A picture of young Macauley Culkin, jaw dropped, hands to face draws an instant image from a scene in the 1990 blockbuster hit “Home Alone“. The movie focused on a mischievous boy left behind and forced to thwart two inept burglars from pillaging his parent’s home. Now, more than 20 years later, you can relive the scenes when you own this piece of iconic Hollywood in the suburbs of Chicago, since the two-story red-brick home was placed on the market for $2.4 million.
Located in the North Shore area in Winnetka, the 4,250-square-foot, four-bedroom Georgian Colonial also offers a large patio and screened-in porch to enjoy lake breezes sans the bugs. There is garden space galore and its own greenhouse on a half-acre lot. The classically designed interior of the 1920’s home no longer bears garish wallpaper, dated tile countertops, or resembles the mess left behind by little Macauley, except the basement remains unfinished. It is merely a 35 minute train ride away from the city and truly serves as a pristine and idyllic family home with much more to credit than just time on the big screen.
