Sunshine, sand, and glorious alpine views–what more could a person desire in a family vacation home? This Coastal Cove House offers outdoor luxury for the summer and cozy, scenic comfort for the winter.
This Gig Harbor home was designed for outdoor entertaining. A spiral staircase leads from the second floor of this family vacation home to its impressive ocean-side backyard. Guests can sail out into the Puget Sound, rinse off in the outdoor shower, then savor a scrumptious halibut fillet fresh off the covered BBQ. When the warmth lingers in the summer, resident vacationers can lounge on the deck and bask in the sunset.
Inside, the common living spaces invite the outdoor beauty into the comfort of the home. The windows above the cabinets send light into a bright, modern kitchen. White cupboards and sand-colored countertops keep the space feeling coastal, while a reclaimed wood bar adds character. Dramatic up-lighting draws the eyes towards the dynamic, curved ceilings.
The open-concept living room completes this family vacation home with exquisite views of the Cascades. The kitchen flows seamlessly into the living and dining areas. Cream colored sofas gather around a stately stone fireplace and the dining room table sits under elegant, peach-colored lights. The greatest part of this space, however, is its breakfast nook, which provides homeowners with a stunning, circular view of the ocean beyond. Whether summer or winter, guests can enjoy the local beauty from the cozy comfort of the living room!
