"Planes, Trains and Automobiles" Home for Sale
The home that Steve Martin's character Neal Page tries so desperately to get home to in time for Thanksgiving, including reluctantly teaming up with loudmouth Del Griffith (portrayed by John Candy) in the 1987 comedy "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" is currently for sale. The house is featured at the very end of the movie when Neal Page arrives home and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, invites Del Griffith to join him despite all of the grief he has put him through.
Chicago Now indicates it is located at 230 Oxford Road, in Kenilworth, IL for $1.7 million and that 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" along with the prior listed and selling price.
The Real Estate Listing also has additional information along with a slideshow showing other pictures of the home if you would like to check it out.
