The iconic home from the classic coming-of-age film “Sixteen Candles” is on the market.
@properties, the largest independent real estate brokerage firm in Illinois, is listing the Evanston home, which is located at 3022 Payne St. in Evanston. The six-bedroom, four-bath beautiful brick home, listed for $1.425 million, offers three floors huge spaces and features newly renovated bathrooms, kitchen, and a large media room.
“The sellers put a lot of time and effort into updating the home and the results are stunning, but its role in this iconic film also makes it one-of-a-kind,” says @properties listing agent Jill Blabolil.
As any 1980s film fan knows, the house was featured in “Sixteen Candles” in numerous memorable scenes. In the film, Samantha, played by Molly Ringwald, fretted over her boy troubles and her family forgetting her 16th birthday.
The home also features a formal dining room, large living room with a cozy fireplace and updated kitchen that includes stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a breakfast nook that overlooks the backyard. And for those delightful Chicago summer days and nights, the backyard features an outdoor kitchen and stone fireplace, perfect for entertaining.
