Where to Look for Contemporary Homes in Chicago’s North Suburbs

Contemporary House in Highland ParkOn Sunday a gentleman called me inquiring about contemporary homes in the north suburbs. I immediately suggested he and his wife consider Highland Park. I’ve shown many contemporary houses there. Shown left is a contemporary home a couple of my clients were very interested in. Unfortunately for them, the sellers accepted an offer before my clients could fly here to see it. It sold for $752K a little over a year ago.

It isn’t that there aren’t contemporary homes in other northern suburbs. It’s just that Highland Park has more than its share of them. Currently in our multiple listing service there are 42 houses for sale in Highland Park where the style is contemporary. The next highest is Deerfield with only 13 contemporary houses for sale.
