John Hughes house in Lake Forest, IL is on the market. Just a block from Lake Michigan.
Love John Hughes movies and that he lived in the Chicagoland area and made movies here. He is known for successful films like Home Alone and Home Alone 2; Ferris Bueller’s Day Off; Planes, Trains and Automobiles; The Breakfast Club; Some Kind of Wonderful; Sixteen Candles; Pretty in Pink and Weird Science.
Sadly we are without this talented filmmaker as he died in 2009 of a heart attack at the age of 59 while walking on a street in Manhattan.
His home in Lake Forest is on the market with Coldwell Banker for $4,295,000. A classic English house style with a brick and stucco exterior. Originally built in 1929, and like a lot of older homes has stunning millwork and built-ins.
A whooping 10 bathrooms involves some being en-suite bedrooms. Six bedrooms and a first floor in-law arrangement bedroom.
Perfect for entertaining or a large family. The John Hughes house has an in-ground pool and lovely landscaping all set on over 2 acres. Unlike Home Alone, the attic is unfinished.
A total of 21 rooms in the house. I am showing you just a few of them like this formal living area. I’ll take the velvet fringed ottoman in the center of the room.
Such a cozy room with the curved sofas nestled around that gold ornate coffee table. What does the Christmas tree make you think about? The drawer storage in this part of the kitchen is jaw dropping. If I could afford this house I would have no trouble filling them up.
Another view of the kitchen area. Most of the rooms in the house have the same parentheses-type openings that I think is so nice.
Imagine the stars that may have lounged around the pool back in the 80s and 90s like Matthew Broderick, Maccaulay Culkin, and my favorite John Candy.
There’s oodles more to see of the John Hughes house on Coldwell Banker.
