Home Alone house hits the market for US$5.2 million

Twelve years after Tim and Trisha Johnson purchased the famous Home Alone mansion in East Winnetka for nearly US$1.6 million, the recently revamped property is back on the market, now listed at just under US$5.2 million.

Set behind a wrought-iron gate on a tree-lined street along Lake Michigan’s North Shore, the Georgian-style mansion was built in 1921 and underwent a significant renovation and expansion in 2018, according to the Robb Report.

Australians will continue to seek homes along the coast in 2022.

The home gained fame as the setting for the 1990 hit film Home Alone, where it was depicted as the residence of 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin).

Kevin was famously left behind by his family during the holidays and had to protect the house from the bumbling burglars known as the Wet Bandits.

The stately red brick structure boasts five bedrooms and six bathrooms across more than 845sq m of multi-level living space, equipped with modern amenities.
