A Christmas Classic

The suburban house was the setting of the 1990 holiday classic, Home Alone. In the film, eight-year-old Kevin McAllister’s (Macaulay Culkin) family accidentally leaves him behind on the way to a Paris trip.

While having the time of his life at home, a pair of burglars target the house. Hijinks ensues when the young boy sets up booby traps all over the place to mess with their plans.

According to the Dawn McKenna Group, the real estate team selling the property, this is a “rare opportunity to own an iconic piece of American pop culture.”

“Nestled on a picturesque, tree-lined street in east Winnetka, the home is elegantly poised behind a wrought-iron gate, epitomizing classic Chicago suburban architecture.”

Modern-day Luxury

The house on Lincoln Avenue was originally built in 1921 then fully revamped and expanded in 2018. The real estate team said that the previous owners almost doubled the livable footage after the renovation.

Its interior looks quite different from when it was the setting of the classic movie. Inside, it’s now more minimalist with mostly black and white furniture and decor.

Featuring a “magazine-worthy” gourmet kitchen, a fully equipped gym, a state-of-the-art movie theater, and an indoor sports court, the home has definitely been upgraded for modern buyers.

However, its current owners have still taken the “utmost care in maintaining the architectural detail and integrity of the home’s most memorable and recognizable spaces.”
