Recently, REALTOR® James Fisher sold this gorgeous 3-bedroom home in Gig Harbor’s Wellington Ridge neighborhood. Located just north of Canterwood, this sought-after community offers its residents a long list of perks!

James wanted to take a moment to share exactly why people love Wellington Ridge so much, and here’s what the neighbors are saying:

1. Super close to commuting options.

Need to hop on Highway 16 to get around Gig Harbor, head south to Tacoma, or north to Bremerton? Good news—Highway 16 is just about a 6-minute drive away!

2. Opportunities for enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest are at your fingertips.

Whether you envision spending your weekend at the Canterwood Country Club Golf Course or hopping on your boat docked in Downtown Gig Harbor, you don’t have to drive far. Canterwood is a quick 4-minute drive from home, while Downtown Gig Harbor is only a 10-minute drive away.

3. A huge variety of dining options are nearby.

Enjoy some of the city’s best dining at spots like Brix 25, Morso Wine Bar, Mossimo Italian Grill, Tides Tavern, Anthony’s at Gig Harbor… the list goes on! You’ll also find several delicious eateries close by in the Harbor Hill shopping area, perfect for picking up something easy on the way home from work.

4. Find ample shopping at Harbor Hill.

Just 7 minutes from home, everything you need awaits. Find medical services at St. Anthony Hospital; go shopping at Target, PetCo, Albertsons, Walgreens, Big 5 Sporting Goods, Costco, and The Home Depot; grab something to eat at Subway, Papa Murphy’s, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Harbor Hill Coffee, QDOBA, and the list goes on!

5. Idyllic atmosphere.

Even though you’re super close to city conveniences, in Wellington Ridge you get to take advantage of the quiet atmosphere. The neighborhood is not a throughway and only has one way in and out, and people love the privacy and the green belt. Residents pay $23 in dues for road maintenance and common area landscaping too, so it’s always a delight to arrive home!
