'Sixteen Candles' Home for Sale in Chicago Suburb



    On a quiet tree-lined street in a Chicago suburb, a home with big Hollywood history has just hit the market.

    The six-bedroom, four-bathroom brick home at 3022 Payne Street in Evanston has been listed for $1.49 million.

    The single-family home may look familiar to fans of the iconic 1984 John Hughes film “Sixteen Candles,” as it is the home of Samantha Baker, played by Molly Ringwald, whose family forgets her 16th birthday. 

    “As you enter the foyer, you will picture yourself sharing dinner parties in the amazing dining room and the elegant living room with a wood burning fireplace and gorgeous plastic cast molding,” the listing boasts. 

    According to Forbes, the estate is being sold by investment banker Stephen Miles and his wife, who raised their children in the home.
