The North Shore estate of the late screenwriter and director John Hughes has returned after an eight month absence, however, it has reentered the market with a hefty price bump. The home, which was recently open to the public for this year's Lake Forest Showhouse & Gardens tour, is now asking $4.825 million—a $530,000 increase from its most recent $4.295 million ask. Hughes' former estate has bounced on and off the market numerous times since 2011 when it first listed for $5.89 million. The 11,000 square foot estate, which spans over two acres, features six bedrooms, six full baths, four half-baths, six fireplaces, a pool and is within walking distance to Lake Michigan. While Hughes was a Hollywood phenom, he remained loyal to the Chicago area as this home served as his primary residence.
