We literally stumbled upon a property in the Gig Harbor area that had a for sale sign on it with Mike’s name. We called him and he was in Hawai’i at the time (on the tail end of a much-deserved vacation I’m sure), and he was flying back into town the next day — unfortunately, we were leaving town the next day. So we communicated via phone and email for the next few weeks and made the purchase of the home without ever stepping into it until the final walkthrough. Crazy, I know. But Mike was great. He was always available and extremely responsive, and someone who we fully trust. We have purchased several homes in California (not all at once!) but we’re new to home ownership in Washington, and he was very helpful. His love for the area (and his knowledge of the area) is clear, and I’m so happy that we found him. I can’t recommend him more highly.
After WWII Old Man Hennington bought an army barracks and floated it into Gig Harbor Bay, placed it on the waterfront and rented it as an apartment building.
In 1982 Bruce Steel remodelled the barracks (completely rebuilt except for a few walls) but had to stay within the footprint of the structure. It is now known as Hennington Place
What a great development! The units are right on the water’s edge and you actually get the feeling that you are on a boat. They have a Marina out in front with their own boat slips and the views of the harbor are fascinating.
These condos are in town on Harborview Drive near many shops and places to eat. It’s really easy to walk outside for the morning paper, a latte, and a bagel and then sit on your deck and watch the harbor come to life. Now that’s a fun lifestyle.
