The six bedroom, four bath home was listed on June 3 and has since attracted a variety of suitors, according to the home’s listing agent.
“We’ve had serious interest and people that just want to come through because it was their favorite movie,” Jill Blabolil, of @Properties, told ABC News.
The new owner will be the third to own the home since the movie’s filming, according to Blabolil. Also included in the price is a “Sixteen Candles” poster that has been passed to each owner.
The home has been renovated since its “Sixteen Candles” moment of fame and now includes a backyard fireplace and outdoor kitchen.
The Evanston area, a suburb just outside Chicago, is also home to Northwestern University. The area has proven to be a popular movie location, partially because of director John Hughes' affinity for the Chicago suburbs where he lived as a teen. “Home Alone,” “The Weather Man” and “Uncle Buck” have all been set in Evanston's tree-lined, traditional neighborhoods, according to Blabolil.
