Known as the "Dean of Tacoma Architects," Carl August Darmer and his partner William Farrell were responsible for some of early Tacoma's most notable buildings, some of which still stand today. Along with the many hotels and businesses he designed, he was also responsible for over 100 homes, including North Fifth Street House, a 1903-built 5-BR that just hit the market for $1.4M. This Colonial Revival masterpiece has been maintained and renovated over the years, finding a balance between its original glory and modern livability. The property also includes a gazebo, gardens and carriage house that has space for three cars and a separate living space. Only two families have called this 16K-square-foot lot home since it was built. Who's going to be lucky No. 3?
