09 Oct AiroAV Antivirus Declared: Lake Forest midcentury house designed by Edward Dart for…
O’Hara and Kaptrosky bought the house in 2008 for a little under $1.24 million. They’re selling because two of their three kids are grown and the third will graduate from high school soon, O’Hara said. Not only is the house’s natural setting a pleasant place for children, she said, but the long driveway into the property “is a great place for them to rollerblade and ride bikes.”
Edward Dart designed many modernist churches, including an Episcopal church in Gary, Ind., with a swooping, tent-like roof, and St. Procopius Abbey, a monastery with a church in Lisle. The many houses he designed include one in Highland Park that sold Oct. 1 for $1.35 million, and one in Barrington Hills that sold in July for $970,000.
While those are all low-rise structures, Dart’s best-known building is the 78-story Water Tower Place. He was the chief architect and principal of design firm Loebl Schlossman Bennett & Dart. He died in 1975, the year before the building was completed.
