The Planes, Trains & Automobiles house for sale in Kenilworth

You'll hopefully be able to reach 230 Oxford Rd in Kenilworth with fewer mishaps than Steve Martin and John Candy endured on their way there in Trains, Planes & Automobiles.

The 6-bedroom home has three full and two half baths, a 3-car garage on a 90 x 160 lot within two blocks of Lake Michigan. According to the listing, which came on the market several days ago, it has "lots of recent updates."

The asking price is $1,799,000. It sold for $1,400,000 in August of 2009 nearly a year-and-a-half after it was featured in Chicago Magazine's Deal estate column at an asking price of $2.773M, down from its original list of $3.4M.

A more iconic movie home, the Home Alone house in neighboring Winnetka, was originally listed for $2.4M in May of last year and closed in March of this year for $1,585,000.
