GIG HARBOR — A home with a Northwest contemporary design was recently completed at Bayview at Gig Harbor. Featuring the builder’s Ames floor plan, the home offers buyers an opportunity to tour a completed home before personalizing their own selection from the ground up.

“The Ames is our first finished home in this neighborhood,” says Kristi Brewer, the community sales manager at Bayview at Gig Harbor. “This is a fantastic home with a beautiful stone and cedar façade, surrounded by mature evergreens on two sides for a sense of privacy.

“Homeowners can visit and tour the fully staged home to get a feel for what living in this exceptional home design would be like,” she says.

The Ames design features 2,976 square feet of living space and a two-car garage. A covered porch leads into a great room surrounded by windows that fill the space with natural light. The great room boasts hardwood flooring throughout, a modern Rave fireplace ringed with floor-to-ceiling stacked stone, and access to an outdoor living space with a patio and gas fire pit.

At-home chefs will delight in the Ames’ kitchen, which is appointed with a gas range, quartz countertops, four-seat center island and KitchenAid appliances.

“This home has one of the largest walk-in pantries I’ve seen,” says Brewer. “It’s perfect for wholesale shopping trips.”

There is also a main-floor bedroom with three-quarter bath, offering versatility as a guest quarters or home office.

Another highlight of the home is its upstairs loft, which provides extra living space where friends and family can gather and entertain.

The Ames features three upstairs bedrooms, including a master-bedroom suite. The master bedroom has two walk-in closets, as well as a spa-like bathroom with a walk-in shower with dual shower heads, a double vanity with quartz counter space, and a deep soaking tub that overlooks mature evergreen trees.

Bayview at Gig Harbor includes 40 homes with a variety of two- and three-story designs. Some homes are situated on oversize homesites with large backyards and greenbelt backdrops.

“We have a number of quick-delivery homes that may be finished by the spring, which is another reason to tour the community now,” says Brewer. “We also have presale homes that afford the opportunity for personalization, with complimentary consultation from a designer at the Kirkland Design Studio. Homebuyers can select custom paint colors, hardware finishes, lighting and home-automation features.”

Homeownership at Bayview at Gig Harbor includes a complimentary one-year social membership at Canterwood Golf and Country Club, which is located across the street from the community. Membership includes access to a 24-hour fitness center, swimming pool, tennis courts, dining spaces and social events, as well as discounts on golf fees.

For commuters, Bayview at Gig Harbor affords access to Tacoma via nearby Highway 16. Connections to Seattle are available via Kitsap Transit’s fast ferry in Bremerton, which is less than 30 minutes away.
