‘Home Alone’ house in Illinois appears to already have a buyer

2 Min Read

The house where the iconic holiday classic “Home Alone” was filmed has apparently found a buyer.

The iconic home, located in the 600 block of Lincoln Avenue in Winnetka, went up for sale on May 24 with an asking price of $5.25 million.

According to its listing on Coldwell Banker, the home went “contingent” on May 31 — which means a sale is pending.

Built in 1921, and fully renovated and expanded in 2018, the 9,126-square-foot Georgian-style home features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a basement and a three-car garage.

While on the outside, the house still maintains many of the lovable characteristics of the McCallister home, the interior has been fully renovated and features several luxury amenities like a gourmet kitchen, a fully equipped gym, a movie theater and an indoor sports court.

Tucked away in north suburban Winnetka, the home is only half a mile from Lake Michigan and about an hour’s drive away from downtown Chicago.

The holiday favorite “Home Alone” hit the big screen in 1990 and the home acted as the peaceful backdrop for Kevin McCallister’s antics as he attempted to thwart a pair of inept criminal’s attempts to burglarize the house.

While a pair of bumbling burglars do not appear to be included in the sale, potential buyers still have a chance to own an iconic piece of cinematic history.

Fans of the film had the opportunity to stay in the home back in 2021 when the owners rented it out for one night only on Airbnb.

The home last sold in 2012 for $1.59 million.
