Whether you’re a two-legged guest or a four-legged one, this 7,800-square-foot home has luxury space for man and his best friend(s). It’s curvy, bright and inviting.

The homeowners raise Westie show dogs and created a “Westie Wing” complete with dog showers, grooming areas, large kennels and more creature comforts. They also enjoy hosting family and guests so the home also includes a guest apartment on the lower floor.

The main home area includes three spacious bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a gourmet kitchen, an outdoor kitchen, and a formal dining room, living room and more. Every room in the house has one commonality — it captures the breathtaking views of either the waterfront or the stunning gardens.

“The house reflects their lifestyle,” said Jeff Wilbert of J. Wilbert Fine Homes in Gig Harbor. The couple is passionate about hosting large family gatherings, boating and the outdoors, and of course, their dogs. “This home is spectacular, but paired with the incredible landscape, it creates something very special.”

Meet the Team “To create a home such as this, it takes a team of compatible, experienced professionals working together along with a client that has the confidence in that team to design and build their dream home,” the contractor, Jeff Wilbert of J. Wilbert Fine Homes, said. He’s been building homes in the Gig Harbor area for more than 30 years. Other contributors are:
