After sitting idle for nearly four months, the home of the late filmmaker John Hughes has just returned to market with a secret weapon in the form of an $885K price chop. We were there to pay tribute when the exquisite Lake Forest manse first debuted at $5.89M. Set on a 2-acre spread mere blocks from the lakefront, the home's renovated and expanded interiors are definitely worth a second look. Inside, there's plenty of vintage charm to go around (read: vaulted beam ceilings, plantation shutters, and terra cotta floors). The 21-room, 11,000-square foot compound also features a library, rec room, six fireplaces, a patio, and an in-ground pool. The ask? $4.995M.
