First Molly Ringwald’s actual home hit the market, and now one of her fictional homes is up for grabs too.
Located in a Chicago suburb, at 3022 Payne Street in Evanston, Illinois, is the six-bedroom brick house that featured in the 1984 film “Sixteen Candles”. Directed by John Hughes, the coming-of-age comedy follows high-school sophomore Samantha “Sam” Baker (played by Ringwald), whose family forgets her 16th birthday due to her sister’s wedding.
Built in 1931, the home’s 3,250 square feet are spread across three floors and a finished basement. It comes with four full baths, a spacious foyer, a dining room, and a living room with a wood burning fireplace. The new kitchen includes a breakfast room and a chalkboard wall, while the outdoor kitchen has a wood burning stone fireplace. Naturally, it’s had some upgrades since the eighties, but the stairway remains the same as does some of the home’s moldings.
