here you will find a lovely fireplace and lots of windows on 3 walls. To the right is a large dining area and a kitchen, literally designed by a chef. You will find French doors to the large central deck, built with Ipaya hardwood.

There is a Viking Professional line package of appliances, a Miele steam oven, 6 burner and flat-top professional cook top, a 100-year-old solid wood butcher block and granite countertops everywhere. Sit at the eating bar overlooking the entire cooking space. The oven features a separate warmer drawer and above the oven is a state-of-the-art, Monogram microwave/convection oven.  

You will love the built-in Miele espresso maker that is there for you every morning. Next to this incredible kitchen is a large formal dining room where French doors lead to the third deck on this floor. Completing the water side of this vast space is the Pompeii powder room, accented in great colors and slab marble half walls. Towards the back of the home is the laundry room plus a main floor bedroom with its own bath. From here, French doors take you to your own little courtyard built especially for this room. Finally, from this back area of the home, you can also access the three-car garage.

The extensive railings on the main floor, leading to the lower floor, are all handmade... Every single piece! All trim in the home is magnificent vertical grain fir. A gorgeous staircase takes you to the lower level where to the left you will find a beautiful library crafted in cherry cabinets and slate. Straight ahead, you will immediately find yourself in a large gathering area; standing in front of an open two-story stone, wood burning fireplace, and an adjacent two story alcove of sky wall windows. Tucked away from this area is the media room with hookups ready for projection television or the already cabled on-wall flat screen. There is plenty of room for large sectionals and everything is wired for surround sound. In fact, there is a separate media closet ready for your sophisticated AV system.

This floor also has a massive open area big enough for a pool table, tons of furniture and the existing authentic restaurant wet bar and stools with space for a keg refrigerator. Completing the bottom floor is a large sewing room or non-conforming bedroom, with French doors to a lower patio. You will also find a gorgeous bathroom with extensive tile work of Jurassic stone and walk in shower that is accessed from both the common area and from this extra room. This lower floor has 4 complete sets of French doors to the water side of the home. When you see the mechanics room you will also notice a 119-gallon hot water heater amongst the other easy-access systems.

The upper floor of the home is completely shut off from the common areas of the rest of the structure. Here, you will find two waterside bedrooms; both with built in seating and views to the bay below. The main vaulted bathroom on this floor has a walk-in shower with no doors, a jetted tub, double vanities and all constructed with extensive tile work. Also, check out the convenient towel warmer installed on the wall.  The outside hall from these two bedrooms has a nice sitting area, just in front of the primary bedroom suite.

A Craftsman lodge would not be complete without a beautiful vaulted primary bedroom featuring a floor to ceiling stone fireplace (similar to the main floor and can be either gas or wood burning).  Of course, there are French doors to the highest of the four decks that has great views to the lower yard and Wollochet Bay. There is also an office area in this room separated by the walls that house a large, open, walk-in closet.  All the extra trim work is stored in the home should you ever want to put a door in this spot.

The attached bathroom to this Suite is masterful with built in seating, large windows on two walls and a jetted tub overlooking the view. Here you will also find a semi-circular glass block walk-in shower with double shower heads and body jets.  This bath also has a towel warmer and extensive tile work throughout. Back down the hall towards the stairs will take you to the backside of the upper floor. This is where you will find the fourth bedroom that has double closets. Continuing down this back hallway, takes you to the final room. Step up and into an amazing bonus room. You won't believe how big this area is!  The usage possibilities for this space are endless. Multiple furniture arrangements are easily accommodated, and a convenient interior stairway takes you down from this room to an outside entrance. This makes the main floor bedroom an area that can access this part of the home separately.

Your location is just 5 minutes away from shopping, medical and restaurants / entertainment. There is no other waterfront location in Gig Harbor that is as close to this many amenities.
