Are Highland Park home buyers Dart-bored?

A 1975 article published shortly after architect Edward Dart's death called him Chicago's "leading church designer," according to a recent overview of Dart's work.

If the reception accorded the two Dart homes we wrote about last June is any indication, he's not being worshipped by Highland Park home buyers: neither home apparently sold, despite one being offered well below its 2005 price.

Another Highland Park home designed by Dart has just been listed for $2,495,000. The 4,453 square foot home has 5 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths and is on a 4.6 acre site at 1021 Lake Cook Rd that also hosts a 2,700 square foot home being sold "as-is."

Highland Park can boast more modernist homes than any of Chicago's North Shore suburbs, an area where buyers have shown a distinct preference for traditional styles.

Will this Dart home get a better reception from buyers than the other two?
