"Home Alone" House for Sale in Winnetka

Home Alone Home

Plucky hero, Keven McAllister (Macaulay Caulkin), hasn't set foot in this Winnetka house since 1990, but the memory of him setting off wildly inventive booby traps lives on in this Winnetka home, now for sale for $2,400,000.  On any given day, cars can be seen slowing down in front of the home to snap photos and imagine the young child left behind trying to thwart off the two home burglers, Harry and Marv.  

The 14 room, four-bedroom brick home famously features the staircase that Culkin sledded down, and sits on approximately 1/2 acre, just a few blocks north from downtown Winnetka. The current homeowners purchased the home for $875,000 in 1988 and decided to move at this time because their children have grown and moved out.  

Because of the home's Hollywood history, all potential buyers must be prequalified before being allowed to tour the home.  

The home was staged by my friend, Claudia McLaughlin of CMF Transitional Organization.  Click Winnetka Home Alone Home to see photos of her staging work.

Great presentation!  Famous house I'm sure you will have good luck with closing this one.

It's a beautiful home and you have presented it well, Margaret.  Any "low down" on how the movie producers chose a house in Winnetka?

Love this house. I'll be flipping through the rolodex for the $2 million buyers who might be interested!
