The Skinny: The legendary architect Louis Kahn, a Philadelphia native who designed great buildings from there to Bangladesh, didn't produce many private homes over the course of his career. Of those that survive, the quirky, brick and concrete designs—plus, a desire to leave great work untouched—has led to poor market performance. Case in point, the one-bedroom Esherick House, which has been on the market for years without takers. Now, another Kahn creation is coming to market: the Fisher-Kahn House in Hatboro, Pa. Given by the original owner to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, who instituted a preservation easement for the grounds, the house is now listed for $600K and has a much more manageable four bedrooms and 2.5 baths.
