The Sixteen Candles House Is for Sale
Sorry, Jake Ryan isn’t included.
If you’ve got $1.499 million to spare, you can own a piece of 80s history. The picture-perfect brick house from the John Hughes film, Sixteen Candles, was just put on the market. In the movie, it’s home to Molly Ringwald’s character, Samantha Baker, and her family, who forgets her 16th birthday, leading to a lot of teenage angst, crazy shenanigans, and a swoon-worthy kiss on a dining table.
In real life, the 3,250-square-foot, three-story home is located in Evanston, Illinois (a Chicago suburb). It has six bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and 2 half-bathrooms. Special features include beautiful crown molding, a renovated and modern kitchen, and a large backyard with an outdoor fireplace and kitchen. Plus, there’s plenty of space to hang out and watch 80s movies with a media room in the attic and a recreation room in the basement.
