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.
