The Home Alone House in Winnetka Hits the Market for $2.4 Million

New, 1 comment

House for sale: Perfect for booby trapping against dim-witted thieves. Yep, the house that Kevin McCallister defended from Harry and Marv (AKA, "The Wet Bandits") in Home Alone is back on the market for the first time since the movie was filmed there in 1990. A bonus: If you buy this home, you get to have lots of random tourists photographing themselves and shooting video on your front lawn. The current owners reportedly paid $875,000 for the 4BD, 3.2BA home in 1988, and they're trying to sell it for $2.4 million. The interior looks far less colorful and Christmassy than it was in the movie. The 4,250-square-foot home was built in 1920, and it sits on a half-acre lot, according to the listing. The move comes about a year after another iconic North Shore home featured in a John Hughes movie hit the market (that would be Cameron's house in Ferris Bueller's Day Off). That home is still on the market in Highland Park, and it was recently priced at $1.65 million.
