Here’s one home that any kid can appreciate. The home made famous by the booby-trapping antics of Macaulay Culkin in the 1990 holiday hit movie, “Home Alone,” is now for sale for $2.4 million.



According to Reuters, John and Cynthia Abendshien own the 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath home and are downsizing since their daughter is grown. The couple lived in the home during the six-month long film shoot and Culkin even became their daughter’s friend.

The home is on .53 acres and features a gourmet kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, a sunroom, a dormered attic bedroom and a detached garage. It is located just a few blocks from Lake Michigan. Winnetka real estate can be quite pricey and the village is considered to be the richest in Illinois; Winnetka’s median home value is $777,900.


For anyone interested, there was a large surge in house break-ins years back, but it has been pretty quiet since. Additionally, there is a suspected serial killer, an older gentleman, that lives next door. Last but not least, although the basement does have it's own entrance, an older furnace lies in the middle of "haunted and scary" unfinished lowest floor.

That picture is actually a boy dressed as a girl. Producers didn't want to upset any real girls by using their photo for this scene.

Probably why he wouldn't let Kevin stay in his room, even if he was growing on his ass.

Never. I hate bugs. Tarantula's freak me out. You put on one me and I'd scream like Marv did in Home Alone 1.
