Illinois house featured in 'Home Alone' for sale
WINNETKA, IL -- The 14-room brick house defended from intruders by a young Macaulay Culkin in the movie "Home Alone" is up for sale in suburban Chicago for $2.4 million.
Owners John and Cynthia Abendshien bought the red-brick Gregorian in 1988 for $875,000. They tell the Chicago Tribune that they know it's not the best time to put a high-end home on the market, but that they hope the home's notoriety will help.
The 4,250-square foot house sits on a half-acre lot in suburban Winnetka, about 20 miles north of Chicago. There are four bedrooms and it features the staircase that Culkin sledded down in the 1990 movie written by John Hughes.
Only pre-qualified buyers can make appointments to see the house, and no open houses are planned.
