Cusack Family Sells Childhood Home


She's gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.
-Lloyd Dobler played by John Cusack in Say Anything, 1989


Who else remembers that movie and fell in love with it?? I loved that movie! OK, so I am dating myself yet again. 
Before appearing on the big screen, actors John, Joan, Ann, Bill and Susie Cusack called the Chicago suburb Evanston home. The five siblings attended Piven Theatre Workshop while living in a historic 6-bedroom with views of Lake Michigan.
Now after reportedly being in the family for more than 40 years, the Cusack residence has sold for $940,000. Located at 838 Sheridan Rd, the home first hit the market in June and received a price cut in October. Property records show the children’s mother, Ann “Nancy” Cusack, was the owner.
Built in 1910, the house boasts beautiful architectural details including crown molding, dark wood trim, leaded glass windows, hardwood floors and built-in shelves. As kids, the Cusacks enjoyed a large grassy backyard spanning more than a quarter acre as well as Clark Square Park across the street on the lake.
The children’s father, Dick Cusack, was also an actor and filmmaker who died in 2003. Known for his roles in “The Fugitive” and “While You Were Sleeping,” his film legacy has been continued by all five kids. John has starred in “Being John Malkovich” among other films, and Joan has received two Academy Award nominations for her supporting roles in “Working Girl” and “In & Out.”
