Homestead in style on this 2.5-acre, fully-fenced, hobby farm in Gig Harbor. From the array of the landscape to the 2017 studs-out remodeled Modern Farmhouse, every inch of this 2.5-acre farm is a reflection of creativity and pride of ownership. Welcome to the farm!
This home with ties to the late songwriter William Carey is a canvas ready to inspire its next artist and was placed on the schedule for the Gig Harbor Garden Tour.
For those who desire self-sufficiency, this property has it all. It has one small barn, one large barn with 50 amp service, 3 livestock stall stables with tack room outdoor arena, 3 fenced paddocks to house the farm animals. A fenced vegetable garden with raised planters and irrigation, landscape lighting, and a mature orchard with a 100+-year-old Black Walnut tree make this property a gardener's paradise.
The owner-designed 2017 remodeled Modern Farmhouse was not only stripped to the studs but the roof was removed and reframed to reflect traditional architecture. Other features include cement siding, private well w/ whole house filter system, recirculating pump, tankless water heater, HVAC with heat pump, radiant floor heating in the master bath, infrared sauna, central vac, and surround sound.
The interior finishes include ship-lap paneling, tongue and groove ceilings, wainscot, hardwood flooring, tile/engineered flooring, carpet, crown molding, and both wood/gas burning fireplaces.
The majestic view of the barn from the kitchen window and the calming views of Ray Nash Valley from the upper-floor bedroom windows make gatherings in this home truly memorable. Unique.
