Kenilworth Home Featured in "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" Lists for $1.799M

We all know late director John Hughes gravitated to North Shore real estate in his riotous 80s classics. That's where he lived, after all. For 1987's Planes, Trains, and Automobiles starring John Candy and Steve Martin, he selected a stately Colonial in the small lakeside village of Kenilworth as Neil Page's (Steve Martin's) family home. Well guess what, it's on the market right now for $1.799M. Selling quickly three years ago for $1.4M, it'll be interesting to see if an improved market yields improved results. We encountered news of the listing from the blog Hooked on Houses, which has movie stills featuring the house. The interiors are a bit different nowadays, though recognizable. Practically the Home Alone house in miniature, the two houses are separated by just a couple miles of lakeshore. The 1916 house boasts six beds, four baths, a library, and a sunroom. It's two blocks from the lake, but a little farther from actual lake access. Any takers?
