Check out the Lake Forest Showhouse – Former Home of John Hughes


Check out the Lake Forest Showhouse – Former Home of John Hughes

When the name John Hughes is mentioned, most of us think of the classic films The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, to name a few. John Hughes was a beloved screenwriter, director and producer who left a legacy of work that shaped peoples’ lives. Now his spectacular former home is on display as part of the 2015 Lake Forest Showhouse & Gardens, an event that happens every other year, sponsored by the Lake Forest Chapter of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago. This year’s showhouse will be open from 4/25 through 5/17.

The Bath & Kitchen Showplace is particularly interested in the showhouse this year; not just because of the popularity of Hughes but also because one of our manufacturers, ROHL, is featured in the home’s kitchen.

Take a look at some of the pictures of the Lake Forest Showhouse, and the ROHL appliances used in the estate’s kitchen:

The exceptional craftsmanship, superior materials and attention to detail are evident throughout the entire estate. This estate includes 7 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, a handsome library, elegant dining room and living room, garden room, huge family room, media room, an interchangeable office suite and 3 car garage. Additional features include original millwork, 6 fireplaces, a swimming pool, bluestone terraces and beautiful professionally landscaped grounds.
