Recently, REALTOR® Martin Miller worked with a couple of homebuyers to purchase this stunning home. Not only does this property offer a picturesque, park-inspired outdoor setting with plenty of space for gardening, entertaining, play and more, but the warm and welcoming indoor setting shows off a large layout as well. A couple of this home’s top highlights include a view of the Lay Inlet from the master bedroom, and a close proximity to Voyager Elementary, Kopachuck Middle School, and Gig Harbor High School.
