A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has come available at Paradise Passage Estate & Stables, a private and gated 14-acre estate situated upon 430 feet of low-bank waterfront on Fox Island. A tranquil tree-lined drive leads toward the stunning estate positioned to frame the inspiring views of the Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and Chambers Bay Golf Course, site of the 2015 U.S. Open. Life at the water’s edge comes together with a 175-foot deep-water dock with ample room for a yacht and water toys. Unrivaled outdoor spaces are perfect for both quiet evenings and large-scale entertaining.
The 4 bedroom, 4.75 bath main home exudes a sense of arrival with thoughtful finishes and appointments. Open the gorgeous handcrafted Honduras mahogany door and enter the living room and dining room, which are seamlessly connected to the outdoors and the spectacular covered patio overlooking the curated landscape, dock and beach. Endless possibilities for both in and outdoor intimate evenings, cocktail parties, holidays and more. Envision a friendly game of croquet amidst a summer cookout, a glass of wine beneath the twinkle of patio lights or summer s’mores cooked around the fire pit in the side yard after a day of aquatic adventures.
An Epicurean kitchen is primed to meet even the most ambitious of culinary endeavors, complete with a 6-burner Wolf range, double ovens, a grill top, custom commercial vent hood and granite slab counters. A center island with bar height seating serves as an excellent place for a quick breakfast on the go or appetizers during dinner parties, while a walk-in pantry keeps all the host needs within arm’s reach. An open concept flows effortlessly from the kitchen to the great room, with a massive stone fireplace extending toward soaring Cathedral ceilings and walls of windows to let the light—and breathtaking vistas—in.
The main floor master suite unfolds onto spectacular property and water view patio. A sumptuous en suite master bathroom features a free standing soaking tub, walk-in shower and dual sinks. Ascend the staircase to the upper level, where a billiards room and full bar afford the space needed for a lively game of pool or watching the big game on a Sunday. In addition, there are two bedrooms, and an in-home office for catching up on emails or working from home.
Guests will love to retreat to the one-bedroom guest house with vaulted ceilings, separate kitchen, living room with a cozy fireplace, sizable bedroom and full bathroom. Additional features of the estate include a five-stall barn with pastures, a 6 bay garage/shop with car lift and 12-foot RV door and full hook-ups. A separate building site on the property is ready to go should you wish to create your own Paradise Passage compound.
Consistently voted in the top 4 places in the country to retire while providing top schools, Gig Harbor’s Fox Island is a quiet community-oriented destination comprised of approximately 3,000 residents. Meet your neighbors at the local yacht club, small town post office and grocery store on the island, and access larger city services and shopping just a short distance from the Fox Island bridge. Embrace the island life without the need for a ferry and an easy commute just 1 hour and 15 minutes from downtown Seattle or Bellevue by automobile or 20 minutes by seaplane. Paradise Passage Estate & Stables is primed to suit the vision of its next steward, whether it’s a weekend getaway, primary residence or summer home.
