Yep, you could own the Lake Forest home of the late John Hughes.
The asking price for the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom, 11,233-square-foot home is $5.89 million, according to the listing by Coldwell Banker. (And, in case you're wondering: If you put down $1.18 million and finance for 30 years at a 4.205% rate, your monthly payment will be roughly $23,000.)
The home is within a block of Lake Michigan in the Lake Forest's historic district, according to the listing. The home features a handsome library, elegant dining room and living room, lovely garden room, huge family room, media room, an interchangeable office suite, and a three-car heated garage.
There's also amazing original millwork, six fireplaces, a swimming pool, four bluestone terraces, and professionally landscaped grounds, according to the listing.
The home, originally built for Arthur Farwell Tuttle in 1929, had a substantial two-story addition in 1992. A second floor office includes custom built-in desks, book cases, and a wood-burning fireplace, which bears the trademark of Hughes Entertainment within the mantle.
