The six-bedroom brick house in northwest Evanston where the 1984 classic teen comedy “Sixteen Candles” was filmed finally sold on June 28 for $1.135 million, after two years on and off the market.
The three-story, 3,250-square-foot house is in a neighborhood that has been popular with filmmakers. In “Sixteen Candles” it was the cinematic home of the movie’s main character, played by Molly Ringwald, and her family.
The sellers took a loss on the home, which they purchased in 2006 for $1.25 million. They first listed it in June 2016 for $1.499 million. Over the next two years, they had the house on and off the market at a variety of price points, down to as low as $1.199 million in December 2017. They then boosted their asking price in June to $1.425 million.
Built in 1931, the house has two fireplaces, a media room on the third floor, a new kitchen with a breakfast room and an attached two-car garage. Outside are a terrace, an outdoor kitchen and a wood-burning stone fireplace.
Public records do not yet identify the buyers.
