LAKE FOREST, Ill., Oct. 19 (UPI) -- The mansion on Chicago's North Shore where filmmaker John Hughes lived has been listed for sale by his widow.

The 17-room, 11,233-square-foot mansion set on two acres in Lake Forest, Ill., was listed Tuesday for $5.89 million. Hughes lived in the home for many years until his death in 2009 at the age of 59, the Chicago Tribune said Wednesday.

Chicago's affluent northern suburbs were notably featured in a number of Hughes's highly successful films in the 1980s and early 1990s, such as "The Breakfast Club," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" and the "Home Alone" series.

The three-story mansion, designed by architect Edwin Hill Clark, was built in 1930 and expanded in 1992. The property features six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, six fireplaces, a media room, a three-car garage and an outdoor swimming pool.
