4-Bedroom, 3.25-Bath Craftsman with Large Back Deck in Highly Desired Corner of Gig Harbor

Nestled in a picturesque and highly desired corner of Gig Harbor, this 4-bedroom, 3.25-bath Craftsman sits on a secluded corner lot, surrounded by a fully-fenced yard, fruit trees and ample garden space. Skylights, bay windows and vaulted ceilings give this 3-floor home architectural appeal and aesthetic charm both inside and out. Generous deck space and an outdoor hot tub/spa turn this lush yard into an oasis of relaxation any time of year. Located at 5414 43rd Ave NW, Gig Harbor 98335, this 2,762-sq.-ft. residence is listed at $474,950.

Step inside to the comfortable formal living area and you’ll breathe a sigh of relief: this space was designed to help you unwind. Sunlight streams in through large bay windows, both here and in the attached dining space. Plush carpeting makes for a quiet, cozy scene, and leads to the home’s updated kitchen, complete with granite countertops, a large island with bar-style seating, and views of the large back deck. Attached to the kitchen sits the home’s second dining area, as well as an informal living space. Whether you’re sitting down to a big family meal or cooking up popcorn for movie night, this home offers plenty of space to entertain.

 

Upstairs, the home’s generous master suite features a comfortable attached bathroom with double sinks and a large soaking tub. A built-in ceiling fan ensures added comfort throughout the summer months, and a large walk-in closet leaves plenty of space for even the largest wardrobes. Vaulted ceilings in each of the home’s upstairs bedrooms add classic architectural detail, and versatile finishes ensure you can personalize the space to create your own home-sweet-home. In the daylight basement, an antique stove will keep you warm throughout the cooler months and a secondary kitchen space, complete with a dishwasher, means you’re ready to host guests and throw parties without hesitation.

But this home’s true crowning glory is it’s impressive back deck and lush yard. Partially covered and accessible through sliding glass doors in both the kitchen and basement, this large deck is the ideal space for hosting a barbecue, sunbathing, or enjoying a meal under the clouds. Just below, and protected from the elements, sits a large hot tub/spa where you can wind down after a long day, year round. Pets can roam free in this fully-fenced backyard, and a large paved driveway and 2-car garage mean you’ll have plenty of space to house recreational equipment, or even an RV.
