Back in 1893, if you wanted something built right in the Puget Sound area, you turned to August F. Heide. Heide and his partner Charles Hove were "the" architects responsible for most development in Everett through the end of the 19th century. You can find four of his buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, including Everett's Carnegie Library and the Snohomish County Courthouse. He also designed the 4-BR home at 2107 Rucker Avenue for himself. Per paperwork filed with the National Register, the "modest but beautifully designed 1895 cottage...is one of the finest homes in the Rucker Grand Avenue Historic District." Despite getting a studs-out remodel in 2013, the home still bears plenty of its original charm thanks to the painstaking process of removed and reinstalling all of the original woodwork. There's $20K worth of kitchen upgrades and what appears to be dueling tubs in the main bathroom. Plus, the attic space just looks so cool. It's a well-known home, features in books, calendars and tours, so just be prepared to share it with others (in a way) if you buy it.
