If you’ve got $2.4 million, the iconic house from the classic movie Home Alone could be yours!
Made famous by the 1990 John Hughes’ movie, Home Alone, starring a very young and incredibly adorable Macaulay Culkin, the 4,250 square foot Georgian home sits on a half-acre of land located in Winnetka, IL, a suburb of Chicago.
The home boasts 14 rooms, 3+ bathrooms, a screened-in porch, and of course the famous staircase Culkin slid down in the movie.
“The $2.4 million isn’t just because of its cinematic history,” says listing agent Marissa Hopkins of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “It really is a residential masterpiece.”
The home is currently owned by John and Cynthia Abendshien, married empty-nesters who bought the property in 1988 for $875,000.
Side Note: To prevent gawkers and fans of John Hughes’ 1990 film, there will be no open houses and all buyers will be pre-screened.
“It would be a zoo,” Hopkins says. “There are a lot of people who would like to see the Home Alone house if they were given the opportunity.”

The Highland Park house was originally listed at $2.3 million, but had most recently been offered for $1.65 million, says Coldwell Banker agent Meladee Hughes.
